Just restart your Apple TV to get this update immediately. Let me know how it goes, and consider making a donation to help fund future enhancements such as the aforementioned.
The August update is due shortly. Please make sure you read this post or you could end up with a headache:
- A new PVR build is being deployed, therefore I recommend that you backup your MySQL database if you are using one.
- If you are using Dharma with a MySQL setup, make sure you have run ./disable_updates or your database will be upgraded to a pre-Eden version, meaning other clients will not be able to connect!
- If you wish to get the update, but retain Dharma, ./disable_updates and then you can manually fetch the script from SVN (when available) and run it under root.
Users have been warned.
After rebuilding a couple of machines over WDS, I noticed that clients were hanging with a TFTP timeout issue. I tried restarting the WDS service, but to no avail. The EventLog showed no problems with WDS, just informational events. The problem however is due to the fact that WDS and DNS are running side by side each other on the same machine. DNS can sometimes use a port needed by WDS, and so you can get a hanging bootup (especially if LAN > HDD in boot priority).
The solution was to disable the UDP Port Policy in Windows Server 2008 R2, which was done by changing the hex value of “UDPPortPolicy” from 1 to 0, which is located in: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WDSServer\Parameters.
Now what triggered this I do not know.
