Re: Disabling Windows Features Updates

The only official answer is the LTSC branch, but only if you are an enterprise customer.

We could add it to the ever growing list of these and/or HD2/HD3 translators who are seemingly running without their primary on.

Re: Disabling Windows Features Updates

The good thing is, I figured out how to stop the notification, which is 90% of the battle.

Disabling Windows Features Updates

Does anyone have an actual way to disable the windows 10 "features" updates? I've disabled the group policy, deleted the contents of the download folder that they supposedly download to. Google has been less than helpful, giving me results from 2015 first that aren't even applicable to this version ...

Re: New engineer - questions

Here is a YouTube link to a presentation a...

Two things.
1) Contact MediaKind for your software, as this is still a supported receiver.

2) Load the 2nd memory bank, which should still have your older software if you did it correctly.
