#1414618 How is OpenPLi so fast compared to other images?

Posted by Pr2 on 29 December 2021 - 18:33

I have also tested other images but I always comeback to OpenPLi.
The main differences are that OpenPLi doesn't include all the possible drivers and many plugins out of the box.
So when you are starting OpenPLi is less user-friendly because you need to find what to install to have some features like EPGImport for exemple.
On other images they load many plugins so newbies find it easy they plug an USB tuner it works, you need EPG Import you have it.
So once you know what you really use and then need you switch to OpenPLi and install them.

In OpenPli you never had to ask what to delete but what to add.

And the default skin is also for me the best, all others skins that I test never fullfil my expectations many technical informations are missing. Other skins have many renderer that just slow down the GUI, personally I don't care to have the weather, the sport result, the SoC and HDD temperatures but I'd like to easily find the service id of a channel.
An efficient skin also contribue to the speed feeling of the GUI. And I'd like too that it's a HD skin.

#1413846 EPGImport latest changes: explanation

Posted by Pr2 on 27 December 2021 - 16:39

The plugin is storing the setting into Enigma2 "memory", Enigma2 is flushing it to the flash when you shutdown or restart your box (init 4 is flushing the settings to flash).

If you power off the box without going first to standby your settings changes are not saved, this is the "normal" behavior of Enigma2 and is valid for your Enigma2 settings too, this is not specific to EPGImport.

You are not supposed to power off your box when while it is running.

#1412726 Fast Scan for Telesat Belgium is wrong

Posted by Pr2 on 21 December 2021 - 20:07



M7 group has been purchased by French Canal+  so now the basic french channels are provided on Astra 19.2E and no longer on Hotbird 13.0E officially (even if you can open them with your TeleSat subscription).


As you can see officially on the TeleSAT website:




You will see that TF1, France 2, .... are now referenced on Astra on no longer on Hotbird.  So FastScan is right.


Moreover you have a far better image on Astra (all channels are in HD) than on Hotbird.

#1401902 Video Afspelen

Posted by Pr2 on 12 November 2021 - 14:18

I have a VU+ Solo4K and I can play a DVD with subtitle and they are displayed.

So there is no issue with DVD and subtitles.

I have toggle them on / off  to be sure that they are displayed or not.


Tested with OpenPLi 8.1 develop with default skin.


The DVD is played from a Synology NAS (NFS mount).

#1394070 VU+ Zero 4k + Mygica t230 + OPENPLI 8.1 stable

Posted by Pr2 on 15 October 2021 - 09:40

I have also a T230 but be carefull that the same name hides different chipset. My very old one (1st generation is working) but I think that the latest one is not working.

By googling you can find issue and alternative firmware that you can test.
Here is what I have in my personal restore script (some are commented out):

#  MyGica T-230
opkg install enigma2-plugin-drivers-ct2-usb-geniatech-t230
opkg install enigma2-plugin-drivers-ct2-usb-dvbsky-t330
# MyGica T-230
# opkg update
# opkg install kernel-module-dvb-usb-cxusb \
# kernel-module-si2157 \
# kernel-module-si2168 \
# firmware-dvb-demod-si2168-b40 \
# firmware-dvb-tuner-si2158-a20

Egami image is preinstalling many things in it so I guess that all the drivers are already loaded.

You don't need to edit the mo file but the po files.

if you are willing to help with italian translation you are welcome, since we don't have active italian translator.


There is a wiki page to explain how you can help:




For a quick start:

- Install PoEdit on your PC

- Download this file:




Edit it with PoEdit and then you can attach here the resulting it.po (we don't need to .mo file) so we can include it back into github.



#1387234 develop: python3 transition

Posted by Pr2 on 25 September 2021 - 08:27

I totally agree you should move forward, people are still use old no longer maintained plugins or skins. I read so many times that you cannot develop a proper solution because it will break plugin or some skins.
Switching to Python 3 is the good time to get rid of all of this old stuff.
Plugin developers or skin creators should also be ready to adapt there code, otherwise you cannot go forward.

SD card is mounted as /media/mcc/  so you need to define this path for recording.

#1377526 Release Openpli 8.1 available in the downloadsection.

Posted by Pr2 on 26 August 2021 - 10:10

If you read what is explained before there was a server failure and we are unable to restore the versionning of the package like it was before the crash, so what kind of miracle do you expect to fix it?

We warn the users that they need to flash (like we do when changing of major release) if you want to perform an online upgrade give a try (you probaly have to run it several times) but then don't blame us if it is not working as expected or if you cannot upgrade some packages.

#1374254 Resume on playback working only for recorded movies.

Posted by Pr2 on 18 August 2021 - 14:16

Are those files played from a location where your box has read write access?


Copy the file into the /media/hdd/movie/ and play it from there and check it the resume point is working.

#1372806 Zgemma H10 Combo issues.

Posted by Pr2 on 13 August 2021 - 07:44

I have other boxes Hisilicon boxes connected with HDMI-CEC on and it is working, so you cannot say that HDMI-CEC is not working on all HiSilicon boxes.

It is working on both Panasonic and Sony.

#1371190 Lcd4linux problem

Posted by Pr2 on 7 August 2021 - 16:14



in a nutshell , i want the same proportion on lcd in stand by and working mode like those use on Duo 4K SE .Ultimo 4k screen is larger and clock is too small in stand by mode. Also rec icon should be larger and picon. I watch tv from 3,5 meter and vu screen is harder to read.

The Friends of PLi should have all the decoders to fix everything, but it is not possible. Decoders that have a display like our vu + unfortunately need help from those who own it. For example, I have a 4K one if I worked on the .xml file to optimize everything. In your case you should do this job and turn them the optimized file like I did, in fact it was put in the reposity as good.

Il mio telefono!


You have absolutely right but why coders abandoned support for Lcd4llinux plugin ? On Duo 2 work great and now customer must show initiative pretending work of coders.Maybe time to create site or forum for tv sat hobbysts :lol:



OpenPLi is fully done by sat hobbyists!


I own a Duo 4K and Solo 4K and I am happy with the current LCD display.


Here is the thread where krimesis adapt the LCD display for OpenPLi:
