Re: NETGEAR R9000 NIGHTHAWK X10 Plex Version Update

Thank you for the update.

 

Sadly, you are too late, I ordered my Synology DS918+ and 16GB Ram 7/15 on Amazon Prime Day.

Re: NETGEAR R9000 NIGHTHAWK X10 Plex Version Update

1.16.0 Is not going to help that is a release from June 18 2019 and Plex made a change July 1 which breaks that ones DVR TV function Plex released 1.16.2 July 1 which fixes everything so 1.16.0 will not fix any thing I am at 1.16.0 and have tested it Live Tv/DVR still will not register your tuner This is the email that Plex sent out last month How long before I can get this fixed

 

Greetings, Plex Live TV & DVR user -

We're making major changes to how guide data is curated and delivered in Plex. Beginning on June 30, 2019 Plex will require Plex Media Server version 1.16.1 to maintain EPG data and overall Live TV & DVR functionality. Users that don't upgrade by the above date will begin losing guide data starting July 1, 2019.

Since part of this process involves matching your current channel lineup to a new channel lineup, as well as matching any recordings that you may already have scheduled, we strongly encourage all users to refresh their program guide after updating Plex Media Server and then review their channel lineup and scheduled recordings. If something is amiss, we recommend deleting and setting up the DVR from scratch. If you encounter problems, visit our forums.

Best -
The Plex Team

I just want to be able to use my Plex DVR/Live TV feature again, which is not available without the last Plex update. Until then, it looks like I am back to leaving my PC running 24/7 in order to record my shows.

That is great news about 1.16.2 ,why don't netgear let us test it
We are the ones that use it and would discover the problems more quickly, example would be that 1.16.0 was released by netgear after plex advised us plexpass users was told it needed to be at least 1.16.1

Hi everyone,

 

We received confirmation that Plex version 1.16.3 was released on the R9000 this morning.

You should then be able to update your version from the device's GUI.

 

Thank you.

Great! Just updated, but can't any difference from before. Any way to find out what are the new features enabled specifically for R9000?

The update definitely gave back all the plex pass benefits which was lost the 1st of july
If you do not have a Subscription you probably will not see any difference as you would not have access to live TV or DVR and more

That's good news for you - mine has not updated seven hours since checking the details...

Nothing specific for the R9000 (it's a "standard" PMS build) - the change is that certain features were not workable on the 1.16.0 build (not specific to the R9000 again).

Re: NETGEAR R9000 NIGHTHAWK X10 Plex Version Update

Hello,

 

Thank you for the update.  I am very glad that updates of this core-feature on the router (well, the core is routing of course, but you know what I mean) are again flowing in on a regular base.

 

I sincerely hope that this process will continue to work as fluent as it was the last month and that we can expect further updates in due time.

 

I appreciate the effort.

Re: NETGEAR R9000 NIGHTHAWK X10 Plex Version Update

@Oxmz any hints on the troubleshooting why the available update version is listed - with the automatic update ticked/enabled - but the update won't happen? Note: The R9000 in question does currently operate on a LB1120 on an average LTE link with private "public" IP address (like 100'000ands of mobile devices here).

 

Disabled the automatic update, and trying a manual update ... says downloading now.

Hi @schumaku ,

Any update on the status of the Plex update ?

Were you able to have it installed and running ?

Still facing the "downloading now" message ?

Had triggered the manual update which went flawless... Is the automatic one limited to some off-hours now?

The automatic one is usually happening during night time.

Could have been the issue there with the download queuing, waiting for the night to be installed ? Hard for me to confirm...

Happy to read that the update went through without issues though Smiley Happy
