When you receive a new STP-HD300, one of the first things you should do is update its firmware to the latest version. Upon first starting the HD300, it should notify you that there is a new firmware version available after the Main Menu is displayed in Media Player/Standalone mode. You can update the firmware from that notification dialog or go to Settings -> System Update, then check for a new firmware version.


The latest release firmware as of this post is version "20100909 0".


Updating the firmware is also covered in the printed manual that comes with the HD300, or which can be downloaded:
SageTV_HD300_Manual.pdf (Right click & choose "Save Target As...")

See pages 10 and 11 for information about how to update the firmware via an internet download or as part of the Configuration Reset Procedure, which allows updating the firmware "From SageTV Server", "From Internet", or "From USB".

While using the HD300 as a Media Player (standalone mode), use the remote's number pad to enter the code 2382 ('beta') on the HD300's Settings -> System Update menu in order to tell it to look for the beta version. For help about how to update the firmware, see the HD300's manual (found in the box the unit came in or or it can be downloaded: SageTV_HD300_Manual.pdf; Right click & choose "Save Target As..."). See p. 10's "Installing a firmware update" or p. 11's "Configuration Reset Procedure", which now has a menu where you can choose to Reload Firmware.

Updating the HD300 firmware is also covered in this FAQ.

The above method is faster, but you can alternatively use that manual's "Configuration Reset Procedure" to load the firmware from the SageTV server or from a USB drive using these download links, remembering to rename the files to match the manual's instructions:

Submit any bugs you find to here please: http://sagetv.com/bugs.html
Forum posts about this firmware should be posted to the SageTV Beta Test Software Forum.



Changes for beta version 20110217-2 include the following:

Core changes:
  1. Updated system driver

Media Player (Standalone) UI changes:
  1. Added SageTV7 STV for testing; the default is still Cheetah. The SageTV7 STV can be selected in Setup-> Advanced Setup -> Advanced -> SageTV Application Package.

    To enable the option to load another STV:

    From the HD300's Main Menu, go to Settings -> System Information (or just use the Info command while on the Main Menu). Using the remote, enter the 4-digit '5309' code. If entered successfully, you will see a blue dot in the top left corner.

When using the STP-HD300 as a SageTV media extender, it is recommended that SageTV server v7.0 or newer be used.
