    I might have mixed up MAC addresses with bridge MAC
    446755111445

    Based on reading some other firmware update requests, you may need some codes/addresses (I’m not sure which is which), but here is what I have:
    My hub has a MAC address of 44675520796f. It is running firmware 0018
    My timers are:
    44675520796f running firmware 0032
    44675520796f running firmware 0032
    4467551183f0 running firmware 0032
    446755116c0f running firmware 0032
    Also, they say “WIFI Nil”

    I still have not heard about a firmware update for my hub. Ryan indicated it needed to be “pushed”, but I wasn’t sure if you do that or I do that, and if so, how?

    I don’t understand what I need to do to “please have that to push it?” How do I initiate a firmware update?

    I FINALLY HAVE FOUND OUT THE PROBLEM! Thank you Ryan, than you Greg, but most of all thank you Curt (who I reached at the 800-488-6156 number. If you are having trouble programming multiple timers there are a few things that can help make it much easier to understand. First, you can’t use the general website… you need to go to the beta website (https://techsupport.orbitbhyve.com/#/) to program your timers, or use your phone App. Second, every time is a station is a zone. They are virtually the same thing, not, for example, 4 timer/stations in a zone. What that means is that you program each timer independently. Even if you can add “run times” and it looks like you can add “stations,” you can’t. If you try to manage 4 timers on one program it won’t work. Program then individually and it is fine. Next, according to Curt, who helped me outof my confusion, you cannot program start times/run times programs and have smart watering (to automatically create the rain delay from the weather report). If you want automatic rain delay, you program each device/timer/station to be smart watering. You can tell it which days to water, but you can’t tell it when to start or stop when it smart waters. It picks the time. So, you might get wet when you are mowing the lawn or picnicking. Odd. I’d prefer to smart water, but I only want that to happen between the hours of 6-8 am and 6-8 pm on odd days. Hopefully that will be in the next version.
    Hope this helps someone.

    Thanks Ryan, but when I click on that link, and then enter my email and password, the click “login” nothing happens. It’s as though the page is dead. I have tried using both google and safari to access it. Any advice?
