Default My Sirius Studio (Version 1.0.1.4886) with Firmware update

[img=left:f629949672]http://www.sirius.com/servlet/BlobServer?blobtable=ImageAsset&blobcol=urlimage&b lobkey=id&blobwhere=1132007358143[/img:f629949672]SIRIUS has released an update to the My Sirius Studio program. You can download the entire program or just update your current installation. You can do this by going to SIRIUS's S50 Support page or by using the Software Update feature in the MSS program. This upgrade should bring you to Version 1.0.1.4886.

UPDATE 11:20am: The firmware update should be available to you by updating to the newest version of MSS and then "Check for Updates" using MSS.

This new firmware increases the product's functionality based on customer feedback. Some of the new features include:
a. Schedule recordings on music channels now available
b. Nearly doubles the amount of memory allocated to My Sirius Channels
c. Increased platform stability.

We have confimed the following. Scheduled recordings are available for two hour periods of time. "LOVE" recordings of programming on the non-music channels works perfectly now. The timing of the fade of recorded songs has been improved. The media player can be paused and left unattended for a longer period of time than before without shutting down. The bug with freezing during docking and undocking has been addressed and is much more stable doing either.

Some questions... The menu has a new feature called "Reset Channels". What does this do? Some may try this without documentation, but others are afriad of losing some learned settings. How long can the media player remain paused before shutting down? Will there be updated documentation available for the new features available with a firmware update?

Thank you SIRIUS for updating the website to show the version number. This will help reduce the unnecessary downloads of an old version to see if one is available.

Why doesnt Sirius post the version number anywhere on the software support page? Why doesnt Sirius post what has changed/fixed in a perticular version on the software support page? Why doesnt Sirius allow you to upgrade to previous software updates?

Sirius if your reading this. Please listen to me. I hate installing stuff with no explanation of what has changed. Thanks.

I'd be happy if they could just post version numbers.

they dont even seem to know how to set the attribute correctly on the installer either. If you DL it, extract it form the zip and right click for attributes this one says the version number is 1.0.1.4950

the last "update" hat the original version number on the installer (although the about tab in the program itself had the updated number)

Hasn't made any changes other than the software version number that I can tell.

It didn't update the channel logos or the chick's voice - which are still missing from when they added the Canadian channels a while ago.

Really don't want to reformat and lose saved content just to get logos back - anyone know of another way?

Right, read that a while ago, was hoping an official patch might be available - not a user submitted cut/paste solution (no offense).

The firmware version is V1.0.10, but you should look for the version number of the My Sirius Studio and not the firmware. MSS is currenly at V1.0.1.4886.

Yep, already flashed the firmware and did a full reset, which probably isn't necessary. I only did the reset because I have done more playing with this thing than "saving" anything on it so it wasn't a big deal. What is interesting is that despite the fact that it's a reset, it still doesn't reset some things: FM Frequencies selected and Presets so far that I have noticed. The firmware update seems to have corrected the reporting of the memory usage. I had filled the S50 with about 26 hours or so of My Channels, about 100 loved songs, and a crapload of WMA/MP3 content, and before the update: 44% usage, after firmware update: 89% usage. Coincidence maybe that it "doubled" after the firmware update, but then again, probably not.

I also tried the new "Reset Channels" function. Seems to just force an Updating Channels screen and grab the latest info from the sats. So, if you somehow are "missing" channels like has been reported, I would try this.
