The instructions below relate to upgrading the firmware on your H200 once you already have it working having previously followed the guidance given in the H200 Quick Start Guide to get your new H200 up and running via USB stick.
The following 3 steps provide the core summary of this process:
Step 1 - Download the new firmware image from the Amino support site and load it onto you USB stick as you originally did to get the STB working.
Note: The other 2 directories (ini_doc and jsdoc) should have the relevant documentation for the latest firmware available which may indicate new parameters which the H200 has had added since the previous firmware so always refer to the documentation that relates to the firmware version you are using (preferably the latest release).
Step 2 - Edit your text file (usually named as "amino_amigo_usb_upgrade.txt") to change the name of the firmware app file to match what you have downloaded. (for example: 25.2.2019R.zip)
Step 3 - Insert your USB stick with the new firmware and edited file and select a 'factory reset' of the STB via the Menu system.
Your STB should now reload the files from your USB and update the app to the version you have specified.
You should already have all of the files needed on your USB stick, as a reminder - here's the outline for that:
The “amino_amigo_usb_upgrade.txt” file details what files will be provisioned by USB:
- The Firmware APP image “--update_package=/udisk/<APP_FILENAME_ZIP>”
- The STBs INI configuration file: “--update_ini=/udisk/usb_boot.ini”
- The Channel Zapper JSON File: “--update_channel_list=/udisk/zapper_lineup.json”
The INI and JSON filename indicated in this article are an example, your file should specify for "The Firmware APP image" filename the filename of the firmware image you want to upgrade to (you will have downloaded this from the firmware download section of the Amino Enterprise support portal).
A USB image can update one or all of the above items. For example, a USB that upgrades the H200 and installs default INI and channel lineup results in a directory structure on the USB stick as shown below.
Note the usb_boot.ini and zapper_lineup.json filenames must be as shown.
In order to have a remote control button that accesses the menu system you can include in the usb_boot.ini file an entry such as this one which would make the blue button on the remote control bring up the settings menu:
