Pavel > thanks for your quick reply and help with the bad link..
Beside all of that I swear I also tried it with hthe proper firmware
version as I have my own local cache of all the prism2 firmwares :-)

I will check again my work and report back but I believe I am still
getting the same problem trying to flash with the correct version firmware
as detailed.. and I still get the (firmware not compatible) type error
regardless if I flash with the -i option or not.

Will try this again later today and report back with results.
THANKS

Steve
