Got a new mutant 51 from online dealer.


First I was not shure what kind of image is installed,

but trying the online update function showed:


status of current beta image could not be checked


can not be reached


(The network is configured properly via

ethernet, and I can also log in via telnet)


if I try setup->software update->yes

(Do you want update your receiver?)


I have errors like.:

opkg_download_backend: Failed to download http://downloads.pli...rty/Packages.gz



I am also unable to install plugins,

I think there is also a "bad" URL somewhere

in the system.


I can't find any place via menu or

"inside" the box (via telnet) to configure

the relevant settings.


Also recording to usb does not work,

timeshift works after manually mounting

usb /dev/sda1 to /media/hdd

(Also created /media/hdd/movie without success)


Information->About shows:



kernel  4.4.0



=   20160922110048


How can I SECURE backup (I want to be able

to sent a working box back to drealer)  the image and install a

new one?


All I want is a STABLE box, with 2 tuners,

using usb, timeshift and record funtionality.


Thanks in advance!!

Whatever it is, it is not an OpenPLi image, it looks like it is made with our sources but compiled without feeds, just with a copy of our configuration.


Download the latest HD51 image from our homepage, and flash it.

Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2+fallback), Octagon SF8008 (S2+T2), Zgemma H9.2H (T2+fallback)

Due to health reasons, I will have periods of inactivity, during which I don't respond to posts or PM.

Many answers to your question can be found in our new and improved wiki.
