Localized HP 1.3-R1 release now available?

Forum member and blog reader Wonko is reporting that his German MediaSmart Server has recently downloaded and installed the new HPMSS-1.3-R1 Software Update that English systems received a couple of weeks ago.

We don’t expect anything different in this release, but are our French and Spanish readers also seeing the update? And are you seeing any issues similar to the ones a few forum members have encountered?

1.3 R1 French update has been available since the release of the US update one week ago or so I guess. Well it’s running on my MSS for a week now. I had the date changed back to 1970 rebooted the server and it was OK… :)

Kind regards.

I just checked my Mediasmart and it looks like the last Hp update is dated 22/01/2009 and is version 1.2.1.
When I connect to the HP update server, I get a massage that my system is up to date. I can’t find any 1.3 software release.
I’d like to know how to get hold of this 1.3 release.

Hi Claude,

That date is the last time the server checked for updates, it’s not the date of the software version. This is something that has always bugged me. :)

Make sure you haven’t changed the locale of your server, and post on the forum if you’d like some further help.

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your reply.
Good to know abot the relationship between date and software version.
I have not chnaged anything on the server. In fact Most of the time I ignore it. It is sitting uder my desk And I almost forget it. It does its job qietly and nicely. But what do you mean about the locale of your server?
Thanks again
PS (I forgot to mention that I have a french version)
