Upgrading HDHR-US firmware

Post by dlemmink »

I have an HDHR-US (Original DUAL) and a New Quattro.
The Quattro upgraded to ver 20200225 but the DUAL is stuck at 20170930.
When I click the firmware number, I get the Easy Installation Guide with Three Steps but no text...

typically one runs the setup from the latest full windows (and I believe mac) software package or updates using hdhomerun_config. Doing it manually with hdhomerun_config would require you to download the firmware (usually located on the linux page)

As mentioned. The HDHomerun software leads to a page with three steps and no text

HDHomerun_config discovers the device, but cannot upgrade the firmware.
All commands to that device fail with 'device not found'.

Use the instructions here for updating firmware from a computer: https://info.hdhomerun.com/info/update

That being said, if you are not having any issues right now, there is no pressing need to upgrade the firmware on the older unit.
