when I try check for updates it now tells me current version "devel.... -g8f72b7e" i.e. the full version string and then on next line: Latest Version: g8f72b7e
and asks if I would like to update now, selecting no cancels the screen and allows me to reselect check for updates. Checking for updates give back the version screen as above, every time.
Select YES from update screen response and I get a download progress screen with the file name "Slice-Slice.arm-6.0-devel-20150920114210-r2134" at that point it runs out of space in the display window, the remainder of the string is not displayed on the next line. Should it? I think the whole version number should be displayed as conformation it is different.
The download speed is 16-35kbps and the time remaining is 2-3 hours, a bit slow, I think! After the % progress at the top of the window "OpenELEC 2%" I cancelled the update. I was going to stop the update part-way through to test anyway. EDIT: using wired connection.
When I select Check for updates, I get nothing, even though the download did not complete, I think it should allow me to be told about the update as the install of the new version is not complete.
Navigating away from the OpenELEC menu back to the Main Icon selection strip and then going back to OpenELEC settings and Check for updates still behaves as if there is no update.
Reboot or power cycle restores the Check for updates function again, every time UNTIL I select YES and then reverts to no update shown as above.
I get no notification of available updates on reboot or power cycle: should I?
There was no pop-up window either having left it on and showing the system info hardware screen overnight (more than 6 hours)
I think that the "End User" support would be easier if the Check for updates function told you EVERY time, even after a cancelled (or failed or power lost) download, and only reset itself after the upgrade is completed. If it remains as is, it may cause confusion and a suggestion to "reboot" is not really fixing the problem.
Hope this helps, let me know when I can retest for you (including new build download and or OpenELEC soft reset).
