CrossEPG Setup help

29 September 2015 - 21:09

Hi Guys/ Girls,


Can anyone give me some direction on setting up crossepg please?


I thought I had set it up right, but it only downloads for a second, not the usual 16mb it downloads on my other box.


Here's my setting:

Configure -

Flash Disk



Once a Day






OpenTV Providers

Sky Uk OpenTV (Astra2 on 28.2



I also created a folder on my usb stick called crossepg.


Ive crosse checked the settings against my vu+ Zero (Im setting up a Solo SE for my friend)


with those settings it dose'nt seem to download, am I missing something?


Any help would be appreciated











Problem installing Sky skin

25 September 2015 - 10:29



I hope someone can help,


I have been trying to install the SKY.NEW Skinby chababu, but for some reason after telneting the command:


"opkg update && opkg install -force-overwrite /tmp/*.ipk"


its not showing in the skin settings, even after re-booting.


I have already managed to install this on my vu+ zero but I am trying to set it up on my friends solo se. I have re-imaged the box a few times to no avail!


See screen shot below that seems to suggest its installed


Any help would greatly be apriciated as I have posted on the SKY.NEW Skin page but I'm not sure if anyone is active on thier any more.







Flash vu+ Solo SE

22 September 2015 - 20:08

Hi Guys,


I am trying to flash my friends vu+ Solo Se with OpenPLi but no matter what I do it just boots into the already installed image of openvix! 


I have extracted the zip file to the root of the usb, tried it in both USB ports on the back of the box (thier is no USB on the front) but each time I turn the box on it just loads in to openvix.


Can anyone help, I really dont want to have to use openvix.


Is there a file I can rename on the Solo to stop openvix booting and look for the usb? 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

can any one guide me to the setting to adjust the screen size on my vu+ zero, everytime I restart the box the openpli text if off the screen to the right! I have tried to adjust the tv page size but its not the tv thats the issue.


Also, I stupidly but blackhole on the box when I first purchased it without researching, I now have an amazing confirguration of openpli on, the thing is then it boots I no longer get the vu+ then Openpli, I get Blackhole then openpli screen....this is slightly anoying!  


any help would be great,


thanks guys...

vu+ zero local streaming via Openwebif or XBMC (vu+ enigma2)

1 July 2015 - 15:25

Hi all,

New comer to vu+ & OpenPLi, I'm usually pretty offey with technical things coming from an IT background but this is a little beyond me!

I recently purchased a vu+ zero that is all set up nicely, I have even installed a nice Sky+ skin that looks amazing, pretty much the next best thing.

anyway, my problem lies with streaming locally, One of the main reasons I purchased the vu+ was the ability to stream to my android tv box (in my bedroom) within XBMC (vu+ / enigma2 plugin) but unfortunately this just won’t stream.

I know what you’re going to say, this isn’t the place for xbmc related quires but I have tried this on a few different installs of xbmc with no avail so though I would try to stream via my laptop using Openwebif but its doesn’t seem to work on their either via VLC, hence this has me believing something locally on the vu+ zero isn’t config'd right.

I can change channels and see the EPG etc just nothing happens when trying to stream, can anybody help?

Let me know if you need any more info.

thanks in advance.
