Optic 6 / Minima6S

I have an Optic 6 w/ the Spectra 2.4Ghz AFHSS module on the back. I have read a lot about needing to update the firmware on the Optic 6 Sport in order for it to talk to a Minima receiver but I am not sure if I need to update the firmware on my Optic 6.

So, do I need to upgrade the firmware on my Optic 6 in order to use a Minima receiver and if so, what connector do I need to get in order to connect it to my PC? What other software do I need?

An Optic 6 with a Spectra Module fitted, will in most cases need the module to be updated to V3.01(0) using an HPP-22.
Please refer to:

Purchase HPP-22 device, download the free software here http://hitecrcd.co.kr/tester/hpp_22.htm
and read these
http://hitecrcd.com/files/UpgradeManual.pdf
http://hitecrcd.co.kr/tester/hpp-22_maulal.pdf

There are basically 3 objects that need to be updated:
1. Radio Firmware
2. Radio Module Firmware (on back of your radio)
3. Optima Receivers

My Radio is an Optic 6 (NOT a Optic 6 Sport.)

I bought the HPP-22 device but how do I connect it to my Optic 6 Transmitter? The supplied cable won't work. I only have a Trainer port and a power port.

Also, when I ran the PC program it doesn't list just the Optic 6 as an option.

Thoughts?

The Optic 6 does not have a data port and can not itself be updated.
It is only the Spectra Module that requires to be updated,
