    Spud,

    In the DirecTV_3-0-0-19.zip above, I am seeing an hspi_directv.exe with an 8/25/2017 date and a 3.0.0.18 version number. After I updated to the new version the plugin manager was still saying I was on 3.0.0.18 and needed to update - I finally checked the zip and noticed the exe date/version.

    thanks,
    Robert

      3.0.0.19 is in the updater. The plug-in is no longer a beta, so you can install it directly from the updater. Look under “media”.

      EDIT: I’m getting the same thing from the updater. When 3.0.0.19 is installed from the updater, it shows up as 3.0.0.18 and prompts or an update to 3.0.0.19. It does not update.

        Yes I originally tried the updater and it kept saying it was still at 3.0.0.18 after the update. I then checked the actual zip that the updater was downloading and it has the old exe in it. Then I checked the 3.0.0.19 attached to this post and it is the same.

          I re attached a zip file with the right exe to this thread, and I submitted it to the updater (so it should be updated shortly)
          Sorry for this problem.

            That got it. Thanks! This may have been discussed before, my apologies if it has. I have a Genie server and several clients. The plug-in devices work well, except for power controls. None of the three power buttons in the device or the two in the remote control have any effect. Is this a limitation of the Genie or a problem in the plug-in. The power controls worked before we were switched to a Genie.

              It's a known problem, On/Off doesn't work for Genie clients, unfortunately the problem is not on the plugin side and I never found any explanation or workaround for this issue.
