Service type 4097

TimeShift - not work why?

Who can explain what is missing?

Look at servicedvb.cpp. There is timeshift implemented for service type 1. It's quite much code to start a recording and make it possible to switch between live and timeshift.

In the time back I have implemented 4097 recording I was happy that it worked. I didn't look into making timeshift possible.

I haven't looked into the code for a long time, but I guess it would be possible to add timeshift for 4097, but that's not very easy and adds I guess much code.

In the past we thought about completely rewriting the timeshift code. "Only" add a "timeshift timer" which starts a recording and then when you want to switch to timeshift you need to playback the recording. I guess it would be easier to implement, but has also side effects...

Solche Funktion ist bei anderen Image zwar vorhanden, aber aus unerklärlichen Gründen möchte gerne OpenPLi im STARUP 1 haben.


Wenn OpenMultiboot verwendet wird, dann muss OpenPLi im Flash landen.

Bei Boxen, die Multiboot hardwareseitig (wie die e4hd) unterstützen, kannst du OpenPLi in einen beliebigen Slot/Startup flashen.

Well, read the error message: "No such file or directory: /etc/code".

The plugin needs the file and I think you need to create it by yourself....


As it's most likely illegal IPTV, I don't give you more hints and we don't maintain that plugin.

In Topic: Flashing octagon sf8008 from the command line

Yes, is possible.

I can't test myself at the moment. So better be sure that you have a full backup and that you don't have any important data on the SD card!

ofgwrite -n -m0 -ksda0 -rsda1 <path to image files>

The -n parameter is for a test. You can look at the output and your box won't be flashed.

Important: Exchange the sda0 with a kernel partition on the SD card and the sda1 with a rootfs partition.

And please don't change the -m0 if you want to flash partitions on the SD card.

If you're sure that the output looks good, you can flash by removing the -n parameter.
