Markus has just released new firmware updates for both the original OSSC, as well as the Pro. As with all original OSSC firmware updates going forward, you’ll either need hardware revision 1.8, or you’d need to perform a mod for it to work. OSSC Pro firmware updates are very easy though – I showed it at about the two-minute mark in the OSSC Pro livestream I did below.

I want to make sure I’m completely clear about my stance on the mod required for the original OSSC to continue getting firmware updates: I think it’s amazing Markus is still supporting this product all these years later! He could have chosen to just stop making firmware updates, but instead, he realized he could unlock some more potential with an updated board revision and a mod to the originals. There’s always someone who’ll get annoyed with free things, but anyone with common sense will love that Markus did this for us. Also, respectfully, you probably won’t need to update past the v0.x firmware anyway – The original OSSC is already a mature product that works GREAT. So just check out the new features and decide if they might apply to your setup. And if not, just keep using the already-awesome OSSC 🙂
