My Gen 3 SMP is still on the original firmware that came with the unit, 1.08.17. Since it worked just fine for watching files from a USB drive I never felt the need to update… until now. Finally installed a wireless router so I’d like to have access to some of the latest apps.
Since the latest firmware seems to have a lot of issues I’d like to avoid it. Can I update to a prior version right away or do I need to update to the latest firmware and if breaks the WD roll back to a prior version? Then the question becomes which is the best prior version and where do I find the prior version firmware. A search is not coming up with prior versions.
My first priority is playing all video files from a USB drive, which my WD SMP does now, and second is accessing streaming content. Your advise is most appreciated.
