HD2 - Upgrading firmware and software

Upgrading HD2 Firmware 

Occasionally Racelogic will release new versions of firmware (internal code) for the HD2, often to introduce new features.

New firmware is loaded into the HD2 using an SD card.

 

Download the latest ‘.vvhfw’ file here

 

How do you run the update?

  • Download the upgrade file from the link above.
  • Place the .VVHFW file on the root directory of an SD card (not in the media or any other folder).
  • Power up the VBOX Video HD2 unit.
  • Load the SD card into the front panel.
  • The HD2 will double beep when the upgrade is complete (may take up to 5 minutes).
  • Turn the unit off and on again to complete the upgrade.

Note: From Firmware update 1.3.58 onwards, no power cycle will be required to complete the upgrade.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

When upgrading to the latest firmware, the cameras must be connected to the unit as they are included as part of the upgrade. However, this makes the cameras incompatible with units running older release firmware. If you have more than one unit, it is highly recommended to upgrade all units in one go or isolate upgraded units and cameras to ensure compatibility.

Upgrading VBOX Video HD2 Setup Software 

The latest VBOX Video HD2 Setup Software can be downloaded here.

 

You will be asked to specify where to save the installer; you should select your desktop.

Allow the installer to download.

If you open this ZIP file, and select ‘extract all files’ from the top left corner of the window, you can then save this to your desktop.

Now open this ‘unzipped’ folder, and click on the ‘setup.exe’ icon. This will then run through the installer – you will have to click ‘next’ a couple of times and agree to some terms and conditions.

 

Note: HD2 Setup software does have an auto-update functionality, however the software will detect and notify if there is a new version available. It will then give the option to download and install the update.
