I've updated to SqueezeCenter and now I have to do an update on my SB3. But I don't have a remote anymore. Any way to do that without the remote?

If you have a universal remote, you can use JVC DVD mode to do the update.

There is a setting somewhere for "automatic firmware updates", so no need to press 'Brightness'. Don't remember where the setting is though...

(Hope that was vaguely helpful!)

Thanks guys. I knew about the JVC DVD thing. So thought about getting a Logitech 525 or something. But your post reminded me that we have a cheap "universal" lying about...that might just do the trick.

"automatic firmware updates" I'll do a search...thanks.

Well, you're in luck because the Duet SB Controller (SBC) also has infrared. Go to Settings > Advanced > Factory Test > Infrared and you have an emulated SB infrared remote. Scroll the wheel until you get to the Brightness button (lower right), point the remote at the SB, and press the center button. That should do it for you.

while you're at it, press and hold 'left' to get back into the SB3's settings and turn on auto-update.

Then you won't have to do it again.
