Upgrade firmware on NSA221

Post by Hermit » Tue Jun 24, 2014 6:28 pm

Hi

As many others I have a problems with pause/FF video streaming from NSA221 on Samsung Smart TV.
My 221 has firmware v4.20(UAC.0) . There is more recent _4.41(AFM.0)C0 vesion , but I can't install it. Installation failed with message "wrong file". Does this file incompatible with my HW?
And the most exiting - does it can to solve problem with Pause/FF ?

Thanks in advance

Indeed 'AFM' firmware won't fit on a machine which is currently running 'UAC' firmware. Somehow these codes are tagged to specific hardware. A quick google told me that your 221 is probably a '221 EE', whatever that may be. Here you can download 4.40(UAC.0). There is a red warning about this firmware. I can't read it, but maybe you can.

About your pause/ff, I have read that the problem is more the Samsung than your NAS. But that doesn't help much.

Thanks for clarification. For a while I install free s/w media server on my legacy PC and all works OK. The payback is one extra box.

Best Regards
