Update firmware HDHR-Tech_US

Post by 7danny » Wed Jan 15, 2020 4:18 pm

I have an old HDHR-TECH-US (actually model number is HDHR-PRO-US), same as original HDHR-US. It is currently running firmware 20130117. I have run hdhomerun_setup.exe and hdhomerun_config_gui.exe but the firmware has not updated.

Going to my.hdhomerun.com says no hdhomerun detected.

I can scan and watch channels using hdhomerun_config_gui.exe/VLC but Roku, Firestick, Windows App and Android app can not discover tuners. Which is why I need to update the firmware.

So how can I update the firmware?

My understanding is the TECH models won't support the app/dvr... I have even heard this stated about the modern tech models but not 100% sure on that.

As far as roku goes you will always be out of luck on that model as the roku requires http streaming... the other apps, it might be possible for SD to release a firmware compatible but generally I find most TECH's configured that one probably wouldn't work with the apps anyway as the tuners would never be available.

Thanks for the reply. I'm OK with that but would still like to know how to upgrade the firmware?

The HDHomeRun apps do not support TECH devices and definitely won't work with legacy TECH devices.

You can download the firmware for you model from https://www.silicondust.com/support/tech/ and then install with the HDHomeRun Config GUI's Upgrade tab.
