What digital mixers have increased their channel count capabilities with firmware alone? I am not referring to the hardware necessary to add more preamps. The one I am aware of is the Avid SC48 it went from 48 channels to 64 channels with just a firmware update. Are there any other ones that come to mind?

Soundcraft Si Impact went from 32+4 stereo to 64+8 stereo with the V2 update...free of charge.  32x16 on the back and 2 card slots (64x64 & 64x32) for stage boxes or other I/O

Lots of desk for around $2500 MAP
I've used the Expression and Impact consoles a bunch and they are a good value, but I have always found the lack of keying/sidechaining and AMM absolutely astounding. I can't think of a digital mixer that doesn't have [at LEAST] those built-in. Surely a firmware upgrade would be all that is needed - I think doing that would put them in a unique spot due to the fairly high channel count (80 mix channels on the Impact).
