    After Lunch today, I came back to my Lynx and it said it had an update...

    [​IMG]


    Lot's of fixes from the Readme.

    It says it was released today.. 3/22/2012

    I'll update this link later with the contents of the readme. but things like improved battery life. 32gb sd card. and Radio Replay "Please Wait" issue. It seems much more faster with the touch...

    But the main question...
    I don't see a "LOVE" button....

    But here are the numbers from my settings...

    Application Version
    01.00.204

    Baseband Firmware Version
    9.5.3

    OS Version
    SBP_FRO_081_prod

    Kernel Version

    Awesome to see an update. Not surprised its all bug fixes. Wasnt expecting a love feature so soon, just glad they are trying to increase the devices performance first.

    Agreed and I second the awesome. I am still hopeful for the love option in a future update.

    I'm still looking forward to getting one. Hopefully this is a sign that another batch isn't too far behind.

    System Update

    Lynx Application Version 1.00.204
    Released 3/22/2012

    The Lynx Radio supports system updates sent over the Internet using a Wi-Fi® connection. When an update is available, Lynx will notify you that the update is ready to be installed. Tap OK and Lynx will restart and update the system software automatically.


    What's new in version 1.00.204
    • Radio Replay access continually showing "Please Wait" indefinitely is fixed
    • Playback of MP3 files on microSD showing "Preparing media" indefinitely is fixed
    • Improved stand-by battery life when Lynx is in a vehicle dock that is turned OFF
    • Supports access to songs on a full 32GB microSD Sandisk card
    • Radio Replays can now playback the last 15 min of content
    • Browsing Show Finder while listening to Radio Replays no longer distorts audio
    • Fixed dock type detection
    • Fixed screen wakeup from sleep state
    • Other miscellaneous performance improvements and minor bug fixes
    To manually check for system updates, be sure your Lynx is connected to the Internet via a Wi-Fi access point, and then tap HOME -> Settings-> About Lynx-> System update. If a system update is available, Lynx will let you know and ask if you would like to install it once the update has been downloaded. Caution – do not turn off Lynx, or remove power, during the update process.


    To confirm your Lynx software version, tap Settings-> About Lynx-> Device information. If your Lynx does not show the following, please perform the system update:
    • Application version – 1.00.204
    • Baseband firmware version – 9.8.0
    • OS version – SBP_FRO_81

    I give the company credit for improving the OS and receiver features. Fifteen minutes of radio replay playback is better than none. The love hasn't arrived, but battery improvement and eliminating some bugs gives them a B in my book. Like most I wait with baited breath on the next update and other positive developments.

    It looks like the Application Version went up along with the OS Version It is dated Apr 17th up from the previous March dated update. I could not find any help or description of what was new.

    Still no Love Button!

    Cool, probably some stablity/bug fixes.
    I've been doing lots of googling on how to get a different flavor of android on this thing, but major android devs don't seem interested.

    I was at:
    01.00.204
    9.8.0
    SBP_FRO_081
    2.6.32.9

    Right out of the box last Thursday.

    It just did the update. It ran pretty quickly and even kept playing music for part of it.


    Nice. :thumbsup:

    I'm not holding my breath for the Love button for a while. I'm guessing it won't be till after they are done with their legal squabble with the recording Nazis till we see that feature come back. I already miss it though.

  10. I wish they would fix it so that each time I put the radio in the home cradle that it would STOP automatically turning Bluetooth on.

    So I'm "working" at home tonight. I've got the SXM web player going through my desktop, while I work on my office laptop. It's kinda cool to glance over to what is playing on the other channels.

    But looking at the on line player, I see that they have the "Purchase Through" iTunes and Amazon.

    Since it doesn't seem likely that we're getting the Love button back soon, why can't they set up the Purchase Through" feature on the Lynx?

    30 new channels were added today: MLB Play-by-Play 910-939
    Has anyone been able to get these on the Lynx? I can get them on Internet radio & the iOS apps on my iPhone & iPad, but not on the Lynx. I've tried logging out & back in, but didn't work. I have also been in contact with support on SXM's FB page, but they don't know how either.

    Yeah. You do have to do k it first to establish the connection, but then you can pull it and walk around with it. You also need to be wi-fi not sat.

    Anyone getting Channel 802 Pink Floyd Channel on the Lynx?
    I'm also still getting Tim McGraw channel(816) & Enlighten(805) which were just removed from the SXM lineup.

    I spoke with the Lynx Support Team last night and they were unaware of this. They said they would probably have to develop a new firmware update to correct this.

    I have the PF channel on #43 but 802 is an invalid channel on my Lynx.
