FS1-SE V1.75 Update

2/13/2014 we released version 1.75 for the FS1-SE.

This update provides better stability for signal monitoring.  This is a optional update.  If you meter is working well enough for you, don't update it.  If the signals you are testing cause the meter reading to fluctuate, this update may make the metering more stable.

Version 1.72 operating software for our FS1-SE

December 31, 2013 we released the final FS1-SE software update of 2013, our version 1.72.  This is a optional update with improvements to the MER / BER of the meter.  Optional means you don't need to update your meter.  If you use the meter only for alignments you don't need to update.  If you are using your meter for recording signal levels, noise levels, etc., then you should update to this latest software.  Our software is FREE to registered owners of our FS1-SE meter.

Registered owners can download this software here.

DO NOT use this software in our FS1 meters.  The FS1-SE is a totally different meter with a new and improved main board, tuner and software.  The FS1-SE software does not work in the FS1.

If you are using a clone meter, DO NOT use this (or any other software from us) in your clone meter.  All of the clone meters are copies of one of the first versions of our old FS1.  This software will not work in your clone meter and may damage your clone meter beyond repair.

What are clone meters?
Clone meters are the meters you see on eBay and other websites that look like our FS1 but do not have the First Strike name on them.  These are copies of our very early FS1.  DO NOT buy these old outdated clones when you can buy the latest, more advanced FS1-SE with support from First Strike Meters.

Version 1.70 operating software for the FS1-SE

December 2nd, 2013 we released a major software upgrade for the FS1-SE (Second Edition) satellite finder meter.

Version 1.70 includes several improvements including but not limited to:
  • Improved boot time
  • Improved Signal / Noise readings
  • Improved Signal Strength readings
The bug that prevented new parameters from being saved (sometimes) is now fixed.
The bug that showed Quality readings when no LNBF was connected is now fixed.

BER (Bit Error Rate) is now more stable.

This is a RECOMMENDED upgrade.  If you are a registered FS1-SE owner, you can download this upgrade for FREE from our FS1-SE software page.

Our DragDrop software makes this a easy upgrade from a USB drive with no interface software required.
