14.0.33 experiences on a Soundtouch 300

I was glad to have been able to update to the latest firmware using the info Mattius provided.

i seriously hope that Bose will support this way of updating for the more tech/tweakers among us as it worked great!

 

Some findings:

 

1. good to see http://speakerip/test.html gone, its fun but does not belong there

2. HDMi input port nw works better with the newly bought Nintendo Switch! previously I had problems like having to first turn on the nintendo Switch, then the soundbar or I would not have a picture on the TV Now it does not matter, so thats a fix!

3. Great to see new stuff like audio settings, volume setting. nice

 

remarks

After the update the speaker did not want to wake up anymore using the IR remote and pressing a preset. I fixed this by removing the speaker from the app, resetting to factory default and re-adding it.Perhaps drastic, but I like to start clean after an update anyway.

 

questions/idea's

1. Will you support/use http://speakerip/update.html for future manual updates?

2. Will you develop a full working webinterface? enhance the current http://speakerip/index.html where we can see some stats like current playing stream audio details like DD 5.0 or 2.0. Great to use that as a virtual display

3. will there be an insider program / beta program?

 

Thanks for the update, it is a step forward.

But please change the way updates are spread, and add the manual option / force update.

And keep on being more transparent, faster with info, keep the users in the loop and keep them informed about what they can expect and when. soon is a **bleep**ty answer 🙂

I might be wrong, but I believe there is a built in way to force an update. Read Page 38 of the downloadable owners manual from the Soundtouch 300 information webpage.

Believe hold the Soundtouch button, then press the CC button, snd it will manually look for updates.
