How to update Firmware (or even just determine which version is installed)

Recommended Posts

I've got a JTV-59, and a Mac running OS X Catalina.  Monkey, of course, doesn't work with Catalina.  So how is it we update or check the firmware on the Variax?


I should note that I have no problems with Workbench HD or my Helix floor, and I do have the VDI cable and USB connector.


So how do I update the firmware?

Workbench HD should give you the firmware version of your JTV Variax. If I remember right, you can't update via the Helix, you have to have the USB Variax interface. If you don't have one, this is what you need.



You also need a Variax battery and in order to engage the battery, you need to have a 1/4" plugged into the Variax. This video is pretty good at running through everything you need to do. I am not sure about any Mac issues there may be. I have a PC.
