Update HDHomeRun Record to Version 20200803

Post by GaryDouglas »

I updated the Prime firmware to the latest version and step 2 was to update HDHomeRun Record to Version 20200803. From there I see the Easy Installation Guide, but there is nothing displayed other than the Set 1, 2 and 3 circles. Dead end, what next?

Where did you get that version number and why wouldn't you want the latest?

How you install the record engine depends on where the record engine is (NAS- can vary by brand, Windows, Mac, Android--take care not to delete data but it's engine is typically late as requires an app update)

I used the link in your email yesterday (https://silicondust.us1.list-manage.com ... d265284aeb) where it displays Your HDHomeRun Products with the box on the left that displays:
HDHomeRun PRIME 13233E08
Version 20200907
...and the box on the right displays (Don't know if this is as-is or to-be):
HDHomeRun RECORD
Version 20200803

I am using the Nvidia Shield and I have not seen an update for that on the Shield (yet).

If your record engine is on the shield, you need to wait for an android app update... my list of android updates did not have that date.

Typically an android update is on its own schedule and rarely just gets engine updates but sometimes even gets an update earlier than most (i.e. one earlier in the year was the first to create the mess of how recorded_files.json now works).

Nick had mentioned in another thread it will be a few days.

So the interface that updates the firmware on the Prime is not the same for updating HDHomeRun on the Shield, BUT it should be smart enough to advise you of that fact. I don’t have to do this very often so it’s easy to forget these subtleties.

BTW. when updating the firmware, it fails on me until I turn off my VPN on my laptop, which I also always forget about. Some reminders would be helpful...
