    OpenViX 6.2 Released!



    OpenViX 6.2 is based on the OE-Alliance-core branch 5.1.

    The easiest way to flash latest OpenVix image is to do the following:

    First:
    Download the image to your receiver's storage device
    Blue button > ViX > Image manager > Yellow (Downloads) > Select OpenViX > Select image version > Press OK
    You will see the download status

    Second:
    Once downloaded, you should still be in Image manager and the latest image should be highlighted.
    Ensure you have the correct image selected then press the Blue button (Flash)
    The new image will flash and box will reboot when completed



    You can then restore settings and plugins from OpenViX 6.1 (and earlier) series images after you have flashed the image. This will restore most things to how you had them before.

    RESTORE PROCESS WILL NOT RESTORE PLUGINS THAT ARE NOT ON THE CURRENT PLUGIN SERVER. THESE MUST BE INSTALLED MANUALLY.


    There are many guides to flash/restore. Here is another

    So what is different in OpenViX 6.2?
    OpenViX 6.2 builds on the success of 6.0 and aims to bring you the important things such as improved stability and bug fixes, rather than gimmicks.

    The main change from version 6.0 to version 6.2 has been to upgrade from oe-alliance-core branch 5.0 to 5.1. The OE (Open Embedded) core on which the image is built has also undergone major changes, updates and fixes, and uses the latest bitbake version. Also the enigma2 codebase has been updated to remove Python 2 backwards compatibility code that is no longer needed.

    It is now possible to display the menu as a horizontal scrolling list (requires a compatible skin, currently Magic-FHD or Simple1080).

    Contains experimental FCC (fast channel change) code for hardware that supports this (Vu+ models with FBC tuners).

    ***Password required for FTP, TELNET & SSH!*** SEE GUIDE HERE!

    • OE-A 5.1
    • Python 3.10
    • Extensive changes "under the covers" to meet python3.10 requirements.
    • Some plugins may no longer be supported (depends on source availability etc) or still may need code changes
    • Has been extensively piloted over last 5 months.


    Apart from the above users should not notice many other differences between previous OpenViX 6.0 and OpenViX 6.1 (i.e. there are not many functional differences.).

    Known Image issues
    Dreamplex - Some users in certain setup's may have issues.
    QuadPiP - file in /etc/enigma2/quadpip/ should be deleted after a restore from settings, setup recreated and a new settings backup made.
    Some users in certain setup's may have issues.

    Known Plugin/Receiver issues
    Older receivers with lower amounts of memory struggle with downloading OpenTV EPG data using Cross EPG downloader. Use a swap file in such cases.
    Some plugins may not be currently compatible with python3 or the OE-A 5.1 core, streaming plugins may also require their respective author's to add dependencies for GST 1.xx.
