Tune File Version Changes

This release saves *.ctz and *.coz tune files using an updated format. All new *.ctz and *.coz tune files that are saved using V7.5.28, V8.2.24, and V2.07.140 (or later versions) will no longer be compatible with older software or firmware versions. Attempts to open a new file using old software will result in error $0525 "Tune file is not compatible with firmware" or "Tune file is not compatible with current software version". Any customer that needs to open *.ctz or *.coz files that have been created or saved using this or a later version of the EFILive software, must also use this or a later version.

Note: Existing *.ctz and *.coz files saved using previous versions of the EFILive software can be opened by this and later versions of the EFILive software.

To assist customers in updating their tune file databases to take advantage of the latest tune file security format, customers can use the [F8: Tools] ->[F6: Bulk Files] -> [Update Files] option that allows the updating of tune files stored inside *.bbx files and tunes stored within folders on your PC.

Tuners who support remote customers MUST ensure their customers also update to maintain compatibility.
