Auto Start

I have 2 - S9 units both with H5i humidifiers. The 1 I use is an Autoset and I recently purchased an Elite as a spare unit. I use a fixed CPAP setting so either works fine for me. However, a feature I like on the Autoset is Auto Start. In programming the Elite this feature is grayed out and set to off. It is a long reach to press the on button after getting in bed. I use a full face mask, heated climate line and a fix setting of 12.0.

Is there a way to update the Elite so that the Auto Start function will work? I have access to both Sleepyhead and Rescan. Maybe there is another setting that can not be used simultaneously or there is a firmware update for the older S9 Elite?

Thank you, Roger

Don't know if you have a DME but they would be the one to ask I think. I saw on another forum that the newer Resmed series 10 machines update over the air and the 9 series (such as yours) can only be updated at a service center. I don't know if this is accurate and a chat with a DME might provide an answer.
