Ahh, good point.  I did not realize 1.4.9 has "s1..." version.

However, the companion primary firmware (v1.1.0) does not support 8008.
Can I _just_ upgrade station firmware to 1.4.9?  My current primary firmware
is v0.3.0, which seems pretty outdated.

I looked at a few versions back and did not find any primary
firmware update for 8008 (should start with p4..., I suppose).  Is this
right?
