Version 2.2.23

*****
UPDATE: June 14, 2018 If your ULX-D system is on version 2.2.23, please update to version 2.2.24 because it fixes the issue of ULXD1/2 transmitters unexpectedly getting reset to factory default settings after any update or downgrade. Be aware that by updating from version 2.2.23, you will encounter the issue but should not encounter it once on version 2.2.24 and updating or downgrading from there.

UPDATE: May 24, 2018 ULX-D version 2.2.23 is no longer available on Shure Update Utility. ULXD1/2 transmitters updated from version 2.1.16 to 2.2.23 will unexpectedly be reset to factory default settings and previous settings will need to be recovered via IR sync.
