    Image 6.0.001 - missing plugins

    Dear all

    In a second attempt I tried to restore all plugins except hbbtv. However these plugins are missing (cannot be downloaded)

    - mediaportal
    As hbbtv does not run on mpsel processors it was the only way to see the mediaportal for Swiss, German and Austrian TV stations.

    -MP3Browser
    This old MP3 player allowed me to see the song lyrics

    - Wikipedia

    -xmb weather
    A very userfriedlly weather plugin

    So I see no advantage to stay with 6.0.001 but I go back to 5.4.016.

    Hi,
    maintainer of mediaportal stopped supporting other boxes than DreamBoxes. I do not think that there will be a solution.

    Question orphaned plugins

    How difficult is is to rewrite these orphaned plugins which are not running under phyton 3 and how could I learn this?
    It is a pity that very user-friendly software is abandoned without replacement.

    I think it is worth migrating the best ones.

    programming experince

    I programmed xml based user interfaces for java applications and have a clue about object oriented programming but have no phython knowledge so far. This doesn't mean I could learn it.

    .... you'll need to find the source of these plugins first, a couple haven't changed for 5 years and are only available as .ipk's.

    Yes, source files are needed. There are convertor tools to do the basics, and then you just need to run the code and deal with any problems.

    Providing you have programmed in some language, then you will understand the basics, then its a case of trying - so choosing a plugin that doesn‘t work in py3 is a good starting point, followed by large chunks of Googling.
    My knowledge goes back decades to mainframes, so learning python was an interesting challenge (and is still a challenge!)

    I knew Assembler pretty well - still have the IBM yellow code booklet! But started by punching machine code into paper tape or punch cards!

    I still have the yellow foldable card. I was a Systems Programmer for many years on Dos, Dos/VS, OS2 and MVS. I was pretty quick on the 029 card punch.

    Learning programming is one issue. The other one is that all the plug-ins I miss are from the same author without web page and email address. This way I cannot get the source codes.
