If you have one of the Xtreamer media streamers then you will probably want to update the firmware to the latest released version which just came out – version 18.104.22.168.
It is very easy to update the firmware, and so I decided to do some more videos.
The first video shows how to update the firmware.
The second video is a quick look at some of the things that come with the update.
It was simple to update and I had no problems at all. There are a couple of nice features now such as being able to change the fan speed, but with the impending release of Tranquil PCs silent cooler it may not really matter.
There are still a few annoying little bugs like the remote control not being as responsive as it should be, and the picture not displaying in the correct folder, but hey, its not a big deal.
Go get it now!
