    Default Hardware versions

    I'm kinda a newbie, I guess. I've had a V1 for 5 years now, and have had a CM product since the original big, metal, had-a-VU-meter-for-strength-indicator, Escort.

    However, I've noticed there are references in posts to versions which are not firm/software revisions, like 1.7 and 1.8. I quickly surfed V1's site, and didn't see any reference to it, so it's likely referring to a major change.

    I have a V1 on software version 3.619, and I'm wondering which hardware version it is. Can someone loan me a clue? It's been "only" 5 years, so it's likely up-to-date, as it's not like Mr. Valentine has any planned obsolescence. Damn, he's a cool guy that way.

    After thinking about my old Escort DSP, I couldn't help but start looking for them on E-Bay.... More as a museum piece, albeit a functional one to a large degree. I fear the one I had may have been misplaced, permanently, 100% accidentally. I always considered it my backup in case anything ever happened to the V1.

    Go to V-1 site and put in your serial numer--it will tell you everything, what version--all of it

    More than that, I was curious as to what the difference between versions was. Otherwise, thanks for the suggestion, I hate it when I overlook the totally obvious. Sigh.

    My grandfather had the original "fuzzbuster" that only detected x band! It was about the size of a motorcycle battery.

    Hell, *I* had one of those, once. As I recall, it had one swtich, one lamp, and beeped periodically. It was essentially worthless...and huge.
