New firmware found message but fails?   

Postby jackie999 » Tue Aug 23, 2011 5:12 pm

I got the 'new firmware' message on my plus (I'm currently at 0.4.7.3)
When I accept the update I get the message "New firmware download failed due to incomplete firmware download. Please check your network connection and try again".
My network connection seems to be fine...is the server just overloaded? Do I have a problem or should I just wait a day or two?
Thanks

The online update for 1.02.21 & 1.05.04_B do not progress from 0% for some reason. So I'm using the online update system as just a notification to you to come to the site and look for the firmware :)

Just to be sure I'm doing this right - I've read that I'm to include the " wdtvlive2.bi2 " file (I'm running the WDTVplus). I downloaded the

1.05.04_V_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.5.0.0.zip file ..there is no wdtvlive2.bi2 file in it. Wiki doesn't mention the .bi2 file either so perhaps the file was necessary in earlier or ext3_boot version??


nm ...I see now I should get the _b version :oops:

You should've gotten the Live version. Simpler with better community support.

I wasn't aware I could run the 'live' version on my plus..also, my main use for the wdtv+ is netflix and I don't think the live supports it.
