I've upgraded successfully both the Inspire and Remote to newest version. The updates have been confirmed via the hidden log file left behind, and subsequent upgrade attempts fail because both RC and Inspire recognize that the attempted upgrade is no newer than the installed firmware. Still can't link the RC. Have tried everything including depleting the RC battery (which took a day). I have another remote which links perfectly, but the troubled remote also linked previously. Is this just a firmware anomaly? Anybody have any ideas? I'm desperate for a solution.
