Manually updating your SoundTouch system

Before you begin

If your system is connected to your home network, it checks for software updates every time the system is used. If an update is available, it begins downloading automatically. If an update was fully downloaded, onscreen text prompts you when powering down the console that it is ready to be installed. Your system shuts 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 download to the console. Once the update is fully downloaded, an onscreen message will appear stating "An update is ready to be installed. Install now?" when the system is powered off.

  • Be 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
  • Upon completing the installation, 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 if a software update has been downloaded to the console. The onscreen 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 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.
