MyCloud - Don't Update Firmware!

Post by jstewar9 » Wed Oct 30, 2019 11:43 pm

If you are using a MyCloud 1st Gen NAS for the DVR service do not update to latest firmware, v04.05.00-342. The latest firmware did not allow me to install the DVR service.

Fortunately, I was able to download the v04.05.00-334 from this page and follow these instructions to downgrade my firmware. After downgrading I successfully installed the DVR service with an issue.

I'm running v04.05.00-342 without any issues. I always update manually so I have no idea if the firmware upgrade does something wonky that prevents the Windows installer from working correctly but the DVR engine itself runs just fine.
