#1100622 Is there an hour when the box deletes old timers and trahs files ?

Posted by WanWizard on 11 September 2019 - 15:44

Files in trash are not deleted automatically I think, it is like in Windows you need to ask to empty the trash.

Press Menu when on the trash folder and choose empty.


I think it depends on where your Trash is.


A trash folder is created on every file system you have available, but I'm pretty sure (without looking at the code) Enigma doesn't scan them all, it only checks the trash folder on the filesystem that holds your recording location.


So if you navigate to an USB stick or a NAS mount, and you delete something there, it will not be deleted automatically if your recording location is your local harddisk...

#1099514 Bit of help please with flashing an Xtrend et5000.

Posted by WanWizard on 9 September 2019 - 12:02

Flash procedure for an ET5000:

  • Insert the USB stick into either any of the USB ports on the ET5000 on the front or rear panel, it doesn't matter which you use.
  • Now Power Off and Power On the ET5000 through the powerswitch at the rear panel of the box
  • After Power On, ET5000 will try and detect if there is ET5000 firmware available on the USB stick.
  • When the yellow/orange LED shines then there is ET5000 firmware detected. To load the ET5000 firmware you'll need to press the up button on the frontpanel at this point. When the green and the yellow/orange LED shine together the ET5000 is loading the firmware.
  • Please be patient because it will take a couple of minutes to finish upgrading.
  • When the yellow/orange LED disappears then the ET5000 is finished upgrading the firmware. The ET5000 will startup automatically after the upgrade is finished.

#1094606 Openpli V6.1 Network problem

Posted by WanWizard on 24 August 2019 - 02:27

Ok, and this should solve all network problem?

How about a solution??

OR some kind of tips ;) - quick and straight to the point. :)


How can we create a solution if we don't know the problem, and we can't find the problem because you're using something that does not exist, and has never existed.


There is a reason why we have retired the old entry level DMM boxes...

#1094142 Best SatReceiver?

Posted by WanWizard on 22 August 2019 - 10:37

You don't need it in your STB. You can use an ordinary hdd. Seagate have a 5TB 2½" and it works without problem in DUO 4K.


A 5TB 2,5" disk is with almost 100% certainty an SMR disk.


SMR disks requires tracks to be written in sequence because they overlap, which is why they have large (128MB+) caches. Once the cache fills up, it has to be written to disk, and the performance of the disk plummets.


This means that as long as the disk can keep up with your writing (aided by the cache), you're fine. As soon as it can't do it anymore, your recordings will have dropouts.


The fact you say it works fine means you haven't reached this point yet. ;)

#1093906 Sanity check: Dual FBC tuners (VU+) op GSO switch

Posted by WanWizard on 21 August 2019 - 16:41

Een FBC tuner bestaat niet, en er is niks dual aan een FBC module. Een FBC module heeft 2 root tuners, elk gekoppeld aan een input, en 6 leaf tuners, die dynamisch intern worden doorgelust op een van de twee root tuners.


Elk van die root tuners kun je configureren als een legacy tuner, direct op een LNB of gekoppeld aan een DiseqC switch, en dan emuleert de root tuner een traditionele tuner. De leaf tuners gedragen zich dan als gewone tuners, die intern doorgelust zijn (en hebben dan dus de beperking van het kwadrant waarop de root tuner is afgestemd).


Dus ja, je kunt de A en B tuner van zo'n FBC module (of I en J als het de tweede module is) configureren alsof het ouderwetse tuners zijn, werkt prima. Van de andere moet je afblijven, laat die op "FBC automatic" staan.

#1090983 need clarification about commits and 7.1-release

Posted by WanWizard on 13 August 2019 - 16:18

as far as it's ok, but i thought if i flash a new image from date 12.08.2019 and now install the three plugins as above mentioned from feed

all these commits are in the new image, but that is not the case - why ?


Because a release image is a stable image, which means everything is pinned on commit hash, which needs manual updating after a component is updated and properly tested in develop.


Often, the component gets updated, if we're lucky it gets properly tested, but a PR to update the commit hash is hardly ever created. ;)

#1089375 solo4k sdl

Posted by WanWizard on 7 August 2019 - 14:21

SDL2 2.0.5 is part of the OE version we ship with OpenPLi 7.1. 


2.0.10 has only been updated in OE 6 days ago (https://github.com/o...raphics/libsdl2), but the recipe is different.


I'd rather port this one, then use a custom recipe, which will always become a pain when we need to upgrade OpenPLi to a newer OE version...

#1088767 How to build Enigma2 images.

Posted by WanWizard on 6 August 2019 - 10:03

Haha, huge, i presume that there are all packages builded and entire cache.

All images, all packages, complete sstate-cache, rm_work active for release images.

I wonder why 7.1 is bigger than RC or develop.

It's the other way around, the second value is "used". I suspect that for debug reasons the RC's where build without rm_work, and with buildhistory active (is used to generate the pinning in reporefs.conf).


Also, we've created a cleanup script that runs after every build, which hasn't run for rc, as that hasn't been build for a while.

Can you share infos regarding the hardware behind those buildservers?


Our buildervers are Intel Core i7 7700K machines, 32GB ram, with 2 SATA disks for storage and the OS (part in raid 1), and 2 Samsung EVO 970 1TB SSD disks for the images (hence two build directories per server).
