I have the HW-N950 and it says the firware version is 1001.2 (I think) in the SmartThings app. When I check for updates in the app it spins for a bit and then tells me there are no updates available. When I check the support page for the soundbar, it says there is a new firmware update (1003, I think).
I'm having some connection issues and wanted to be sure I was on the latest firmware. How can I update my soundbar?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello! I found out the answer through trial and error!
After downloading the update, you need to unzip the file. Then copy ONLY the last file in all the folders (none of the actual folders themselves!!!) onto the USB drive. Turn off the Soundbar, then insert the USB drive into the bottom. As soon as you insert the drive, turn on the Soundbar with the remote. The update will start, and the screen will flash update!
Yes, as far as I can tell, all other functions work correctly. This is on an iPhone X.
I tried to do ths on my Pixel 2 XL, but all I get is "Couldn't download device controller". That's a whole different issue.
OK, I tried deleting and then reinstalling the SmartThings app. It did not make a difference.
Every time I tell it to update the firmware, it gets between 6% and 8% and then stops and says there is no new firmware available. How can I get the firmware updated?
