The Future

  • LCD Webapp on some drivers provides tools to export and import your settings making upgrades easier.

The Current Process

see this article and this article for some of the more detailed Steps

  1. To upgrade a driver the following steps must be followed:
  2. Remove the Driver from the room.
  3. Reboot the processor using the Setup app or Console Command (gracefulreboot)
  4. Download or Sideload the new Driver and reinstall into the room
  5. Verify the new version is loaded
  6. Reconnect any Events and Actions / Apply any required settings and configuration.

Ref

Some reference to show you what the Setup app Icons mean

This Cloud icon allows you to download the cloud version when you have a sideloaded version already in place. This will replace the sideloaded version with the latest from drivers.crestron.io
NB: If you have a sideloaded version loaded you must remove otherwise all subsequent drivers loaded will be the the older version despite the setup app reporting the newer version
The Version of a driver loaded to a room can be found in the Settings of the driver by pressing on the cog on the driver in the room. However this can be misleading so use with caution if you have multiple drivers on your system of the same type.
