Hi,

Octagon SF8008. The display only shows the channel number, it doesn't show time after moment. There is time on standby. I tried the vfdcontrol plugin but the settings do not work.

Zgemma, for example H9 Twin, shows channel number and after 5s time on the display. Is the any way to set the same on Octagon?

I've checked on openatv and looks ok, channel number then clock after 5s. Tried on older Zgemma H2H and ok as well, why only Octagon with OpenPli shows channel number only?

Because channel is prefered in PLi. Clocks you can to have on the wall (or as Analog clock in right corner in screen).

Hi mate, thanks for you reply but what do you mean 'channel is prefered in PLi'? And I don't need clock on my wall or tv screen. Just on my Octagon's display.  Don't tell me please that channel is preferred on display on PLi. Zgemma H9 Twin, H2H, H7 show channel then after 5s CLOCK.

And when you have many favorites the front LCD is not capable to display the whole number, so having the choice to display the clock after 5 seconds make sense to me too.

For it exist in feed 'vfdcontrol' plugin.

If it not works for your model, try add device_model string to line 16. That's all.

 

There is missing f.eg. "ustym4kpro", "gbtrio4k" and similar it will be for sf

I think, "sf8008" will be ok. Or do you have 'sf8008m' ?

Place this file to directory with VFDControl plugin and restart enigma. Then let me know
