hey just had a quick question about the firmware on the ddj-s1. my ddj-s1 originally came with firmware 1.01 however when running serato itch, it asked me for a firwmware update which i agreed to. unfortunatly when the firmware upgrade completed it said that the firmware version was 1.0 which means it the serato servers downgarded me to 1.0 even tho i had pioneers 1.01. is there anyway i can grab the 1.01 firmware of u guys manully and update it myself. thanks, i had a chat on the serato forums, havent herd on when their servers will be updated.

Did you get the install CD when you bought your S1?

Mac or PC?

Driver or firmware?  There are no firmware updates, only drivers.

he ddj-s1 shipped with driver version 1.001 and te unit already had firmware version 1.01 out of the box. one day while using itch, itch requested a firmware upgrade was availible , which i completed. after the update the firmware version read 1.0 in the pioneer version dislay utility. 2 things could have happened. iether iv been downgraded by the serato servers accidently. or the 1.0 firwmware has got the wrong version/name tag on it. serato support did say that there r indeed two version numbers (1.0, 1.01) which pioneer to them. their servers for itch still only have the 1.0 version hence why im not getting any upgrade requests from itch even after upgrading to itch 2.0 and doing a fresh install.

If it came with 1.01 it could have been a factory change on a hardware part or something simple.  1.00 is what I've got on my machine and there are no updates available from Pioneer (which is where they'd come from, likely not Serato).  If it still works, I wouldn't worry.
