#1623538 NEW plugin: InfoBarWeather

Posted by Pr2 on 21 May 2024 - 17:07

It is not the mo file that is needed but the po file.


The plugin git is here:




But unfortunately, scriptmelvin has passed away.


I saw that there is already a PR that nobody is able to approuve to add tr.po


So I don't know if OpenPLi fork it to keep a git where we can submit PR to.

#1617329 CI Module (Kabelio) and Openpli 9

Posted by Pr2 on 11 April 2024 - 12:16

You need a plugin to have CI+ on OpenPLi whatever the STB brand. On VU+ you need the CI+ certificate file while on some other brand you need a small application running.

You probably think that you don't need a plugin because autorestore does the job for you and restore the certificate.


Pulse4K is also working fine with the CI+ but having CI+ working is a savant combination of timing, different plugin: slowzap for CI and CI assignement, and sometimes some specific setup in oscam dvbapi file.

You can have different issue with different brand and a setup working fine with brand A will not work as-is out-of-the-box on brand B, every settings needs to be tuned.

You can compare CI+ setup with HDMI-CEC setup.


My father is TV addict and he is using both the CI+ and OScam on a Pulse 4K and trust me at the very first problem he had he called me. So if CI+ had problems with the Pulse4K I would be aware.  ;)

But of course it is based on my own experience with the CI+ CAM that I can test on my setup.


For you black screen problem install slow zap for CI and enable the Restart service after play (find the ones that needs it) and your black screen problem will be solved.

Broadcom refuses now to provide SoC for OpenSource STB so no more "Enigma" based STB with BroadCom will be available. They reserved there SoC for proprietary (provider) boxes. 

Only HiSilicon is currently providing SoC for "Enigma" STB.

Finding the right HDMI-CEC settings is sometimes tricky.


1. Forward volume keys:  this option is working if you have an amplifier between the STB and the TV, I can increase and decrease the volume with this option. But very few TV support it directly unfortunately.

#1545407 Webif problem with Latest OScam 11719

Posted by Pr2 on 10 June 2023 - 15:02

I don't think that you are using the standard OpenPLi OScam startup script so perform this:
Create a file /etc/init.d/softcam.OScamOpenPLi
With the following content:
case "$1" in
        ulimit -s 1024
        /usr/bin/oscam --wait 60 --config-dir /etc/tuxbox/config/oscam --daemon --pidfile /tmp/oscam.pid --restart 2 --utf8
        kill `cat /tmp/oscam.pid` 2> /dev/null
        # in case a normal stop failed
        killall /usr/bin/oscam
        $0 stop
        $0 start
        echo "gitAUTOINC+c41959f135"
        echo "oscam gitAUTOINC+c41959f135"
        echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|restart"
        exit 1
exit 0

cd /etc/init.d/
./softcam stop
rm softcam
ln -s softcam.OScamOpenPLi softcam
./softcam start
You can also create symlink to the OScam version you want to test.
cd /usr/bin/
ls -Falh oscam

Check if it is already a symlink or not.

If it is a symlink then:

rm oscam
ln -s oscamXXXXX oscam

where oscamXXXX is the name of the oscam binary that you want to test.

if it's not a symlink then keep a copy of your current OScam:

mv oscam oscam_old

Then create the symlink:

ln -s oscamXXXXX oscam

Restart you softcam:

/etc/init.d/softcam restart

#1545303 Webif problem with Latest OScam 11719

Posted by Pr2 on 10 June 2023 - 10:18

In OpenPLi the default path for the OScam configuration file is:  /etc/tuxbox/config/oscam/   by default oscam is not looking in this folder since it tries to use /usr/local/etc (this can be overwritten at compilation time).


So you need to say oscam where to find the configuration file:

So you need to start your OScam with:


--config-dir /etc/tuxbox/config/oscam


as parameter.


If you use the oscam from the feed everything is fine, if you manually try to install another oscam version then you need to learn how to do this properly.


The startup script of OScam in OpenPLi is:  /etc/init.d/softcam   which is a symlink normally pointing to softcam -> softcam.oscam


oscam binary is in:  /usr/bin/oscam  if you manually change it don't forget to chmod 755 oscam


There is no default port assigned for the OScam WebIf so if you start oscam so there is no WebIF active.

So specifying a configuration path with a valid oscam.conf  containing: httpport = XXXX  where XXXX is the port number that you want is mandatory to have OScam webif active.



#1543415 help with 8.3 settings restore please

Posted by Pr2 on 29 May 2023 - 16:12

Parameters can be different between image so there is "protection" mechanism to avoid to restore setting from one image to another one.


So you have to find where OpenSPA create the backup, unpack it manually and copy manually the files, I guess that you mainly want to retrieve your userbouquet, lamedb et perhaps softcam setup those should be bring problems.

But you should probably avoid to restore the /etc/enigma2/settings file.

Did you press the green button to save changes?

And did you put your STB into standby before power it off?

#1506346 channel list problem help

Posted by Pr2 on 26 December 2022 - 00:51

You need to put your box into standby to have the lamedb and the userbouquet properly saved before you switch it off.

I guess that you scan the channel and power off the box after that without first putting it into standby, so your channel list is not saved and at next start you retrieve the last proper standby channel list.
