Hi I know this has probably been covered but could someone let me know on this thread please. I have two SB Touch (one of which is sealed), one SB Radio and SBS on a ReadyNas Duo.

All bar the sealed Touch are operating on latest firmware/updates. I have copies of the last 4 updates for SBS for Nas so that's covered so long as I keep the Nas. I was considering upgrading to an ultra so shall I get that update now and store it just in case?

What are and where can I get the latest firmware files for currently running Touch and Radio? And what do I do with the sealed Touch please. I have an active mysqueezebox.com account.

Cheers in advance for advice.

Matt

If it were me, and I had purchased Touch/Radio for "future / backup" use (which I will not do), I'd get them updated now the normal way. Why?
1. It's dead easy to do it the way it is currently designed (now they are up to date)
2. I'd want to make sure they function properly for a few days (rare warranty issue)

Thanks. Which files do I get please. My touch is 7.7.2 do I get this one:

http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/7.7.2/fab4_7.7.2_r9663.bin (33m)

What are the other fab4 files?

And for radio:

http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/7.7.2/baby_7.7.2_r9663.bin

I understand you can USB the file for touch but how would you update the radio?


Thanks.

Thanks.

There is a version file too . Radio is upgraded via the server in it's updates folder ( somehwere in cache i think ) you can manually place the fw + version file there ( or hack the version file ) then use the upgrade menu on the radio just as you normally do it.
There is possibly so that you already have the correct files in LMS update folder .

I would take down all files for 7.7.2 and 7.8 beta server and fw , mo 7.8 is better it's not that different but have some bug fixes ,due to the dev slowdown for making the UE software ,there is no overwhelming or experimental stuff there , it is no crasher like some other betas :)
