Good evening all,
I have a Slice media player (SMP) which I bought back in its kickstarter days. Due to apathy, it's been sitting in its box this whole time and now that I have a few days of leave from work, I thought it might be a good time to set it up for my daughters tv room.
Upon hooking it up to the tv I notice that (obviously) it has the 2015 OS and Kodi 14.1 software installed. I think the SLice software is dated 20150327. For me this is too far out of date, so I would like to update the unit to the latest OS and software. Further to that, I also bought a CM3 (and copper heat sinks) about a year back with a view to swapping out the original module. The time of reckoning has finally arrived.
I remember back in the day that the forum offered numerous posts as to how to update, install a heat sink etc etc. I suppose I always to it for granted that the forum would always be there. Now that the fiveninjas forum is down and with my being reliant on it, I have no idea how to update this unit. I am just an end user, but if I have to I don't mind getting my hands dirty. Been online pretty much the whole day trying to figure out how to do this, but really didn't get anywhere. Some of the posts I came across assume you have an understaning of coding and I am not sure if they apply specifically to Slice or if they are generic solutions.
Finally came across this website and, as it now seems to be the defacto Slice forum, I figure it would be the best place to find my answers.
So, can anybody here offer any insight as to what I need to do to upgrade/ update my SMP or at least direct me to where I can find that information. I tried the slicehowto.com page but some of the information there may as well have been written in greek.
If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated, but in your response please bear in mind that I am new too all this.
Have a good day.
