#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.

Yes the one from the develop branch is always at the same place.

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I totally agree you should move forward, people are still use old no longer maintained plugins or skins.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:



#1370174 [help] How to add channels.xml (python code) from epgimporter

Posted by Pr2 on 3 August 2021 - 09:01

why are you starting form the lamedb?


If you create favorites (aka bouquets) with the channels that you are watching, you will have immediately the right service reference in it.

So you will ease your life if you work from the userbouquet files than from the lamedb. 

#1368018 no way to connect to ssh via authorized_keys

Posted by Pr2 on 27 July 2021 - 17:46

i just perform a fresh flash without any restore and the values for dropbear are:

root@vuduo4k:~# cat /etc/default/dropbear
# Disallow root logins by default
DROPBEAR_RSAKEY_ARGS="-t ecdsa -s 521"

So this is indeed working.

#1366602 Blind scan error on VU DUO 4KSE

Posted by Pr2 on 22 July 2021 - 11:37

Duo 4K se has modular tuner may be you can purchase a non FBC VU+ tuner that support blindscan and plug it in (but check its compatibility first).

You can also have a look at external DVB-S2 USB tuner but then you should ensure that they are blindscan capable and that they are compatible with the Duo 4K se kernel version.


We should never assume anything when purchasing a STB, I have a VU+ Solo4K it has 2 cardreaders and 1 CI slot, I purchase later on the Duo 4K and was surprised to see that it has only one card reader. :-( (but 2 CI slots).

I purchase also other brand STB assuming that every dual tuners boxes are capable to perform Picture-In-Picture and stream but they are not.


Choosing the right STB is not an easy think, it is hard to find one that will fulfill all the requirements.

#1351567 OpenMultiboot

Posted by Pr2 on 23 May 2021 - 12:02

Vu+ is not supporting true MultiBoot nothing we can do about it. If you need to use MultiBoot you should have purchased a box that natively support it.
OpenMultiboot is just changing the mount point to allow to try other images but this can result in conflict between OE-Alliance images and OpenPli and this is what you experience here. Some image goes change some stuff in the common mounted part.
You cannot conclude anything about any image when using it with OpenMultiboot since you don't run the true full image.
I totally stop using OpenMultiboot due to all those problems.
If I want to test different image I flash them normally in the VU+ or I use the MultiBoot of the Gigablue Trio 4K.
So if you are unhappy with OpenPli feel free to use any other image that better fits your needs. That's the main advantage of our boxes.

#1350331 OpenMultiboot

Very good thing OpenMultiboot is not a true MultiBoot it just fake the folders so some image can corrupt the other one by writing into the common folders. Don't use it!

#1346967 I’m unhappy with OpenPLi. Looking for ‘help’.

Posted by Pr2 on 6 May 2021 - 20:28

We don't know which box you have, what is your setup. Which provider you are watching, do you use a smartcard which softcam or do you use a pcmcia module.
