Legend Processor Upgrade to CK5

Legend Processor Upgrade to CK5

Legend Processor Upgrade to CK5

I’m running a Merlin Legend Rel 7 in my home, rel 7. I want to get a spare processor card and have seen several low cost Merlin Magic CK5 processors on eBay. From what I read on this forum, I can mount the Magix processor in a Legend clam shell, then do a Restore to the CK5 processor with the backup from the Legend, with full compatibility and all station programming restored.

My question is will the 408 GS/LS ATL board still work (this supports the classic Merlin sets)?

Are there any issues with the other boards I’m using: 408 GS/LS-ID-MLX, 016 ETR, 016 T&R w/ Ring Gen, 012 T&R w/ Ring Gen, and 391C1 Power boards?

Thanks, Jim

NO ATL sets on Magix

While the Magix doesn't support ATL sets, it does support 4400 series phones. smile

I believe we can load R7.0 - V4.0 on a CKE5 processor in a Legend clamshell and the 408 ATL will still work ...

I think that the R7.0 - V14.2 (the latest Legend SW release before Magix 1.0) - was when the support for ATL ended ... and the 016RG and 016MLX mod support started.

I can check my old Legend docs if you don't have an R7.0 - V14.2 install manual.

Let me know.
