FlexRadio announces the immediate availability of the Tuner Genius XL Firmware v1.1.16 and FlexRadio Tuner Genius Utility. Tuner Genius XL v1.1.16 is a general release intended for use with all Tuner Genius XL ATUs, that includes performance enhancements and bug fixes. We highly recommend upgrading to the Tuner Genius XL Firmware v1.1.16 as soon as possible.

NOTE: The Tuner Genius XL firmware is now fully integrated into the FlexRadio Tuner Genius Utility, eliminating the need for a separate firmware download. Please review the Tuner Genius XL v1.1.16 Release Notes before installing the new FlexRadio Tuner Genius Utility and firmware to ensure an optimal software installation experience.
