Current firmware for the Philips dreamstation
(01-04-2018, 09:13 AM)Sleeprider Wrote: SleepOzzie, since this will affect many members, and it is information I need to pass along to Sleepyhead author Mark Watkins, your help in looking into this would be appreciated.

Hey Sleeprider,

Just got around to testing out the import into sleepyhead, which I haven't used in like 120 odd days! The import was successful and took all the data since the last input to now and in that time I've updated the firmware twice, so no issues with the firmware change and importing to Sleepyhead.

Thanks. Glad to hear the Sleepyhead program is not affected by this update.  Odd that Encore would not work without an update.    Dont-know

So, I feel like I know my answer, but figure I would ask.  My Dreamstation is on 1.0.6, but frankly, I am happy with it.  I don't have any lights that bother me, and it seems to function ok.  Aside from niceties, are there any critical improvements that would warrant an update (ie. better apnea detection, better overall performance, etc).  While I have no problem tweaking lots of devices, one responsible for my breathing feels a bit more.... risky, and if I don't see any real benefit, I would rather not (unless I had to).

No there's nothing you need in the update that will affect your treatment. In fact you run the risk of messing up your machine if anything goes wrong trying to update.
