Somehow, I have missed your posts and just now saw your request for information. Most likely, there are not any updates on programming that would apply to your mount. I am not familiar with the LX 80, but the software driving it should be the same as one of the other mounts.
If you did need to do an update, the most likely method would be to download a program called the AutoStar Updater, which can run on Windows 7. With that program, you can download any update and save the file on your computer. You do not want to download it straight to your scope because any errors in the download can paralyze your mount. It would then have to be sent in to the factory to get it fixed, assuming that even they could fix it.
Most likely, any update in the program would only be minor and might not affect the operation of your scope at all. Unless you have a specific problem that really needs attention the best thing to do is to not do any updating at all.
I hope this helps and I am sorry you did not get a reply any sooner.
