SPORTident.ca - Firmware
SPORTident has released version 5.68 for SPORTident controls BSF-7 & BSF-8 as a replacement to all prior firmware versions. All controls should be updated to this firmware. As many of you are aware, V5.59 had the stadium control bug which caused the batteries in stadium controls (Clear/Check/Start/Finish/Download) to be drained sooner under certain conditions. V5.65 was released in the spring, but withdrawn again due to a different issue. Unfortunately the download control and the printer control cannot yet be updated to version 5.68. I will update this page as soon as I get a timeline on the availability..
SPORTident in Germany announced that controls should not be upgraded to 5.65 for the moment. I had a conversation with the head of SPORTident, and here’s a summary: “SPORTident apologizes for this development; at a recent O-meet in Lisbon, Portugal, some errors were reported that are being investigated. We expect this to take some days. “5.59 was stable, except for the Stadium Control bug, so 5.65 was released in December. Now, three months later, these reports have been raised that need to be looked into. It is therefore advised to hold off upgrading from 5.59 until the matter..
