Is the 9.4 Roku SW Load it still being rolled out to RokuTV's?

Jump to solution

I own 2 RokuTVs: 43S525 (C112X) and 55R613 (7120X) (same as 55R615 and 55R617).

My 43S525 received the 9.4 SW update about a month after it's release in Sept 2020.

My 55R613 STILL has not received the 9.4 SW update. I've attempted to manually update periodically but still stuck on 9.3 build 4175-30.

Has the 9.4 SW updates stopped or delayed? If not, how can I get the update to upgrade my TV to 9.4?

Please note: I was working with "Roku Tanner" on a problem I was having back in 2019. He initiated an update for my TV with a SW load to test out the fix. I'm not absolutely sure, but I believe it was my current version: 9.3.0 build 4175-30.  Not sure if this was an official release OR if it's causing problems with updating newer "official" releases (such as what I'm having currently).
 
Oddly, when I go to the "Secret Screen" and choose "Update Software", it indicates a SW update is available BUT it's the same as my currently SW load. 
I DID NOT update (chose "Update later") as I did not want to cause any other issues.

Hey @RokuDanny 

I'm happy to report that my TV is now on SW 9.4.0 build 4200-30! I was able to successfully update to this load just a few minutes ago.

Funny thing, attempting the manual update process yesterday, I got notice that 9.4 was available. As such, I "updated" and it went through the whole process (install reboot...) BUT was unsuccessful when the TV restarted.  I went through the process a few times, all which indicated the 9.4 was available, without success.

I even pulled plug on TV on a few attempts hoping it would permit successful load.

It upgraded successfully only a few minutes ago.

Thanks for whatever you did.
