Well, adding my own 2-cents’ worth today! I got in a week EARLY to see my aud-guy today - hallelujia! So I was able to get a bunch of stuff taken care of. First off, to my surprise, the AutoPhone was already ENABLED! I guess I have not had to use a phone (telecoil?) that triggered it yet, cuz I had NO idea it was even set for ON. Now that I know that, we’ll see if it’s ever triggered.
On top of that, I decided to have a dedicated phone program set up once again. I’d done this over a month ago, and could not hear any better in that program than default Program 1 on the phone - BUT! That was when I had too-loose Widex tulip domes on my aids. With the present Widex power domes (size L in left ear, M in right), I hear quite well on all phones. However, after my aud-guy set up a program with more GAIN in the left ear (and muted the volume in the right ear for that program), I found that I could hear even better on the phone! NOTE: My test call is always to call Anthem insurance. Y’never get a human being there, anyway, just hours of robo-recording - so it’s even better than dialing the weather station in terms of non-stop monotonic VOICE to test out your aids. OK, this is good. I’ll try using Program 3 for the phone now.
The minute my aud-guy paired up my aids to the Genie sw, a prompt popped up in the corner of his screen saying “Firmware upgrade now available” - so, to my delight, that was also done today! I’d already told my aud-guy that I first learned HERE about that upgrade, but it appears that he also gets notices from Oticon.
Right now, with both AutoPhone enabled and the firmware upgrade done, I have NO ISSUES! Now did I just jinx that? I’ll find out when I watch TV tonight, cuz I also had him remove my old TV program - apparently he’d thought I needed to have one dedicated to the streamer when in fact, the TV streamer automatically kicks in once your aids are paired with it.
YEAH. LIFE IS GOOD!
