How long does it take to update Firmware ??

Hadi Choucair Oct 30, 2012 08:04PM GST

I have downloaded the Install.img from your website and I followed the Instructions online to install the Firm Ware. The HMC Premium is turned on with the Title Screen "MERLIN add a little magic to your life" for over Two hours now.

How long should I wait until I know that there is a problem and if there is a problem what should I do?

Installation takes about 5-10 minutes only. While installing there should be a display on the TV about the progress of the installation. If the media player hangs while installing restart the installation process, if still having problem download the firmware again and use the new download to install firmware.

Make sure that the flash drive that you are using has no other files but the firmware update file only. Do format the flash drive as well before using it to update the firmware of your media player.

Now, since this is the status of your device, to update the firmware, please follow the procedure below.

First your machine must be turned off, second, plug in the flash with the firmware update file, then press and hold the power button which is located on the back of the device for like 5 to 10 seconds. By doing this, you will initialize the firmware update of your device.
