Legend
User Manual
Overview
The Legend™ dome is programmed through a graphical programming interface. The end-user’s system
administrator and/or the installer will do the programming. Be aware that the installer would have turned on the
passcodes for the system during installation, if they were to be used during normal operation.
Legend is the next generation PTZ dome camera that maintains and enhances many of the features of
CyberDome that you have come to rely on. One obvious difference that you will see is that the text-based
onscreen display (OSD) programming interface has been replaced with an easy-to-use graphical programming
interface (Figure 1).
The Legend protocol is backward compatible. So you can replace older domes in an existing Digiplex system
with Legend domes. The hardware, however, is not backward compatible. Other enhancements that relate to
performance and operation include passcode protection that prevents unauthorized personnel from changing
programming settings while still allowing operator access. The dome also now offers an Ethernet connection to
flash software upgrades over a standard IP network using a standard web browser.
CAUTION
When flashing software upgrades to the dome over a standard IP network via the dome's Ethernet
connection, ensure that the network is secured from unauthorized access. Like all Ethernet connections, the
dome's Ethernet connection has no security against unauthorized access. You may consider connecting the
Ethernet cable only when you are flashing the dome, unless you have the dome connected to a secure,
isolated network.
For additional details, refer to the data sheet and the installation manual for product specifications and
installation instructions.

Accessing the programming interface
If passcodes were turned on during installation or later, access to the programming interface will be passcodeprotected. You must log on to program the dome. Otherwise, you will be taken directly to the main
programming screen. The passcodes control who has access to the features of your dome. See Passcode screen
( Setup | Passcode ) on page 11.
The steps for accessing the programming interface from all GE keypads are similar. The following procedure is
based on the KTD-405 keypad, which is currently GE’s most popular keypad. Exceptions to the procedure for
other GE keypads are noted. You can also use the GE KTD-400 and KTD-404/304 keypads and other
manufacturers’ keypads and controllers using the PelcoD, Ultrak, Impac/485, and ASCII protocols. When
using these other protocols, all common commands used for accessing programming, operating the joystick
and iris key on the keypad, and controlling presets are supported by the Legend protocol. For an up-to-date list
of compatible keypads and protocols, please contact your GE sales representative or Technical Support.
To access the programming interface from a KTD-405 keypad:
1. At the normal display, press and hold the set
(
) key on the keypad until you hear a
beep and the programming code display
appears on the keypad’s LCD.
2. At the enter programming code display, enter
the programming access code by pressing the
9, 5, 1, and seq keys.
This code is the same for all GE keypads.
3. At the equipment selection display, press 3 to
select CAMERA (Figure 4, keypad version
1.2.09 or later) or CAMERA/RCVR
(Figure 5, keypad version 1.1.06 or earlier).
If you have an older keypad (version
1.1.06 or earlier), you will have a second
equipment selection display, at which
you need to press 1 for CYBERDOME.

6. If passcodes are turned on, select your passcode level and enter your passcode (Figure 9). If passcodes
are turned off, you will be taken directly to the main programming screen (Figure 10).
You can now access any programming parameters that are allowed by your passcode.

Navigating the programming interface
While in the programming interface, the joystick of your keypad operates in two modes depending upon what
your current action is. While moving among the menus of the programming interface, the joystick is a simulated
mouse and you enter commands using the joystick. While controlling live video, the joystick is a video controller.
So, whenever you are positioning titles or privacy masks, or programming live video features such as presets and
ShadowTours, the joystick is a video controller, in which case, you will use the keypad’s keys to enter commands.
The timeout of the keypad controls the timeout of the programming interface. The GE KTD-405 keypad times out
after five minutes of inactivity. The programming interface will therefore time out after five minutes, as well.
On screens with tabs, be aware that the last tab accessed will be the first tab accessed the next time that you enter
that page.
Joystick as simulated mouse
When the joystick is a simulated mouse, use it as described here to enter menus and commands.
Moving the cursor (the onscreen arrow)
across the menus
Figure 11. Twist the joystick knob to make selections
To move the cursor (the onscreen arrow), push or pull
the joystick in any direction. The farther that you push
or pull, the faster the cursor will move.
Making a selection in the menus
To make a selection, place the cursor over a menu,
button, check box, item in a list, or arrow of a dropdown box, and twist the knob on the joystick.
You can also use the zoom+/- key on the keypad to
make selections.
Joystick as video controller
When the joystick is controlling video, use the keypad’s keys to enter the following programming commands.
Saving (accepting) live video programming
To save or accept live video programming, such as positioned titles, privacy masks, presets, and ShadowTours,
press the iris + or the set (
) key on the keypad.
Canceling (aborting) live video programming
To cancel or abort live video programming, such as positioned titles, privacy masks, presets, and
ShadowTours, press the iris - or the esc key on the keypad.

Keypad shortcuts
The following are keypad shortcut commands carried over from CyberDome programming. Where keypad
shortcuts exist for a feature, such as setting presets, you can use keys from the keypad, instead of menus from
the programming interface, to program the feature. See Table 1. You can then go into the programming
interface and customize the programmed feature with titles and other attributes.

Basic programming
The dome is ready to operate with its defaults. Presets and ShadowTours are the most commonly used
programmable features. This section provides the step-by-step instructions for programming presets and
ShadowTours. For more challenging surveillance conditions, you can take full advantage of the dome’s
programming features. See Advanced programming on page 10.
Presets
You can set presets from the keypad or with the programming interface. If you set your presets from the keypad,
you may want to go into the programming interface to customize them with titles and exposure settings.
There are a total of 127 presets (1 through 127) that you can define for your dome. If you are using presets 62
and 63 for your left and right autopan limits, then you have a total of 125 presets that you can define.
The dome also provides the ability to remap any preset or tour command coming in from a keypad to activate
any of the 127 presets, 16 tours, or 32 macro actions. This enables you to manually initiate any of the expanded
capabilities of the dome from keypad controllers with limited command capability. See Command Map screen
( Control | Command Map ) on page 54.
Note:
Most keypads have a limited number of preset numbers they can call. If you have a GE KTD-405 keypad with firmware
version 1.2.09 or later, then you can call up all 127 preset numbers (1 through 127) directly from the keypad. If, however,
you have a GE KTD-405 keypad with an earlier version of firmware, then you can use the keypad to call up only the first
63 preset numbers (1 through 63). If you are using presets 62 and 63 for your left and right autopan limits, then you
have a total of 125 or 61 preset numbers that you can call up from the keypad. To verify your keypad’s version, press
and hold the mon key on the keypad, until the keypad beeps, then press the >> key.
Programming presets from the keypad
To program presets from the KTD-405 keypad:
1. Use the joystick to pan, tilt, and zoom the camera to the desired view.
2. Press store on the keypad.
3. Press the number keys on the keypad that correspond to the preset number you want to assign for this
position.
4. Press store again.
Note:
If the keypad does not allow you to program a desired preset, you may need to change the lowest user
definable preset in the keypad program menus. Refer to the keypad manual.
5. After programming your presets, you can verify them, one at a time, by pressing the find key on the
keypad and then pressing the number keys that correspond to each preset. If you are not satisfied with
any views, you can reprogram those preset positions starting with step 1 above.
6. If desired, go into the programming interface to customize the preset with a title and exposure settings.

Advanced programming
You will be using the graphical programming interface to program the dome. Keypad shortcuts do exist for
some programmable features. These keypad commands are carried over from CyberDome programming (see
Keypad shortcuts on page 6). Where keypad shortcuts exist for a feature, such as setting presets, you can use
keys from the keypad or you can use menus from the programming interface to program the feature.
When changing settings on any programming page, you need to confirm the new settings by selecting OK on
that page. When establishing live video settings, you need to save the live video settings (by pressing the iris +
or the set (
) key on the keypad) and save the changes made on the programming page (by selecting OK
in the programming interface) when you return to programming mode from live video mode.
Setup menu
This is the beginning of your system’s setup. Start here to number and title your dome, turn on/off or change
passcodes, establish network connectivity, set the north point, and manage your dome’s memory.
Figure 15. Setup menu
Memory screen ( Setup | Memory )
Programming and addressing for the dome are site-tied to the housing. Site-tied memory allows you to replace
cameras or move them between sites without having to reprogram cameras for each new site, because the
camera will operate using the housing memory.
The Memory screen allows you to manage your dome’s memory during setup and operation. When you clear
part or all of your dome’s memory, you are overwriting your custom programmed settings with the factory
default settings.

Figure 16. Memory screen ( Setup | Memory )
CAUTION
Clearing memory replaces your custom programmed settings with the factory default settings.
Select memory (clear options) You can clear all or specific portions of your dome’s programming, which is
saved in the housing’s site-tied memory. After selecting an option, select Clear.
Choices are Clear all (default), Clear setup options, Clear presets,
Clear macros, Clear ShadowTours, Clear areas, Clear alarm actions, and
Clear privacy masks.
Passcode screen ( Setup | Passcode )
You can control who has access to the features of your dome by distributing passcodes that allow varying
degrees of access. The dome ships with no default passcodes. When you enter the programming interface for
the first time during installation and go to Setup | Passcode, the passcode fields are blank. Blank passcode
fields mean the passcodes are turned off (disabled). You can choose to enter passcodes into the blanks. This
turns passcodes on (enabled) and a passcode will be required to enter the programming interface the next time
you access it.
CAUTION
If using passcodes, record them in a secure place. If you forget the passcodes for a dome, you will need to
send the dome back to the factory so that it can be reset by the factory with no passcodes.
If no passcodes are programmed, all users are given installer access and are not required to log on. If only the
Admin and Operator passcodes are programmed, then anyone can still access the entire programming interface
as an installer, since the Installer passcode was not programmed.

Exposure:
Autoslow shutter
This setting is available only if the Auto control setting is selected. Autoslow
shutter is a camera feature that compensates for lighting conditions. It
automatically slows the shutter speed as the light level entering the camera
decreases so that more light can be gathered to increase image clarity. This
option works best when the camera is stationary. Because of the slowing
shutter speed, any motion in the image will begin to blur. As the light level
and the shutter speed continue to decrease, the blur of the video will gradually
increase.
Choices are Off (default) and On.

Phase lock enabled
Phase lock enabled is a camera feature that allows synchronization of the
video signal to reduce the effect of picture roll on analog video switchers.
By default, the phase lock is off. As such, each camera is synchronizing its
video signal to its own internal clock crystal. This is called internal
synchronization. If you enable phase lock (select On), you are selecting what
is called line lock synchronization and the camera will synchronize its video
signal to the AC input voltage. With line lock synchronization, you also adjust
the vertical phase shift of a camera’s video signal to coordinate with other
cameras. Due to differences in cameras, environments, and cable lengths, the
phase shift will not be the same for all cameras being synchronized. Use an
oscilloscope or a GE Security vertical phase adjustment tool (KTS-56).
Contact your GE Security sales representative.
Phase adjustment
This option is available only if On is selected for Phase lock enabled.
Choices range from 0 to 127°. Default is 50°. These settings map to the 0 to
360° angle adjustment range. Use your oscilloscope or vertical phase
adjustment tool to verify settings.
Stabilization
Stabilization is a camera feature that reduces video shaking for cameras that
are located in areas prone to vibration. It works best for low frequency
vibration (3 to 10 Hz). If it is available for your camera, it creates a slight lag
and movement backward when a pan/tilt movement stops
Choices are Off and On.

Digital zoom limit
Digital zoom is an electronic camera feature that increases the apparent size
of images beyond the magnification of the camera’s optical lens. Because
image information is not also increased, there is some loss of image
resolution. So test the different settings for suitability. Selecting too high of a
digital zoom can result in the loss of video clarity for some scenes. To test:
Select a setting and use your keypad’s zoom key to zoom in and out.
Choices range from 1x to 12x (default).
Lift
Lift is a camera feature that optimizes the video’s color over long runs of
coaxial cable.
Use the joystick to adjust the lift. Right increases and left decreases the lift.
Choices range from 0 to 7. Default is 0.
CAUTION
Gain
Lift and gain compensate for long runs of video coaxial cable.
Only qualified personnel should adjust these settings. Incorrect
adjustments can impair video quality.
Gain is a camera feature that optimizes the video’s brightness over long runs
of coaxial cable. Gain increases the video signal’s amplitude to increase the
brightness of darkened video and to reduce the noise of weakened video.
Use the joystick to adjust the gain. Up increases and down decreases the gain.
Choices range from 0 to 31. Default is 0.
CAUTION
Lift and gain compensate for long runs of video coaxial cable.
Only qualified personnel should adjust these settings. Incorrect
adjustments can impair video quality.
Zoom speed
Zoom speed is a camera feature that sets the rate at which the zoom motors
operate. There are three fixed settings and one variable setting. If your keypad
provides variable-speed control for zooming, you can use the Variable setting
and the joystick's range of motion for operation. You quicken or slow the
zoom by how far you twist the joystick. Farther is faster.
Choices are Variable (default), Slow, Medium, and Fast.
Tilt up limit
Tilt up limit is a feature that sets a programmable stop for the camera at the
highest point that you want it to tilt up.
By default, the pan and tilt limits are off. Programming them turns them on.
Note:
The dome prevents any hourglassing behavior by restricting the tilt limit to 90°,
when necessary, to accommodate some pan limits set to less than 180°. To avoid
setting tilt limits too tightly, we recommend that you set the pan limits first, then
set the tilt limits.

You can program a variety of custom actions for each dome. Your custom actions include 127 preset positions,
16 ShadowTours, 32 macros, and 120 areas. You can edit the title and description of any action and you can
reassign the positions of existing presets.
The keypad’s joystick will function as a simulated mouse or video controller at different times during the
programming of your actions.
Figure 30. Actions menu
Presets screen ( Actions | Presets )
There are a total of 127 presets (1 through 127) that you can define for your dome. If you are using presets 62
and 63 for your left and right autopan limits, then you have a total of 125 presets that you can define.
The dome also provides the ability to remap any preset or tour command coming in from a keypad to activate
any of the 127 presets, 16 tours, or 32 macro actions. This enables you to manually initiate any of the expanded
capabilities of the dome from keypad controllers with limited command capability. See Command Map screen
( Control | Command Map ) on page 54.
Note:
Most keypads have a limited number of preset numbers they can call. If you have a GE KTD-405 keypad with firmware
version 1.2.09 or later, then you can call up all 127 preset numbers (1 through 127) directly from the keypad. If, however,
you have a GE KTD-405 keypad with an earlier version of firmware, then you can use the keypad to call up only the first
63 preset numbers (1 through 63). If you are using presets 62 and 63 for your left and right autopan limits, then you
have a total of 125 or 61 preset numbers that you can call up from the keypad. To verify your keypad’s version, press
and hold the mon key on the keypad, until the keypad beeps, then press the >> key.

You can program up to eight alarm inputs and two relay outputs per dome. Each alarm input can call up
(display) any preset, macro (preset tour or programmed routine), or ShadowTour. The eight alarms are
numbered from 1 to 8.
Programming tips for dome alarms
Legend domes do not handle alarms the same way as most other alarm equipment. You need to be aware of the
differences to manage the dome’s inputs and outputs effectively. Here are some key concepts.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
You can set each alarm to have up to three components: a dome action (preset, tour, or macro), a
relay 1 action (on or off), and a relay 2 action (on or off). The relays can be used to trip such devices as
lights, doors, or DVMRs. A dome action is not required. You could have an alarm just action one or
both relays.
The priority that you set for the alarms determines which one is actioned.
When an alarm action is set to a preset, tour, or macro, the camera will remain with that action until the
operator issues another camera command from the keypad. The Resume feature is disabled by alarms.
Alarms are not held in a queue. Only the highest priority alarm that is activated is actioned. If several
alarms are activated at the same time, then the one with the highest priority is actioned. After that
alarm has finished, the next highest priority alarm will be actioned only if it is still active. If a higher
priority alarm is activated while a lower priority alarm is being actioned, then the higher priority alarm
overrides the lower priority alarm and is actioned instead. After the higher priority alarm has finished
being actioned, then the first, lower priority alarm will have its action restarted only if it is still active.
You do not need to acknowledge dome alarms in the same sense as required by typical alarm
equipment. To move the camera from the position of the alarmed action and reenable the Resume
feature, however, you do need to issue a command from the keypad.
The only time you need to “clear” a relay state is when you have set a relay with the Infinite duration.
If you have a relay set to the Infinite duration, you can clear it (turn it off) one of three ways. One, you
can manually clear it by selecting a Relay Off button on the Relay State screen. Two, you can
automatically clear it by using another programmed alarm number that sets that relay with a duration
of at least one second. And three, you can clear it with a remapped preset command that activates a
macro from the keypad. To remap preset commands, see Command Map screen ( Control | Command
Map ) on page 54. An example of the second scenario would be Alarm 1 being used with a badge
reader to open a door and Alarm 2 being used with a PIR on the other side of the door to lock the door.
Alarm 1 would energize a relay with an infinite duration to open the electronic door lock and Alarm 2
would deenergize the relay with at least a one-second duration to close the electronic door lock.
If you select the Relay 1 on or the Relay 2 on button on the Alarms | Relay State page, and select OK,
then you are programming the dome to activate either or both of these relays each time the dome is
powered up. The relay action becomes a default.
Even though you can create an alarm block title and alarm titles that are up to 60 characters, 15
characters we suggest to reduce the size of the video obstruction.

Figure 40. Alarms menu
Summary screen ( Alarms | Summary )
You can view the status of alarms from the summary page. Alarms are presented in numerical order with
whatever titles have been assigned. Statuses are as follows:
•
•
On: Status shows as On if the contact for the alarm is in its active state. So, for a N/O (normally open)
contact that is closed, the status reports as on, because it is in its activated, abnormal state.
Off: Status shows as Off if the contact for the alarm is in its inactive state. So, for a N/C (normally
closed) contact that is closed, the status reports as off, because it is in its normal state.
Upon initial installation, all alarm contacts are N/O. Changing an alarm to N/C will not refresh the summary
page until after the contact has been tripped or the camera has been rebooted. All other changes will refresh
immediately.

You can program a variety of general camera features that control each dome. These general features include a
specific operation for the camera to execute when it is first powered up (Power-on), a specific operation for the
camera to execute when the keypad has been inactive for a duration of time (Resume), and speed settings for
panning, tilting, autopanning, and moving between presets.
Figure 46. Control menu
Command Map screen ( Control | Command Map )
The dome provides the ability to remap any preset or tour command coming in from a keypad to activate any of
the 127 presets, 16 tours, or 32 macro actions. This enables you to manually initiate any of the expanded
capabilities of the dome from keypad controllers with limited command capability. The command mapping
does not effect any of the internal command operations the dome performs, such as resume and alarm actions.
It only effects the actions the dome will perform when it receives a command from an external device (keypad
or alarm interface). An example of remapping is using a preset command from the keypad to run Macro 1. In
the command map programming, you would select the preset number you wish to use and remap that command
to activate Macro 1.
Note:
Most keypads have a limited number of preset numbers they can call, which will limit how many commands can be
remapped. If you have a GE KTD-405 keypad with firmware version 1.2.09 or later, then you can call up all 127 preset
numbers (1 through 127) directly from the keypad. If, however, you have a GE KTD-405 keypad with an earlier version of
firmware, then you can use the keypad to call up only the first 63 preset numbers (1 through 63). If you are using
presets 62 and 63 for your left and right autopan limits, then you have a total of 125 or 61 preset numbers that you can
call up from the keypad. To verify your keypad’s version, press and hold the mon key on the keypad, until the keypad
beeps, then press the >> key.

CAUTION
For all installations, heed these cautions:
•
DO NOT interrupt the reload/update purpose until it has completed. Don’t use the keypad, don’t
break the network connection, and don’t cycle the power to the dome.
•
When flashing software upgrades to the dome over a standard IP network via the dome's Ethernet
connection, ensure that the network is secured from unauthorized access. Like all Ethernet
connections, the dome's Ethernet connection has no security against unauthorized access. You
may consider connecting the Ethernet cable only when you are flashing the dome, unless you
have the dome connected to a secure, isolated network.
1. Create your TFTP server using the corresponding file from the Legend system CD.
Note:
Make sure that the TFTP server is in the same physical IP and subnet network as the dome. We do not
recommend to update the dome through a gateway. The extended setup that is required is not provided.
2. Copy the update file from the Legend system CD to the TFTP server.
3. Confirm or retype the TFTP server’s IP address into the TFTP host address box.
4. Confirm or retype the file name into the File name box.
5. Select Begin update.
6. At this point, ensure that the reload/update process is not interrupted. The system is not safe to interact
with until after the system is successfully rebooted. Wait until after you see the splash and color bar
screens on the monitor screen, and live video is again playing normally.
You may see a blank or gray screen for up to five minutes. Do nothing until you see live video again.

Interrelationship between the Exposure and Day/Night features
The Day/Night feature works only if the Exposure feature is set to Auto or Return to auto. Two conditions can
prevent the camera from switching between the color and monochrome modes according the Day/Night
setting. One, if you’ve overridden the Auto Exposure setting with manual commands from the keypad. Two, if
you’ve called a preset (or a command containing a preset) that is programmed to override the Auto Exposure
setting.
In the second scenario, the camera returns to the Auto Exposure setting after you leave the preset. In the first
scenario, you must issue a command to return to the Auto Exposure setting. Using the iris key on the keypad
manually adjusts the camera’s iris setting or shutter speed, overriding the Auto Exposure setting. You must
issue a pan or tilt command from the keypad to leave the manual override and return to the Auto Exposure
setting. While you remain in the manual override, the color and monochrome modes of the Day/Night setting
will not switch according to the changes in the lighting conditions.

First, reboot the camera with the keypad using the procedure in Rebooting the dome on page 63.
If that doesn’t work, then reset (cycle) the power to the dome by turning the power off then on.
Forget your passcode?
If you forget the passcodes for a dome, you will need to send the dome back to the factory so that it can be reset
by the factory with no passcodes.
Is the programming interface not opening?
Contact technical support. See Contacting technical support on page 67 for web, e-mail, fax, and phone
information.
Is the programming interface not closing?
Reset (cycle) the power to the dome by turning the power off then on.
Maintenance
Reloading or updating the software
There are two ways to reload or update the software in your dome. One way is using the Firmware Update
feature from the programming interface. The other way is using a web browser. The web browser method is
explained here. To use the Firmware Update feature, see Firmware Update screen ( System | Firmware
Update ) on page 61.
To reload or update software using the http method:
CAUTION
For all installations, heed these cautions:
•
DO NOT interrupt the reload/update purpose until it has completed. Don’t use the keypad, don’t
break the network connection, and don’t cycle the power to the dome.
•
When flashing software upgrades to the dome over a standard IP network via the dome's Ethernet
connection, ensure that the network is secured from unauthorized access. Like all Ethernet
connections, the dome's Ethernet connection has no security against unauthorized access. You
may consider connecting the Ethernet cable only when you are flashing the dome, unless you
have the dome connected to a secure, isolated network.
1. Make sure that the computer that you are using for the server has the same subnet address as the dome.
The default addresses are:

User Manual
•
•
IP for domes: 192.168.208.XXX, where XXX is the site number (or camera address) of the
dome.
Subnet mask for domes: 255.255.255.0
2. Copy the update file from the Legend system CD to your computer. It will usually be named in the
format of Legend.raw.gz with some variations.
3. Open Microsoft Internet Explorer.
4. Type your dome’s IP address into the address box in the form of
http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/update.htm.
5. Press Enter or click Go.
6. If this is the first time you are accessing the
web browser for the dome after it has rebooted,
you will be asked to log on to the dome.

Only installers have passcode
permission to update software.
You need to type in Installer with a
capital letter I.
Finally, you need to use the same
passcode as is used for accessing the
dome’s programming interface. Leave
the password box blank, if the Installer
passcode was not turned on for the
programming interface.
7. At the Legend web based firmware update
page, enter the name of the firmware file, if
known, or click the Browse button to locate
the file.
Figure 57. Legend web based firmware update page
8. If you are browsing for the file, once you
find it, click File | Open to populate the
filename entry on the previous page.
9. Click Send File.
10. At this point, ensure that the reload/update process is not interrupted. The unit is not safe to interact
with until after the system is successfully rebooted. Wait until after you see the splash and color bar
screens on the monitor screen, and live video is again showing normally.
You may see a blank or gray screen for up to five minutes. Do nothing until you see live video again.
Only after 10 minutes have elapsed without a successful reload/update can you try cycling power to
restart the dome.
67
After you have clicked Send File, the reload/update can continue processing in one of two ways:
•
•
In most cases, a notice will appear on the monitor screen saying that the update is in progress,
while another message appears on the computer screen in Internet Explorer saying that the
update is proceeding successfully.
In some cases, the camera may not have enough memory to process the reload/update files. In
which case, a camera memory low message is displayed. If you get this message, the camera
will automatically reset (reboot) itself and when it is again displaying live video, you will need
to go back to the address box in Internet Explorer and reselect the dome’s IP address with the
correct file extension, which should now appear beside the IP address. The reload/update
should process normally after selecting the update file this second time.
