Posted by WanWizard on 4 April 2020 - 18:03

The current release version is 7.2-release.

  1. Get yourself a USB stick, USB2, preferrably not too big
  2. Format your USB stick with a FAT32 file system
  3. Download the required image version from https://openpli.org/.../zgemma/Star H2
  4. Unpack the ZIP file and place the content on a USB disk, as-is, including folders
  5. Make sure the box is swiched off
  6. Plug the USB stick to the back panel USB port. Do not insert in the front of the receiver as it will not work
  7. Press and hold power button at front of receiver.
  8. Press the master power button at the back of the receiver to on position.
  9. Take finger off the front power button when “FLSH” is displayed on the front of the receiver.
  10. Wait, flashing the receiver takes about 4 minutes.
  11. “BOOT” will then be displayed on the front of the receiver
  12. The new image now starts...

The current OpenPLi will remain available, so as long as the box does what you want it to do, no need to replace it, I think.

#1181840 total tv 16 east eit epg multiple languages problem

Posted by WanWizard on 28 March 2020 - 15:19

I am not talking about the interface, I am talking about the EPG language.


If you don't specify your preferences, or your prefererences are not available, you get whatever is first in the list. So you really need to specify for example "croation first, english second" to make sure that you get croatian when available.


Like so:


( I want English first if available, if not, give me whatever is default )

#1181648 Synology NAS in OpenPLI einbinden

Posted by WanWizard on 27 March 2020 - 15:51

Das Problem vor der Version 7.2 bestand darin, dass die verwendete SMB-Version von der Kernel-Version vorgegeben wurde. Wenn dies nicht mit dem Server übereinstimmte, mussten Sie manuell konfiguriert werden.


Wenn Sie also eine VU + Duo 2 (alter Kernel, SMBv1) und eine Synology (SMBv1 deaktiviert) haben, würde dies ohne zusätzliche Konfiguration nicht funktionieren.


Ich habe SMBv1 in meiner Synology deaktiviert (dies geschieht automatisch, wenn Sie alle Sicherheitskorrekturen anwenden), und Sie können im Screenshot sehen, dass das Image den Mount als SMBv2.1 erkannt hat.

You can't edit pyo and pyc files, you need the source, which is in the py file. Source packages can be installed seperately.

#1179612 AutoTimer broken

Posted by WanWizard on 21 March 2020 - 16:26

Autotimer doesn't support both bouquet and channel, it is one or the other.


In this case, the selected channel is ignored because of the bouquet selection.


This issue has been reported before, but afaik not adressed yet.

For a while now, we have been working hard on the next major OpenPLi release, OpenPLi 8.


Core of this new major release is a large OE update, from the current Yocto 2.3 (Pyro) to Yocto 3.0 (Zeus), and support for gcc v9.


To be able to build images with this new OE version, the BSP's (board support packages, or meta-layers) of the different manufacturers need to be adapted, as currently they are not compatible.


This brings us to the following challenge:


Some vendors we build images for do no longer exist, do not want to spend money updatting end-of-life hardware, or simply don't respond to support requests anymore.


Since we don't have anyone in the team with both the skills and the time to maintain BSP's, we will be forced to end the support for some brands as of OpenPLi 8.


These are:

  • Axas
  • Spycat
  • SAB
  • Xtrend
  • Miraclebox
  • Dream Multimedia
  • Galaxy Innovations
  • Golden Interstar

The good have to suffer because of the bad.


We have had people in the past retroactively changing their posts, sometimes weeks later, and this forum software doesn't have the feature to block edits one there is a reply (which imho would be the best solution).

#1175908 OpenPli 7.2 + oscam

Posted by WanWizard on 11 March 2020 - 15:01

I can't, because I have no clue what you're doing.


You get an oscam binary from "somewhere", which is build on an unknown platform with an unknown config setup, you put it on your box, it doesn't work, and now you want me to look into my crystal ball and fix whatever unknown problem you have?


Like I said, you can install oscam from the feed, and it works directly, you can also install oscam-emu from the feed, it will work directly too. There is no need to install both, as oscam-emu does exactly the same as oscam.

If testing is succesful, yes. Wouldn't be the first driver update that introduces more issues than it fixes... ;)
