just saw this post. i trust you got it sorted out by now. But, for anyone else wondering, you have to do a little Mikado dance to upgrade from 5.3 to 6.

First log in to vstabi.info where you can see all of your registered devices. next to the vbar you want to upgrade, there's an option button; clicking that will show several options. choose: 'add vcontrol version'

next, launch the v5.3 software on your mac/pc and connect your vbar just as you normally do with 5.3---NO VCONTROL SAT..just via USB; after you've done the above step, now v6 will show in the firmware upgrade options. Upgrade the firmware.

It's kinda scary, because after loading the firmware it seems like it fails because v6 disables the USB port (so, the computer can no longer see it).

no worries--now plug in the vcontrol sat and bind. now you're on vcontrol.

Sidenote: since USB is now disabled, all software updates (new apps, extensions, etc.) for that vbar unit are added through vbar control manager pc/mac software and the vcontrol radio.

if it ain't broke, break it.

All is correct except the last part. Updates are still done through the 5.3 software, you just have to do a recovery and then reload the latest 6.0. The manager is only for VControl and Neo....Ron
