Do I need a firmware update on first use?

Yes. Your Popcorn Hour player is delivered with the factory-installed firmware on it, which may be a month or two out of date. Firmware updates are released very frequently with support for new codecs, lots of new features and bugfixes, so the first thing you should do when you’re setting up your Popcorn Hour player for the first time is to check for a firmware update. This is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3…

You need an active Internet connection on your Popcorn Hour for the firmware update.

  1. Go to the setup screen
  2. choose Maintenance
  3. then select Check for firmware update

If there is a firmware update available, you will be prompted to accept the Terms and Conditions on-screen and the download and install process will take just a couple of minutes. It is important to leave the hardware well alone at this stage. The Popcorn Hour player will automatically restart when it has finished the firmware installation.
