8-Series Firmware v8.70

Download v8.70

Known Issue: For a very small batch of units, occasionally upon power up, tracks that appear armed are not actually armed.

We have recently received a few reports of this issue. We are now able to duplicate the problem and are treating it with the utmost priority. Our initial findings suggest this is a problem that only affects a very small batch of units and is not directly related to recent firmware releases. We are currently testing a firmware fix for this and will release it as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. 

Note: To ensure best performance, always run the latest version of 8-Series firmware with the latest version of SD-Remote.
