New firmware 5.68 released

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  V5.65 was released in the spring, but withdrawn again due to a different issue.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 of newer firmware for these two types of controls.

V5.68 has been wrapped into an updated SI_Boot application which installs the firmware into the controls.  SI_Boot (V.2.11) is available from or from here.  For details on how to use the SI_Boot application, click here.


This is an important release and everybody should update
their controls to this version of the firmware.

[Update 2010-10-01: newer SI_Boot version]
