I am currently on firmware 7.183 on II Ultra.
Comfigurator version 3.13.7.0.
Comfigurator tells me there is a firmware update to 7.192. When I say yes to upgrade nothing happens.
Any idea why that might be?
(I know I can do it manually but would prefer to do it automatically)

I'm having major issues doing a cable firmware update. I have a relatively new Comfort II Ultra system which, unfortunately, failed a firmware update and stopped working.
So I have attempted to do a serial cable update as described in http://www.comfortforums.com/forum4/1216.html
I dug out my trusty old UCM serial unit which I have previously used for firmware updates. When I plugged it in as described, the UCM started up fine when the RS485 cable was connected, but as soon as the PROG connector is inserted, the UCM seems to go into a restart loop. I tried another UCM and it does the same thing, so it seems to be the controller, not the UCM.
Note that my controller does not seem to have a PP2 header. 


Am I doing something wrong, or is the firmware bricked?
Cheers,
Keith

The ucm with programming cable should be able to upgrade the firmware. Make sure the cable with 4 way and 2 way connectors are on the ucm and the 6 way connector is connected to pp1 on the comfort. They're is no pp2 on the new comfort pcb. In your photo you do not show the connections to the programming cable

I did have the cable connected to the connectors as described.
As I said, when I connected the RS485 bus, the UCM powered up as expected. As soon as.I connected the 6 way cable, it started power cycling.
As it is, I'm actually now at the airport traveling (to Singapore) for an extended period so I can't do anything about it now anyway.
I will have to sort it out when I come back to the UK.
By the sound of it, the board may have gone faulty.
Cheers,
Keith
