    Image Backup command?

    hey

    is it possible to start an image backup from the command line.

    i know its possible from the GUI but i would like to automate the task using a cron timer.

    I don't think you need to go to that extreme. The Image Manager allows daily/weekly/monthly backups. In the Image Manager press the Menu button and you will see "Schedule backups"

    The above option is best.

    If you still want to do it by command line, start enigma2 in console mode/enable debug logs and perform the operation, check console/log for said operation.
