    OpenViX 6.5 Released!

    Important notice:

    If you like OpenViX and you want to see it continue please don't forget to donate towards keeping the servers online.

    Keeping OpenViX and this Forum online is getting more and more expensive. Donations in 2023 where only 70! So far donations in 2024 are 20! It costs in the region of 2000+ to keep OpenViX and this Forum online. OpenViX has always been provided to completely free of charge by a number of hard working OpenViX Team members in their spare time. It also costs a lot of money to keep OpenViX online. We have 3 dedicated servers for building images, OpenViX feeds/site and the Forum. There's also a 4th server that we provide to host EPG data for EPG Importer. Without the team and our servers there would be no OpenViX. Please do not take it for granted, unless donations improve servers costs cannot be paid by others indefinitely.

    New OpenViX version 6.5 image

    Discussion thread here.

    The new OpenViX version 6.5 image is based on OpenViX enigma2 and OE-Alliance-core branch 5.4

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

    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

    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.
    In install wizard you can then restore settings and plugins from OpenViX 6.4 (and earlier) series images. This will restore most things to how you had them before.


    So what is different in OpenViX 6.5?
    OpenViX 6.5 builds on the success of the 6.x series and aims to bring you the important things such as improved stability and bug fixes, rather than gimmicks.

    The main change from version 6.4 to version 6.5 has been to upgrade from oe-alliance-core branch 5.3 to 5.4. 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. Version 6.5 uses Python version 3.12 which is on average 25% faster than Python 3.10 when measured with the performance benchmark suite. For more info on Python 3 major speed improvement see the official documentation. https://docs.python.org/3/whatsnew/3.11.html https://docs.python.org/3/whatsnew/3.12.html

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

    • OE-A 5.4
    • Python 3.12
    • Multiboot for Vu+ 4k models
    • HELP screens revamped
    • Compatibility for IceTV plugin
    • OpenWebIf version 2.0
    • New modern skin E2DarkOs in feeds

    Known Image issues
    CrossEPG not working in 6.5.001. Please use one of the alternatives such as the embedded OpenTV reader or EPGImporter. From 6.5.002 this works fine. Thanks LraiZer and Twol for fixing this.
    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.

    Known Plugin/Receiver issues
    Some plugins may not be currently compatible with Python 3 or the OE-A 5.4 core, streaming plugins may also require their respective author's to add dependencies for GST 1.xx. If your plugins worked in any previous OpenViX 6.x series image they should be fine in this version.

    Please upgrade as soon as possible. We do not maintain previous versions.
    Basic feeds for the previous version (6.4) will be maintained for a short period only to allow users to upgrade to the new image. Items such as Kodi, Stalker, Nodejs, QT, etc. and feeds for all other previous versions have already been removed. Sorry for any inconvenience but resources are limited and we cannot maintain parallel versions. We have worked hard to make the upgrade process as easy as possible for our users. These days upgrading from the previous version is painless. Just follow the instructions at the top of this page and you will be up and running with the new version in a few short minutes.
