Mediasonic Homeworx HW180STB

Postby nLearningMode72 » December 10th, 2017, 8:23 pm

I bought the Mediasonic Homeworx HW180STB December 6, 2017. Also first time here today.

I have spent the last days going through the manual and running the box, so many questions but they will wait until later.

DO NOT update firmware without consulting us 1st. Otherwise, you may end up bricking the unit. ATTN: For firmware request, please provide a photo showing serial # UN-QUOTE

1. Which is the serial number? There are two numbers on the box.
Received December 8 2017
Scanned bar codes from box

2. From the unit
Mediasonic HW180STB System screen
Model: HW180STB
SW Version: Jun 8 2016-05:59:22-V11.3
HW Version: MLG-7802-11

Now, is there a new firmware for the HW180STB and how do I download it since there is no download on the page?

I bought my unit about the same time as you , i had 11.3 on mine and requested a update but its beta 11.5. no real difference to the 11.3 , i think the only thing they change was a on/ off for the timejfor military time . I couldnt fine any other differences in the 2 bins other then that.

if you send a email to the one posted in the UPDATE TUTORIAL at top of forum you will get a prompt reply, as I did.

its a learning curve by playing with the box, its a non detailed manual like most, just read the forum for answers, the experts are here for the answers your seeking.

Thanks for the info.

I am making notes while going through all the settings/remote. Also taking photos of the TV screens as going through the settings.

One note, I found I could have two USB drives plugged in.

I agree about the manual, so incomplete and lacking of details.

Again, thanks for the info about the firmware, v11.3 is also mine.
