Is release 20190621 the new UI?

Post by GGRussell » Sun Jun 23, 2019 5:39 am

noticed there is a new official release 20190621. Is that the new UI? My system is working fine and I don't want to deal with issues. Reading the forum would seem 20190621 isn't ready.

The new UI is currently in beta - you can try it out by enabling "early access to new features" in the HDHomeRun app.

We are currently tracking one reported issue in the 20190621 release of the Android app.

So 20190621 official release is NOT the beta? When I go to my.hdhomerun.com, says I should update my firmware and Record engine. If those are beta, I do not want to update.

20190621 is the latest official release. It isn't a beta release.

The UI and the app are separate from each other. The UI contains the things you see and interact with, like the slice guide, list of recordings, Discover screen, and so on. The app does low-level behind the scenes stuff, like actually communicating with the HDHomeRun devices and playing video. Within the app you have the option of loading either the release UI or the beta UI.

Nick, is that the one in which the Android app says the HDHomeRun Tuner is unreachable? All my Android devices are showing that error message.

That is the issue Nick was referring to. The issue has now been resolved in the 20190625 update which is now available via Google Play.
