Crash after unattended upgrade

30 October 2012 - 19:43

After doing an unattended update the box rebooted but got stuck at "Starting" for more than 5 minutes, at which time I switched off the box. When I switch my VU+ Uno back on, only a red diode in the front is visible and nothing is happening.

I last updated about two weeks ago (and I am on OpenPLi 3.0).

Any ideas?

XBMC, stale streams, and zapping

8 April 2012 - 08:53

I recently bought an Apple TV (gen 2) and installed XBMC on it and happily found that it's internal tuxbox streaming protocol works quite well with the OpenWebIf on my VU+ Uno. The two issues I still have are:

1) From XBMC I can only zap between channels that are on the same transponder as the channel currently being watched on the Uno. Has anyone else had such issues and solved them?

2) After streaming XBMC often does not close the stream properly and the tuner in the Uno is still hogged. Is there a way, other than rebooting the Uno, to kill a stale stream?

Any help is appreciated!

Error starting scan

25 February 2012 - 17:03

After today's upgrade I cannot do an automatic channel scan. I get the message "ERROR - Failed to scan (error starting scan)". What can I do to search for or solve the problem?

I am running a very vanilla installaton of OpenPLi, with CCcam and Swedish language as the only modification from the provided settings. The reason I upgraded was an attempt to get a new satellites.xml and search for the recently started TV4 News channel.

Modeless universal remote control

According to the specifications, my VU+ Uno comes with a "Modeless universal remote control" and it does indeed have "TV" and "STB" buttons, but how do I program it?
