I have ordered the Touch and wanted to update my
SW to the latest version to be ready, once Touch is
arriving (last info: 3rd. November)
I installed 7.4.1 on my Vista Computer.
Squeezebox classic updated easy - Controller of Duett not!
Controller tried endless loading of new version.
I installed then 7.4.2 and hoped issue would be fixed for the
controller. But when checking the controller (Advanced / About)
it still says: Version: 7.3 r6038.
I did all recommendations like battery remove, Factory reset, ...
Now the loading of new version for controller is gone but
I still have the Version 7.3 r6038 on the controller
Manual Software update shows no option anymore to update controller
Any Idea how to fix this?
How to update the controller?

Thx

Michael

Have you waited a while or restarted squeezeboxserver ?

It fetches the fw from internet otherwise read the wiki on how to load fw with an SD card (slot above the battery)

fw here http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/

did you go directly from 7.3 to 7.4.2

I found this tread:

There is nofw in the 7.4.2 directory , and squeezboxserver is looking just there for it :-)

so use the 7.4.1 firmware for the controller either by using the SD card to install it the controller,or install squeezeboxserver 7.4.1

I tried this.. no success with Jive 7.4.1 - then I downloaded the Jive 7.5.0 version and copied it to the SD card. This time the update was sucessful.
This is an amzing version - Guys thx for the advices !!

Sorry if this is disappointing, but there is no way that the Touch is arriving Nov 3. The announced release is December, and from the current state of the software and firmware there is no way it is shipping next week.

I think Jan 3 would be optimistic. No insider info, just a hunch.
