switch channel during timeshift without stopping

26 February 2017 - 19:30

I have a mutant 51 with 2 tuners and a harddisk installed under /media/hdd.


Techically it should be possible to e.g. timeshifting channel A

and switching to channel B while still timehifing channel A


But the only thing I can do when swiching is:

Stop timeshift?

1. yes

2. no

3. yes and save

4. yes and save to movie folder


I read something about permanent timeshift plugin,

but I would like to use timeshift with pause button.


Can this be configured??



mutant hd51 software update and plugin download problem (and more...)

17 February 2017 - 20:31

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!!
