    Has anyone heard anything about the next firmware?

    Yes, I know 1.9x is what, 3 months old? Just to be clear, I’m not trying to belittle or take things for granted. I just want to spark a discussion.

    Not looking for wishlists. Looking for rumors and teasers. Not to put too fine a point on it :)

    Heard that there will be an Ilive 2.0 HARDWARE first.

    Really? Do you have any idea what this hardware 2.0 will entail? Having just bought a new iLive system a month ago, this is a little disappointing.

    Don’t worry jeff, I think it’s a long way off.
    I think they are working on other Projects.
    Like lower budget digital boards.

    hmm that’s a whole new topic, if you ran A&H what’d you make?

    Jim, you may have just bought yours, but I’ve owned an iLive since 2007.
    6 Years is quite an impressive product life for a digital product so it wouldn’t be surprising to see a new hardware revision announced at some point over the next 12 to 18 months.

    As v1.9 already required fixed format iLive’s to be upgraded to a new DSP I can’t see version 2 coming along at any time soon. A&H are working on the replacement for the board so I imagine that and the baby GLD will be their priorities for the moment.

    As Millst said the boards been around a long time now and I doubt A&H will want to put their brand in a position where half the fixed format boards run one firmware with a new DSP but the others that can afford or can’t justify it are running another. Quite frankly that would be a bit of a joke. Plus unlike changing the modular DSP, changing the fixed format iDR’s DSP would be a case off job which is going to scare the average school/church/end user so it would mean that the service centres would probably be on overtime!

    Only my opinion but I’d rather they worked on the replacement than kept squeezing more out of an old processor

    Just remember kids no matter how good your mixing is you can’t polish a turd…
