I don,t think there is a way to install a new version other than buying a new machine with the latest version
Manufacturers do not tell us what is the updates in the new version, cannot be much improvement, otherwise it will be a new machine.
Something like the new ResMed AirSense 10 with some changes and modification on the S9
or PR system one 60 series with the heated tube humidifier option

Your DME should be able to do the update, if one is available. They should have the adapter to do the update.

RE: Latest Firmware For Respironics Remstar Auto A-Flex 560?
Just got mine about three weeks ago. FW 3.06.

I'm using the Philips Respironics SleepMapper software (downloaded from sleepmapper.com) on my PC. Using that program, if you look at the logs, on each connection/upload of SD data, there is this entry:

"INFO: New device settings are not required for user's device"

I'm wondering if it automatically checks for firmware and might download new firmware to the SD card, then install it after you reinsert the SD card. I have no idea, but it's a possibility.

BTW....I know they have an Android Sleepmapper app. I couldn't possibly recommend installing it due to the permissions required, which are completely ridiculous:

Version 1.4 can access:
Identity: find accounts on the device
Contacts: read your contacts
Location: approximate location (network-based)
Phone: directly call phone numbers, read call log
Camera: take pictures and videos
Device ID & call information: read phone status and identity
Other: receive data from Internet, full network access, view network connections, access Bluetooth settings, pair with Bluetooth devices, prevent device from sleeping, run at startup, control vibration

I agree they're horrendous, but they probably have fairly benign reasons.

Identity: Needed if they're going to log into their site (probably using Android Sync Adapters to do it in the background)
Contacts: They probably use it to get your identity (Your "Me" Contact card)
Location: It's not GPS, so they probably use your network providers to see what country you're in.
Phone: These are the crappy ones, You can dial a number by simply using a URI (like tel:1800303030) and no permissions are required.
Camera: It might use some barcode recognition.
Device ID & call Information: phone status and identity is needed for the Background Sync
Other: Mostly connecting to devices, vibrating with alerts, starting automatically and syncing off the internet.

I bet they've got barcode scanning code and they've just stolen the source for Zxing's Barcode Scanner (which in uses Contacts and Calling so you can create a barcode with contact details or call a contact received by barcode).

Still, I'd tell them to trim their permissions before I install, doubt they'll listen, 99% of people don't look at permissions, they just hit "Accept".

It doesn't really matter unless you're willing to go to extraordinary lengths. It's updatable if you have a special cable and the updater software to flash it, and the updated firmware, and don't mind possibly bricking your machine. It's about the same as flashing new firmware on a cell phone or router.

I've never heard of a DME actually doing it or of anybody sending a machine back for update, but if you manage to pull it off, let us know!
