Manually updating your SoundTouch system

Before you begin

If your system is connected to your home network, it will check for software updates every time the system is used. If an update is available, it will begin downloading automatically. If an update is downloaded fully, text on the screen will prompt you that it is ready to be installed when powering down the console. Your system will shut down automatically after installation. 

Updating the control console

When connected to a network with Internet access, the console will check for a software update each time it is used. If an update is available, the update will automatically be downloaded to the console. Once the update has fully downloaded, an on-screen message will appear stating “An update is ready to be installed. Install now?” when the system is turned off.

  • Make sure the bass module and wireless surround receivers are connected wirelessly to the console in order to receive any updates available for these components.
  • To begin the installation, select INSTALL.
  • When installation has completed, the system will turn off.

The Lifestyle 600 and 650 systems cannot be updated through the SoundTouch app. Using the remote, press SETUP then select “Software Update” to determine whether a software update has been downloaded to the console. The on-screen instruction will inform you if any automatic updates are ready for installation. 

Updating the bass module

To update the bass module, it must be connected to the console wirelessly. If the bass module was connected to the console using a 3.5-mm cable during the system update, the bass module will not be updated. 

Updating the remote control

If the control console has an update for the remote that is paired to it, the console will update the remote within 10 minutes. When the update occurs, the remote will not be usable for about 1 minute.
