Upgrading the firmware

Post by nickk »

Use the device webpage to upgrade the firmware:

Get to the device webpage via:

If you have more than one HDHomeRun device use xxxxxxxx.local where xxxxxxxx is the device ID of the HDHomeRun you wish to access/upgrade.

Install the Windows or Mac software to upgrade the firmware:

Windows installer: https://download.silicondust.com/hdhome ... s_beta.exe
Mac installer: https://download.silicondust.com/hdhome ... c_beta.dmg

Manual firmware upgrade:
Firmware download: https://download.silicondust.com/hdhome ... rmware.bin

Windows: Right-click the Start button, select Run, enter: c:\Program Files\Silicondust\HDHomeRun\hdhomerun_config_gui.exe
Click on the Device ID, switch to the firmware tab, select the downloaded file, and click Upgrade.

Command line:
hdhomerun_config <device id> upgrade <filename>

Other info:

The upgrade process will take approximately 30 seconds from when you initiate the upgrade to when the HDHomeRun is back up and running the new firmware.

Losing power during the upgrade will not cause a problem. You can unplug power at any time during the upgrade - the HDHomeRun will boot back up without issue.
