AutoStar Controller Version
- Can someone tell me how I can tell what version Autostar Controllers
that I have. I have two; one is from a recently purchased ETX-125PE and
the other is from a 1999 ETX-90EC.

Since the current-for-the-last-6-years firmware will get
switched automagically to "download", the Updater doesn't

It's just the ancient version you're playing with (against)
that required the manual "switch to Download" action.
