V-1HD: How to Update the System Program Firmware

Items Needed:




  • Never apply this update data to any product other than the V-1HD. This update data may destroy the data or system program of other products.

  • Never power-off your V-1HD while the update is in progress! If a power failure or similar accident occurs during the update process, the V-1HD won’t be able to start up in normal operating mode. This will require service, please contact support if this occurs.





Step 1 

Download the System Program Firmware update file from the V-1HD Downloads Page.

Click on the System Program link, scroll to the bottom of the page, and download the .ZIP file.





It will appear in your downloads folder as v1hd_sys_v202.zip.


Step 2

Extract the contents of the .ZIP file, which contains the file V-1HD_ver2020.bin.



Do not try to open or rename the .BIN file, it is not a program that you run or install. You will upload it to the V-1HD in a later step.


Step 3

If you have not already, download and install the V-1HD RCS Control Software for Windows or MacOS from the V-1HD Downloads Page.



You will use this software to upload the .BIN file to the V-1HD.


Step 4

Turn off the V-1HD if it is powered on.

Hold down the [ AUDIO ] button and turn on power to the V-1HD.

You can let go shortly after you turn it on.



Step 5

Start the installed V-1HD RCS software.



Step 6

Use a USB 2.0 cable to connect the V-1HD to your computer.


Step 7

If successfully connected, the [Connection] button will be solid green.

If it is not, click on it to attempt the connection again, it is otherwise automatic.


Click the [ Pref ] button at the bottom left of V-1HD RCS, in the Connection section. 



Step 8

Click the [ Update ] button in the dialog box to display the update dialog box.


Step 9

Click the [ Bin File ] button to select the "V-1HD_ver2020.bin" file that you extracted from the .zip file in the first step.



Step 10

Click the [ Update ] button.
* The update takes around 5 minutes to complete.
* If the [ Update ] button doesn't turn blue and you can't click on it, restart your computer, and try again.




When "Update Completed" is displayed, you can quit the V-1HD RCS Software.



Step 11

Press the [ POWER ] button twice to reset the power and boot the V-1HD again.
