Download the firmware here:

  • From the main page, select Downloads (the link is located in the middle of the upper title bar).
  • Then from the Downloads Center, select Broadcasting and then select Reflector.  You should now see a link for the most current version of the RTP STL and Reflector STL firmware.
  • Click on it and you will be prompted to sign into their site.  If you haven't already set up an account for their site, the username and password window that pops up has an option for registering for an account.

Do the following steps to install and run the reflector application.
