This is really frustrating and does NOT bode well... I am trying to retrieve the device packs pertinent to Mega4808/9 so that I can start on XPlainedPro 4909 without START (though I am guessing that START will need them, also).
I open AS7 and go to Tools > Device Pack Manager. Under ATMega_DFP, I choose one of the device packs. I click install. After downloading anywhere from 500 bytes to a few K, I get an error that says something like "Download Error - timed out". I repeat this for ANY other device pack and get similar behavior. Precise error message:
Error occurred while downloading
Network error: timeout
After this miserable behavior, I have downloaded 16Meg of CV. So, clearly, it is NOT my computer nor my internet connection.
What gives? Does the DevicePack server even work? Am I forced to go to CV?
