For those of you who do this I suggest you do it EXACTLY as written....

Works great. Fixes the RDS problem. Still no bluetooth/navigation or radio being too loud issue, though they didn't claim this would fix that. Also supposed to enable ipod steeringwheel controls too, but my ipod is broken, so I can't test that.

It is basically a cleaned up bug free version of the ipod steering wheel control firmware that I posted a video of a couple weeks ago.

Just so you guys know, while in ipod mode, "RT" button goes back, long press of "talk" button is select, up and down arrows are self explanatory, turning the tuning knob goes forward and back tracks.

E39s should be in the US maybe late next week? At this point we are just waiting for dynavin to finish up production, get them packaged and shipped. I dont know which firmware they will have installed but it is easy enough to update if they dont.

Take note guys, when it says the Dynavin should be powered off, that doesn't include turning off your ignition. You have to turn on your ignition, then push and hold the left knob until the unit turns off.

The OP is in europe and is referring to the european DVB-T Mpeg4 tuner. It is not relevant to US dynavin owners. This new firmware adds the ipod steering wheel controls. If you dont have an ipod, you dont really need to do it.

I did it and it has some nice improvements. Now u can use next and previous on the radio while watching the nav. I think even bluetooth streaming works while watching the nav.

External DVB-T box

Is the External DVB-T a physically external unit? Its different for the "Mode" DVB-T in the main unit?

EDIT:
NEVER MIND....I SEE JEFF ALREAD ANSWER MY QUESTION.

Is the first file an update to the original zh_mcu.bin firmware or is it the same and the 2nd file is an add-on to the original? It looks like the 2nd file is only for an external DVB-T? Dont remember whether my DVN has an external DVB-T.

You have to do them both, the zh_mcu.bin is an update to what you already have and preps the unit for the second part, which adds the steering wheel ipod controls and fixes a couple other functions.

Your Dynavin is set up for an external tuner, all V5s are. But since the US tuner isnt out yet, it isnt relevant to you.

The second part is for the steering wheel ipod controls and external tuner? So if I want the steering wheel ipod controls, I have to apply both?

I have been reading the threads here for some time now and I finally registered here also. Hope i can help some people here also.

About the update i posted in Dynavin forum: http://dynavin.freeforums.org/dynavi...2010-t452.html
You need to update with both zh_mcu.bin and zh8202t.bin files!
zh_mcu.bin file updates the button mappings
zh8202t.bin file updates the unit
If you only update with one of them, you will get into problems.

The external DVB-T part is only relevant if you are in Europe. I'm sure that when Dynavin releases the US version of the DTV tuner, it will come with firmware compatible with this latest device firmware.
