Hello everybody,
we are proud to launch today and now the very last version of HarmonyPack, the v1.4.
This is the result of several days of testing, emails, posts.

Thanks to all Testers group, and specially to users: evr , Keltek, George.

MsHarmonyPack is compossed of:
- Custom Package (lgmenu) v108
- PipeManagement (PM) v3.7

The update can be done in two ways: (Choose among any of the two options below).
- Method 1: Reinstalling firmware from scratch. (With the trick of holding reset button while powering on, etc.)
- Method 2: Easily entering numeric code 987.

Method 1.
The URL of the new firmware and custom package is:
Download the file, unzip it, place two files in the usb key, and proceed like previous release firmware.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/684543/varios/ms450h/Firmwares/MSHarmonyPackv1.4/MSHarmonyPackv1_4a_Jan2012.zip

Method 2.
Only if you are user of previous version of HarmonyPack
If you use numeric code 987, at the start you will check volume bar to move.
This is to indicate a new version has been found, this is not progress bar.
Wait some minutes, and then restart.

At the end, you will have to check if you have right versions of the package and pm.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/684543/varios/ms450h/Firmwares/MSHarmonyPackv1.4/Versiones.jpg

Release Notes
-------------
Script Custom1:931 Delete bookmark.db

HI !

I have updated using the method number 1 .
Putting the two files in a usb memory stick.
The LG displayed "UPGRAD" , the lighh on my memory stick was blinking, then at the end the LG displayed OK and reboot.
I have restored the configuration from a file in may computer after reconfiguring the network parameters.
All seem OK to me, but I have still V107 in the upper right corner of the control pannel !
How can I check that I have the new release ?
Many Thanks

Having the new package.tar.gz file in the usb, should be enought.
just restart lg having the usb connected,
automatically the install should be done.

If not, enter using telnet command and delete the root/custom/etc/version file.

then repeat again the process. good luck.

It was vot succesfull from the usb as you say. So I decide to copy the package.tar.gz to a tmp directory, then gzip -d , then tar xvf, and performupdate.sh
It seems ok now.
But I don't know if the MS400_101119_0128.img was perform .

Mensaje  san_gin el Lun Mar 05, 2012 1:47 pm

Hi,
I installed new firmware from HarmonyPack 1.4. I think everything is OK because when i restart my
LG MS450H is immediately going to TV channels. I have a problem to install Custom-KV-v108-IV.tar.gz.
I can't connect through web server . I have package.tar.gz file on my usb stick and then i switch off and switch on LG450H. Usb is blinking few times but there is not restarting after 10 min.
With filezilla i check and root/custom/etc/version don’t exist.
Trough telnet I have this:
root@Venus:~# /usr/local/etc/starthddservices.sh
swapon: /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2: Device or resource busy
/usr/local/etc/starthddservice.sh: line 107: ./performUpdate.sh not found
Can anyone help me?

Hello san_gin,

it should go smoothly;
on any event, try to delete any existing file /root/etc/version
and then try again.

if not,
a couple of message before, there are some instructions.
basically:
copy the package.tar.gz to a tmp directory, then gzip -d , then tar xvf, and performupdate.sh


good luck

After last line cursor is blinking forever and i need reset LGMS450H.

I am using Win7 and telnet.

What else can i Try?

Thanks and best regards

PS: I found that during first installation Custom-KV-v108-IV.tar.gz file is copied into /tmp/hdd/volumes/HDD1/lg/installation
directory and 4 untar files are in /tmp/hdd/volumes/HDD1/lg/installation/Custom-KV-v108-IV directory.

EDIT 3
This is part of performUpdate.sh

# Unpack archives

Is this mean that files full.tar ,etc.tar,var.tar must be on /tmp/hdd/root/custom directory?

Hope someone or Keltek could help you better.

It is strange, in one point, it says that it cannot create custom folder; you have hard disk internal right?


Try again the normal install (custom in usb and reboot);
but this time do initialli a full delete of cultom folder rm -R /root/custom
good luck Smile

Sorry for late reply. You can use dos2unix/unix2dos utilities which are included on the box (in busybox).
This is very frequent issue with bash script editing - line end definition.

Hello from France;

I would like to thank all the great contributors for this project (Vic1972, Keltek,testers, ... )
I've been reading this forum - and the french one as well of course :-) and been using this custom software for about 1 and half year now.
I real great pleasure to access records using Web base or SSH, being able to rename, schedule them, ....

A very nice piece of software.

The concept of the MS4x0 is excellent: getting a central system being able record TV and share this though the other device in the house.
It's a pity that LG has not followed by supporting their baby.

Luckily, you are there to enhance the product.

I've upgraded to latest version as well. I did also have to proceed manually for the custom binary.
Upgrade seems OK now.
Again, many many thanks.
Patrick

MsHarmonyPack v1.4 January-2012 Empty Problem to update FW to V1.4

Mensaje  giuseppe el Dom Abr 15, 2012 6:40 pm

Hello to everybody, I'm Giuseppe from Italy. I'm not able to update my MS400 to the last version. As Vic correctly suggested me, I past my questions here and I hope it's the right place.
First af all, some answers to Vic:

1) my LG is an Australian one MS409D (500GB HDD, without scart connector), so I think it is a standard MS400. In Italy this equipment has not been sold.

2) the FW installed is 20091209C and after start up, it comes directly on DTV and doesn't stay in menu.

3) is there a way to force update via lan cable (I mean via telnet, this connection works well)?

Said this, below you can see the problem I have.

Many thanks to ALL the group for the help you could give me.

Ciao Very Happy


Dear Vic, I'm Giuseppe ( Italian), I'm new of this forum, and first af all many thanks for your great work on MS400.
I' m writing you because I'm not able to upgrade my MS400 with the new FW and harmony pack V1.4. I tried with other old versions but the result is always the same.
In the menu of my ms400 I see FW vers. 20091209C but it is impossible to update it.
I followed the procedure: both the files are in the usb root (MS400_101119_128.img + Custom-KV-v108-IV.tar.gz). Switch off lg, insert the usb, switch on pushing for 10 sec the round button in the front-not the reset one, but the MS400 starts normally (I see the led of usb key blinking). I tried with other usb key but the result is the same.
If I try to update the FW from the network, it finds the original new one, download it but at the end of download the screen frooze, nothing happeans and I've to reset the lg that starts normally.
I red many posts (in spanish) on the forum but nothing that can help me. Do you have any suggestion or trick to help me?

Many thanks in advance for your help

Gracias y Ciao

Giuseppe

Hello Giuseppe,
welcome to the forum!!!

Yes, right place to ask.

AFAIK 409 with the hd500G it is equivalent to the MS450H (european version).
But anyway, they are all four similar machines ...

If not an indiscrete question, how does an Italian guy ends with an Australian equipment ...? Wink

Our custom firmware, is compossed of two parts, with two installation phase:

<<
2) the FW installed is 20091209C and after start up, it comes directly on DTV and doesn't stay in menu.
>>

This is the right clue to know that first part of the installation went well. (this is the firmware part .img file)


<<
3) is there a way to force update via lan cable (I mean via telnet, this connection works well)?
>>

Now you need to assign the lg an ip address, and now from your pc you should open this ip in a web browser,
then you will see the nice lg menu which the many different options.
Please note that the lgmenu web server takes around 1 minute to start.

If you are not able to see lg menu, you will need to find out the reason the second part of install does not work,
the pacakge.tar.gz file in the usb menu.

I recommend to connect via telnet and try a manual install, by uncompresing the tar.gz and then execute the perfomUpdate.sh file.
then paste here the log if any issue.

You can also google translate from Spanish-Italian the spanish part of this firmware.

Also Keltek user is around, chief designer of lgmenu, and could help.

Good luck. Smile

MsHarmonyPack v1.4 January-2012 Empty Problem to update to 1.4

Hola Vic, just some answers:

1) I bought the MS409D on the web and it works more or less fine.

2) I think there is inside a custom FW but not the last one: when I try to update I had never seen "UPDAT" (start pushing the round button with usb inserted) and the system starts alway in normal mode going in DTV. I don't see the lg menu from web browser.

Anyway, in the next days I'll try to install manually the lg menu as you suggested me.... I'll keep you informed....

Gracias y Ciao

Mensaje  RNO el Jue Mar 21, 2013 1:26 am

I can't access LG through browser.
I can't set the TV channels in the proper order.

I just upgraded again to Harmony 1.4, because I couldn't access to the LG Menu through the web browser and sort the TV channels.
So I thought "maybe I should retry the upgrade"

The firmware upgrade wen't well, But I can't seem to manage to make it intall the LGmenu v6\Custom-KV-v108-IV.tar.gz
I unzipped both files on the USB key and proceded like this :

  • off/on with the front button
  • hold the rec button on the front until LG logo appears
  • let the update finish
  • see the mahcine switch off and on
  • answer all the configuration questions
  • and then ... nothing more

the channels are all set, everything is set, even the network.
I tried to access http://192.168.0.11/ (checked Ip of the LG) and I got nothing
I tried telnet and It asked me for Venus login/pwd, I don't know them.
I tried root/1234 and root/root ...

EDIT 2013.30.21:
I found login/pwd
usr:root
password:mugung
I will try these tomorrow.

What can I do ?
Should I try a telnet installation ?
