Så er der godt nyt til ejere af NEEO multi-fjernbetjeningen. Efter at have ventet nogle måneder er der den nye store firmwareopdatering klar. Den kommer senere i dag.
I et blog-oplæg på Planet Neeo fortæller Raphael Oberholzer, der er stifter og direktør fro Neeo, at de endeligt er klar med en stor opdatering, der bl.a. løser mange af de problemer folk har haft med bl.a. Sonos.
Versionen hedder 0.48.31, og er klar på din Neeo app.
En anden stor ting er at Neeo har opdateret, er deres HDMI-CEC support som bl.a. bruges til at kontrollere Sony PS4 og FireTV.
Neeo har lavet et indlæg der fortæller mere detaljeret om hvad opdateringen indeholder.
Opdateringen gør også, at vi endeligt kan lave vores 3. del af vores test af Neeo fjernbetjeningen.
I’m thrilled to share today’s news with you. Within the next hours, we will be releasing the biggest software update yet!
This release has been shaped by the community here on Planet NEEO, in fact, many of the new features and improvements – including the most central change – in this release is based on your feedback. Raphael went ahead and wrote about the main changes in separate blog posts, make sure to check these out:
There is way more than that though. Here some of the additional highlights:
Another load of features and fixes for Sonos is included, lists can now be of unlimited size, Spotify works again for those who had issues after the Sonos 8.3 update and Instant Favorites can now be set manually in the NEEO App.
An endless number of UI changes like redesigned pop-ups, a new power menu as well as update notifications on the NEEO Remote have been implemented.
HDMI CEC has not only been heavily improved, we also added new devices like the already mentioned FireTV, the Sony PS3 Slim and Super Slim as well as the Google Chromecast.
Huge low-level changes for a generally improved user experiencing like for example new RAM management on the NEEO Remote.
Below are the full release notes for the ones of you which want to know even more. Also check out the Known Issues for this release.
How to update your NEEO
Once the update is available it will show in your NEEO App on the top right with a red dot and an exclamation mark. You just need to follow the steps in the NEEO App and then on the NEEO Remote. We have prepared a little guide.
Be aware that it may take a few hours until your NEEO Brain shows the update, not all of them download the update at the same time, so give it some time. Little hint from me: Rebooting the NEEO Brain can speed up the download process 😉
