did you get it?
He, like yourself, still lacks the 5 posts required before being able to download it. ;)

Alternatively you can toss the site some money for a subscription and bypass the post requirements.

Well lets split the cost?

I have an old Homeworks Illumination system running at 1.49. Wondering if this works with that and if it's worth it...

Yes. You're running a much older version of Illumination, 1.64 will provide a firmware update and a number of quality of life enhancements.

Thanks. I wish I could see the release notes for this upgrade. Last thing I want to upgrade all of it and then end up with a non working system.
Another reason is the old 1.49 resides on an old PC which was used to install the system back in 2007 I believe.

Thank you! Does this upgrade the processor and all devices as well? I'm thinking it should but please confirm.

It upgrades the main processor and slaved Lutron controllers, but not MI or RPM devices (they don't get updates).

I'm tempted to do it, just a bit afraid if things go south. I already replaced the processor due to some dead links, and 2 switches.

You can always flash back to 1.49 if needed, but 1.49 is an abomination that was duly replaced by newer versions.

The upgrade process is flawless and you won't see any functional changes afterwards, besides reliable web controls. Even if a flash fails for some reason it's very easy to recover the processor, just clear the memory and reflash from backup.
