  • When loading files, you must press click to add files. Do not use the drag and drop function.
Lesson 103 | “Troubleshooting a Connection Error”

Particularly on initial installation, some users experience difficulty establishing communication with the DSC Sport Tuning Software. This is usually due to a mismatch between the COM Port your computer is using for the CP210x USB driver and the COM Port the DSC Sport Tuning Software is looking for. In this lesson, we walk you through how to match your computer’s COM Port settings to that of the Tuning Software. Reminder: Always close out of the Tuning Software and disconnect and reconnect the DSC Sport controller after making any COM Port changes!
  1. Checking your COM port settings.
    • With the DSC controller connected, navigate to your computer’s control panel, then Device Manager.
    • In Device Manager, locate Ports > Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridgeand identify the COM port number. Example: (COM3)
    • Navigate to the DSC Sport tuning software. Go to Tools Serial Settings. Identify the selected COM port number.
  2. Matching your COM port settings:
    • Close out of the DSC Sport tuning software
    • Unplug and reconnect the DSC controller
    • Double check the COM Port number in your Device Manager
    • Open the tuning software
    • Change the COM Port to match the COM Port selected in your Device Manager
    • Check to see if you can now perform a Read All function in the tuning software.
  3. Resetting COM port settings.
    • In the Device Manager, locate and open Ports > Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge.
    • Go to Port Settings > Advanced
    • Select COM Port 1
    • Close out of the DSC tuning software. Disconnect and reconnect the DSC Sport controller
    • Reopen the DSC tuning Software. Go to Serial Settings, make sure the COM Ports are matched.
    • Go to Tools > Read All to check if there is communication.
    • Repeat steps above, trying various COM ports (You shouldn’t need to go past COM10)
    • If you are still having difficulty connecting, repeat steps above, try your device’s other USB ports.
Lesson 105 | “Reading & Writing .pdts Files”

Learn how to read and write calibration files (.pdts) to your DSC Sport controller and check your firmware version.

Lesson 110 | “Checking & Updating Firmware”

Checking your Firmware Version:

  1. Connect your DSC Sport controller
  2. Open the DSC Sport Tuner
  3. Go to Tools Test Serial Port
  4. Press Start.
  5. Enter “v” in the “Write Out” text box
  6. Press Send
  7. Your firmware version will display in the “Read In” box

 

Updating your Firmware version:

NOTE: In order to communicate with the DSC Utility and update your firmware, you must have an “ENC” firmware version (this will be displayed in the firmware version name).

  1. Download the Firmware Installer (DSC Utility). Once downloaded, unzip the file folder to run the DSC Utility.
  2. Once downloaded, unzip the firmware file (firmware should have a .dsc extension).
  3. If you wish to keep your current .pdts file, open the DSC Tuner, read and save your .pdts file. Rewrite it to the controller after step 8, if desired.
  4. Connect DSC controller before running DSC Utility.
  5. Check the “Firmware and EEprom” box in the DSC Sport Utility
  6. Open the desired Firmware file.
  7. Press “Update.”
  8. Once completed, exit the DSC Utility and disconnect your DSC Sport controller to reset the board. It is good practice to open the DSC Sport Tuner to check the current firmware version and read your .pdts file to ensure the update installed properly.
Lesson 125 | “Datalogging with the Record Function”

  1. Open the DSC Sport Tuner and confirm that you have connection.
  2. Go to Tools > Switch Input.
  3. Select your desired input/output parameters and press Set, then Begin
  4. Go to Tools > Record
  5. When ready to begin logging data, press the Record button (circle)
