When should we expect a firmware update for the PLEX server?

Re: XR700 Plex update

Unfortunately that's not something I can tell you as a member of the Netduma team, we don't have any input on the NETGEAR features like the USB functionalities. There is new firmware in the works and we're nearing it's release, but unfortunately I can't confirm whether there will be any upgrades/updates to Plex.

While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

Nighthawk Pro Gaming Routers - NETGEAR Communities

Gaming routers have their own DumaOS operating system that is nothing like the one on Netgear's standard routers.

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

Check for various troubleshooting tips.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.

Thank you for the move request
This is a recurring issue over the years with no obvious path to even contact Netgear
For the required update unfortunately

I don't now where you tried before, but as long as you to ask in the right place the path for support for devices with DumaOS, is usually short and rapid.

 

The DumaOS team has no reason to look out for every message posted in the wrong place. There are just too many messages to keep up.

 

Post in this section and you rarely have to wait long. Of course, lobbing in a request late on Friday, just before the weekend, isn't the best timing if you want instant replies.

Re: My Netgear Nightawk XR700 requires an update to Plex Server version for live tv

I'd recommend making a ticket with Netgear directly https://my.netgear.com/support/contact.aspx meanwhile I'll see if we can ask someone at Netgear to see if they can get this sorted

Gary,

I am having the same issue.  I take it this is a NetGear issue and not something Plex should be fixing?

Re: My Netgear Nightawk XR700 requires an update to Plex Server version for live tv

Netgear does the Plex updates through the firmware update process.

there is no other known  way to get it updated unless Netgear makes it available.

It has been well over a year since the last plex update.

please try to get a ticket with netgear.

latest from Netgear on September 24, 2022:

Hi Gary,

I hope you are doing well. This is to give you an update about your concern. I just would like to inform you that we have already contacted the Engineering Team for an update. They mentioned that there is no fixed time for the PLEX update to arrive.

Re: My Netgear Nightawk XR700 requires an update to Plex Server version for live tv

Since there is no ETA, we cannot provide an exact date for the new firmware. Hence, we suggest to close the case for the mean time and you will automatically receive updates if there is a new firmware if you're subscribed to receive updates from Netgear
