Unfortunately it is only available to those who are certified installers/dealers. Nuvo tries to protect those that sell it and does not offer anyway to program it on your own (Unlike Russound that can be done through a keypad by anyone).

I wish I had a better answer but you will have to find a dealer/installer to get you a copy of the software.

Nuvo Essentia won't power up

First, try unplugging all of the sound system and plugging the amplifier into an outlet on a circuit that was not changed by the electrical work. Also, plug an outlet tester into the outlet you were using for the amplifier to make sure it is correctly wired. If one outlet in a system has hot and neutral reversed and others don't, this could cause problems with some designs.

If you are lucky, dirty power from sparking inside the circuit breaker crashed the control circuitry in the amp, and it just needs a hard reset (power disconnect/reconnect) to be made functional again. In the worst case, something got fried and you'll have to use instruments to track it down.

I highly recomend you this freeware software since i'm pretty sure it can get you most of the drivers. However, in order for this tool to find the drivers you're looking for, you have to run it in the computer you need the drivers for.

if you can't get online with the computer, go to and download the network drivers, get online, download the tool (first link), run it and download your drivers.

if you still can't get your drivers, reply this message telling me the problems you had and i will tell you how to make the windows vista drivers work with windows 7.

We have a Nuvo Essentia Six-Source, Six-Zone system. It plays the iPod fine, but the control pad says 'No iPod Detected'. This means I have to control the iPod from the unit itself, rather than being...

I had a few systems that did this but once I performed the latest firmware update it fixed everything.

If the combus on the ipod gets shorted then it will also do this. You have to disconnect the Cat-5 cable from the dock, unhook the ipod, reconnect the cat-5, then reconnect the ipod.

I would contact your installer and have him update the system for you, failing that re-do your connections on the dock. If that does not work you may have a deformed connector on the ipod that shorts the combus (had that once on a Russound system). Or a defective dock

Hope this helps,

You may have a pair of the cat-5 wires in the incorrect order which is causing a combus fault. Check all your cat-5 connections, ensure they are T568a (GS/G/OS/B/BS/O/BrS/Br).

Let me know if that checks out and we will continue trouble shooting.

Serial codes for nuvo simplese

I asked Nuvo about this and they said that the RS232 port was never setup for control, it is only to be used for programming when they are initially setup by Nuvo.

I have codes for the Essentia and Grand Concerto that I have written but non for the simplease as Nuvo said it cannot be controlled.

Clock adjustment option not there

With the keypads go to menu, then setup, then zone settings, then display settings then time display. Will have to go to each zone to do this. The installer could have asked for your preference. Some people prefer it, some don't.
