Western Digital WDC NAS OS 5

Post by nickk »

WDC recently released OS 5 for select NAS models. After upgrading you need to install the new HDHomeRun DVR app package for WDC OS 5.

Approach 1 - use the updated NAS Installer:

1) Download and install the latest HDHomeRun software:

2) Run HDHomeRun Setup, switch to the DVR tab, and click NAS Install.

3) Double click on the icon for your NAS and run through the process to install.

Approach 2 - download the app package for your NAS and install via the "Apps" tab of the NAS device webpage:

Did you download and install the v5 OS HDHomeRun NAS package afterwards? I literally just finished this upgrade (EX 4100), and that was the only manual action I needed to take; everything else was quite seamless here.

I have not updated my MyCloud devices to NAS OS5; I saw the last time I looked too many issues about it on the Internet.

However, I see my HDHomerun DVR that is running on my NAS is version 20200225. I am behind.

I don't want to break my system but imagine it would be good to update this version to the newest.

I believe that is 20210624.

Can someone tell me the link for what I should download and how to update it on my NAS. MyCloud only has an uninstall.

I downloaded hdhomerun_windows_20210720 but I am not sure that is what I want in terms of installing it on my NAS.

Everything else is current.

We should have packages for both OS 3 and OS 5: https://info.hdhomerun.com/info/dvr:nas:wd

The Windows NAS installer will detect the correct OS and install the right version.
