Global mediacenter update to 4.0

Global mediacenter update will be released in April, 10th. Mediacenters that currently run firmware 3.9 will be updated to firmware 4.0.

This update was already released for TVIP S-Box v.600/605, and can be accessed in Beta update type for the other models.

As user interfaces was greatly changed, it could take time to make familiar with it by end users and customer support. There is an option to delay this update. You can set up a special “3.9” update type over provisioning. If you require this, please, read instructions below.

If you are using Web-portal in “Whole system” mode, you probably do not notice serious changes (only in Mediacenter Settings design).

We recommend to study the new options in provisioning, such as Color Themes and Banner.

Setting for update delay

Set up provisioning options as shown below to force Mediacenters to use “3.9” update type (except v.600/605).

<update_types>
  <device id="s310" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux-qt" type="3.9" />   
  </device>
  <device id="s300" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux-qt" type="3.9" />   
  </device>
  <device id="s400" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux-qt" type="3.9" />   
  </device>
  <device id="s110" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux" type="3.9" />    
  </device>
  <device id="s410" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux-qt" type="3.9" />   
  </device>
  <device id="s500" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux-qt" type="3.9" />   
  </device>
    <device id="s501" force_type="3.9" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Old Release" os="linux-qt" type="3.9" />    
  </device>
</update_types>

When you are ready to update, return to “release” update type with these settings:

<update_types>
  <device id="s310" force_type="release" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Release" os="linux-qt" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux-qt" type="beta" />    
  </device>
  <device id="s300" force_type="release" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Release" os="linux-qt" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux-qt" type="beta" />     
  </device>
  <device id="s400" force_type="release" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Release" os="linux-qt" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux-qt" type="beta" />    
  </device>
  <device id="s110" force_type="release" force_os="linux">
    <type name="Release" os="linux" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux" type="beta" />      
  </device>
  <device id="s410" force_type="release" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Release" os="linux-qt" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux-qt" type="beta" />      
  </device>
  <device id="s500" force_type="release" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Release" os="linux-qt" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux-qt" type="beta" />      
  </device>
  <device id="s501" force_type="release" force_os="linux-qt">
    <type name="Release" os="linux-qt" type="release" /> 
    <type name="Beta" os="linux-qt" type="beta" />      
  </device>
</update_types>
