esch...the readme.txt says the firmware update should take 15 secs...still waiting. I'm on my 4th try.

All I get is:

AquaController Update Firmware starting...

>> Connect...OK!

>> Sent login...OK!

>> Sent password...OK!

>> Check version...OK!

Version [3.300000]

The webpage update said it should take 1 min..it took 5...

why doesn't apple make controllers?

Well, I will say that Neptune's tech support is fast, but their latest suggestion is to reboot windows into safe mode and try again.

Again, why can't Apple make controllers b/c then they'd work every time...

more to come.

if you want to bring it over and try on my pc you can. Just need to drink a white russian with me.

I'd pass out after the first two sips.

Hmmm..I guess I could unplug the head unit, but I wonder what the plugs would do w/out the head unit? I'd have to assume that if that there is no head unit, then the default mode is either "on" or whatever its current state was when it was unplugged from the head unit.

Which method are you using? I it took me a couple of tries when I was installing the beta...then I wiped my settings, then the web pages were blank...then I got it all working.

I'm kinda scared to try again. ;)

I tried option A and option B.

My next option is to buy a new one and forget all this update craziness. You'd think it'd be easier than this.

well I successfully bricked my AC III.

It doesn't respond to any buttons and the display is stuck on the Mem Test screen.

Great...now I get to wait prob 11am when their tech support open up.

Anyone know how to hard restart/reset these things?

Unplug it.

I did that...it just comes back to a blank screen.

Neptune says I need to reinstall the firmware via option B so dapettit is coming over today to see what we can do with it.

Cross your fingers.

Did you get it working?

waiting for dapettit to come over. Unfortunately I was called away all day so I won't be able to update it till tonight. And I'm away from my tank all day so I'm crossing my fingers.

I'm not versed on the reefkeepers, but I know the AC III/Apex/Pro can all be controlled and configured via your web browser on your computer (even works on macs). I don't know if you can do this on the Reefkeepers.

The iphone app is only for Aquacontrollers.
