View Full Version : Anyway to update firmware without SB remote?

Hi all. I just acquired an SB1 unit without remote via the local Goodwill store. I have a universal remote with the JVC DVD codes and it works fine to let me configure the setup, however, there is no "brightness" key on the remote so I am unable to update the firmware. I'd probably be willing to shell out the $30 ($19 + $11 shipping) for a replacement remote if I knew whether this thing worked or not.

Anyone know if there is an alternate way to begin a fw update using a JVC compatible remote?

Thanks in advance for any help.

If interested I have a spare squeezebox remote to sell.

It probably depends on how old the SB1's firmware is, but you may be able to set this so that it auto updates.

Isn't this limited to SB2/3/T FW updates?

Dunno, couldn't find any documentation on it at all (even in the bugzilla enhancement request), and I don't have an SB1 to try it out.
