RE: OSCAR v1.3.0 is released
I do not currently use OSCAR but would like to. I have a windows 10 PC and would appreciate an SD card reader recommendation. One that has a USB connector and can be connected full time to the PC.

RE: OSCAR v1.3.0 is released
Just about any SD card reader you find on Amazon should work. I have a Ugreen multi card reader and it has a 12" long USB cable on it.
Just make sure you are getting the USB Connector that matches what your computer has (USB-A or USB-C).

RE: OSCAR v1.3.0 is released
Hi, I'm Shaun. I am brand new to therapy (one horrible week today) and am determined it will work. I will be among the success stories. I think this week will be better as I received a new mask in the mail today after discovering for sure that I am a combination breather. The sores on the nose are another issue, ha.

I am excited for the opportunity to use Oscar to help me understand and manage my therapy. I am using a ResMed 11 machine and see the support for it is new in the 1.3.0 version. When I click on the download buttons I am brought to a page that tells me it is version 1.2.0. Am I using an incorrect link, or is that the file I need?

Thank you for any help and for this in general.

No, it should not say 1.2.0

There are many different OS versions on the DL page, which one are you talking about.

Shaun, (and anyone else) make sure you're downloading OSCAR from the official download page at:


There's been a few reports over the past year that some folks had issues when trying to download OSCAR (and other software we host) from a non-official page, or some type of popup ad.  Never been able to find out exact web addresses for those fake sites, but given the fact that at least 3 people have reported such things, I'm pretty convinced now that there's some fake download sites out there.  These isolated instances may be due to ad-serving browser extensions that some have inadvertently installed.

Please note also that although the official OSCAR download page is on SleepFiles.com, the installation files themselves are hosted on ApneaBoard.com

I'll add that anything downloaded from the official site is safe.

RE: OSCAR v1.3.0 is released
so...if I download this from the above link...will it replace the old version? will I have to do anything to synch up my machine data? etc? Or is it just a matter of downloading the new version and not having to do anything further?
