Hello Voxel,
Does this include the updates from the latest Netgear firmware update for the R9000
v1.0.5.36 released on 19th August?

It included;

Enhancements:
- Updates Plex Media Server to v1.22.3
- Updates the QoS database to v1.108

Bug Fixes:
- Removes OpenDNS Live Parental Control to fix security vulnerability issues

Security Fixes:
-Fixes security vulnerability issues.


The reason I ask is that you normally include things that are relevant from the official updates, but you make things a lot better
However, your changelogs doesn't mention the Plex update or QoS database update.

I think your firmware may still be running older versions;
Plex Media Server 1.19.5
QoS DB 1.94


I know you're very busy right now, and your health should always come first

Try to flash SnapShot version V1.0.4.54.2HF (. It includes these latest Plex and QoS DB. Plus many other changes.
