Bought a "good as new" very nice looking DM 8000HD with no visible wear. Had not been used for 2+ years!

It had OpenPLi 4 (?) on it and I updated to the current OpenPLi 7.0 Stable.

I have 2 problems with it:

1) Picture freezes randomly during up-time, sometimes 1, sometimes 2, sometimes 3 times a day.

Sometimes (not often) it runs all day without freezing. Audio is OK.


What can this be -  any suggestions to fix it?



2) Every night at approx. 01.00 the box restarts all by itself but freezes at that point.


What can this be - any suggestions to a fix?

You need to provide a lot more information.


What is your definition of "freezing"? What are you looking at when that happens (dvb broadcast, dvb recording, other media, stream, ...), does the network still work when that happens (webif, ping, telnet)?


There is nothing in the image that restarts a box, so what happens in your house or on your box at 01:00?  EPG imports or updates? The 8000 doesn't have a lot of memory, and is bad in memory management.

Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2), SAB Alpha Triple HD (S2+T2), Zgemma H3.T2C (T/C), Zgemma H6 (fallback), VU+Zero (fallback)

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