Is there a chance that new firmware will be released for the IR168 series of radios?  The company stopped supporting them over 2 years ago so there haven't been any updates for quite a while although Kaito is still selling them. Kaito must have a supply of old stock on hand to sell.  I emailed them to ask who was going to support the radios with firmware upgrades but they wouldn't answer. Here is the Amazon listing for the IR168 for anyone who is not familiar with it.  www.amazon.com/Kaito-Electronics-KAIR168-Wireless-Internet/dp/B001QGTGUW/

Yes, if you have a Synst IR808 or IR810 that's the same as the Kaito.  A lot of companies sold that model with different names.  Mine originally came from Canada and was called the SS-IR808EM.
