I’m Kevin, the new Firmware engineering project manager who will be overseeing the development of Spectrum’s firmware in the future. Previously our firmware development was done through the combined efforts of Grant (@Lore_Wonder), Niraj (@nkyadav), and Kira (@Kira). Hopefully now that we have someone (me!) dedicated to the development of our firmware we will see some great progress.
My goal is to develop market-leading features whilst giving users an enjoyable bug-free experience when using our products. But in order to do so, our team must understand the needs of the community regarding our firmware development. Please help us accomplish that by participating in this survey!
My current plans for our firmware development:
- Enable Adaptive-Sync and Backlight Strobing together. (short term)
- Support for Mac users to upgrade their firmware. (mid-term)
- Improved user experience. (long term)
Now, on to the star of the show: I would like to announce the arrival of ES07D03’s latest firmware: version 107! This firmware was concocted from community feedback and I would like to thank the community for trying out our test builds.
To download the new firmware, please head to our download page. Then, go to Spectrum ES07D03 > Scaler Firmware. 107 will be amongst the available firmware for you to download.
Note: As with every firmware update, there is a possibility of bricking the device. Please proceed at your own risk and follow the instructions carefully.
- Added support for PS5 Variable Refresh Rates.
- Added support for display stream compression (DSC) over USB Type-C.
- Added support for DDC commands from non-current source devices
- Improved monitor power up time and wake up time.
- Improved compatibility for lower refresh rates over DP on Nvidia 30 series cards.
- Resolved issues of screen flickering and distortion for some users.
- Resolved issue where video input settings were not reset when loading factory default.
Last but not least, following every firmware version release I will create a survey a week from now to understand our user experience, so be sure to drop by later and fill out that survey too!
Thank you for reading this topic and if you have any other suggestions about our firmware development please comment below and let us know!
