After updating my Maestro to the latest version yesterday, I no longer see the WiFi or Radio Chooser screens at boot up.

I have two radios on my LAN and when the Maestro boots it automatically goes to my 6700 which the Maestro updated to 1.9.13. The 6300 is still at 1.9.9. I haven't had time to manually update it to see if anything changes.

Anyone else see this?

How did you switch off your Maestro? Short press or long press power ON/OFF button? Press long till a split screnn came up

First I tried the long press and then tried the short press. Neither worked.

Let's see:

Long button press for power off,

Short button press for power off,

WiFi enabled, Ethernet cable enabled

WiFi disabled, Ethernet cable enabled

WiFi enabled, Ethernet cable off

Still see 1.9.9.20, 1.9.9.19, 1.8.4.18 1.7.32.15 but no 1.9.13.anyting

Radio and computer updated correctly.

Maestro is now unusable.  Is the Maestro update service running?  Anybody used it today?  Flexradio.com for downloads is OK.

The Maestro is starting up and connecting to last known radio. To get to the WiFi or radio chooser, press Menu, Network, then WiFi Settings.

I do not know how it would behave when both radios are on the network with same version software. My 6500 is out on loan and I can try that theory when I get it back (on the 6700 now)

I am a new Maestro user but in the little time I've spent with it, 1.9.9 always started up with the Network chooser, then the Radio chooser, where both radios were listed and I could choose either. But again, my suggestion would be to permit changing radios on the fly.

See how it works when you upgrade the second radio to 1.9.13

And there's the rub. I'll have to do it manually.

Turn off the radio running 1.9.13 and turn on the radio running 1.9.9. Boot Maestro it should then show the 1.9.9 radio The Maestro should show the radio in radio chooser and have an icon next to it indicating the radio will need a firmware upgrade. You can then upgrade it.
