Subject: Re: all flashed recorders, please reflash with my latest
From: Rune Wiinberg (

Hi Jörg.

Would it be possible to use the remote pin for minimon?
Ie. have minimon use the halfduplex bidirectional functionality you wrote
about in a earlier post.
This way no hardware mod would be needed to rescue a box.

Best Regards (and thanks for your hard work)
/ Rune
