    So somehow I didn't turn off the "download updates automatically" option, (I swear at one point it was though...) and now I have the constant "An update is available" nag message everytime I want to play a game. I can choose to ignore so it's not THAT big of a deal.

    The odd thing is, nowhere in the system menu is a way to tell what fw version i'm currently on. It seems to be basically blocked out by the system update message, rather than showing me the current OS ver#.

    Anyone know how to identify the system fw # with this scenario?

    Why? you are either on 2.0 or 1.0. You have a 100% chance of being on 2.0

    Interesting. Right, I was pretty sure i'm on 2.0 and it's nagging for the 2.1 update.

    I'm only using my ATT router so I can't DNS block the update website at the moment. Thanks Mr. Wizard for the screenshot pic. I will check my Switch later today.
