Just purchased the JTV-89 today. When upgrading the firmware, Line 6 Monkey will only upgrade to 1.82. How do I get 1.9?

Are you using the latest version of Monkey?

I have Monkey v1.62 (downloaded about 1 month ago). I am running Windows Vista on a laptop (high end gamer system). I had no problem (except not knowing about needing a 1/4" jack plugged in to the guitar) getting it to update to 1.82, but Monkey syas that is the latest version available.

UPDATE - I think I found the issue. According to the software download page, the 1.90 update is not compatible with Windows Vista. I downloaded the file and did a manual firmware update. Everything looks good right now. I didn't get a chance to play it, so I hope I am not like others that have no models after the upgrade.

You are correct about the problems with Vista, hopefully it all will be ok. Good luck, and enjoy playing!

i had a couple issues with mine on Tueday.

Ended up removing laptop from docking station and removing everything from a USB's

than I used a normal cat 5 cable I had laying around and it worked fine.
