    bootlogo.mvi doesn't show when booting

    I know this isn't a major issue, my VU+ Duo2 4K performs perfectly apart from this little quirk.

    The bootlogo.mvi doesn't show when my box boots up. It's been like this since day one. I've had loads of Openvix versions and it has always been this way. But I do like to make my own boot screens and it is annoying that I can't see it boot up as it should. I never had the issue with the VU Ultimo 4K.

    To check which file is not showing, I made 2 mvi images with the words bootlogo and backdrop on the respective image. I only see the backdrop.mvi on booting. Both files are where they should be.

    I've tried making them 1280x720 and 1920x1080 but it doesn't make any difference.

    I've changed the screen viewing mode size to all sizes but it is the same.

    I've made a video to show you what it does.



    Are all VU+ Duo2 4K boxes affected by this or is it just mine?

    I put bootlogo.mvi into /etc/enigma2.
    I put a random one in on each boot (except at Christmas, when it always gets the Christmas one). It's always worked for me. It switches half way through boot up (after boot, as enigma2 starts).

    /usr/share is the system location. You should never use this.

    Location priority is like this:
    Code:
    SEARCHDIRS="/etc/enigma2/${SKIN} /etc/enigma2/skin_common /etc/enigma2 /usr/share/enigma2/${SKIN} /usr/share/enigma2/skin_default /usr/share/enigma2 /usr/share"
    So /etc/enigma2 takes 3rd place in priority. And the logo gets saved in the backup for reinsertion on reflash.

    If a bootlogo.mvi does not display you need to check in the locations with higher priority to fine what is blocking it.

    I deleted the 2 files in user/share and ftp the 2 files to etc/enigma2 but I still only get the one showing on boot.

    Also, no need to be deleting things. That is what priority is about.

    If you have backdrop.mvi and bootlogo.mvi in /etc/enigma2 and one does not work, most likely the file is corrupt.

    AFAIR it only ever looks for bootlogo.mvi.

    I've tried various different bootlogo/backdrop files, so it isn't corruption. My original files which worked perfectly on my VU Ultimo4K doesn't show.

    What I have noticed, after the original VU logo, I get a black screen for about 2-3 seconds and then for a millisecond I got a dotty screen (for want of a better way of describing it) before returning to black and then the backdrop.mvi showing. It really is quick, I've tried to take a screenshot from the video I uploaded earlier. But the camera had adjusted the brightness setting and it is too quick to show you how it really looks. I'll add it anyway just realise this is normally dark with various screen dots.

    I'm wondering if it could be a fault with the VU Duo 4K SE bootloader.

    Actually, that would explain a lot. My VU Ultimo4K always showed both, but maybe the VU Duo 4K SE is different.

    As I said in my first post, it isn't a major issue and something I can live with. It works fine otherwise.

    EDIT: It's the Backdrop it shows, not the bootlogo.

    Odd. The enigma2 code only mentions bootlogo.mvi.
    Some plugins mention backdrop.mvi, though.

    @thecaretaker, do you have bootlogo file here : \Root\var\etc\init.d\

    #!/bin/sh
    # avoid the console messages clobbering our logo
    [ -f /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/bind ] && echo 0 > /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/bind
    # and set the correct videomode before showing the bootlogo
    [ -f /etc/videomode ] && cat /etc/videomode > /proc/stb/video/videomode

    if [ -x /usr/bin/showiframe ]; then
    SKIN=`sed -En 's|config\.skin\.primary_skin=(.+)/skin\.xml|\1|p' /etc/enigma2/enigma2/settings`
    if [ -z "$SKIN" ]; then
    SKIN=`strings -n 10 /usr/lib/enigma2/python/skin.pyc | egrep -o -m 1 ".+/skin.xml" | sed 's|/skin.xml.*||'`
    fi
    if [ -n "${SKIN}" ]; then
    SEARCHDIRS="/etc/enigma2/${SKIN} /etc/enigma2/skin_common /etc/enigma2 /usr/share/enigma2/${SKIN} /usr/share/enigma2/skin_default /usr/share/enigma2 /usr/share"
    else
    SEARCHDIRS="/etc/enigma2/skin_common /etc/enigma2 /usr/share/enigma2/skin_default /usr/share/enigma2 /usr/share"
    fi
    for DIR in ${SEARCHDIRS}; do
    if [ -d "${DIR}" ] && [ -f "${DIR}/bootlogo.mvi" ]; then
    /usr/bin/showiframe "${DIR}/bootlogo.mvi" &
    break
    fi
    done
    fi

    [ -f /etc/init.d/bootlogo.py ] && /usr/bin/python /etc/init.d/bootlogo.py

    @Orlandox Yes I do. This is what it contains.

    [ -f /etc/videomode ] && cat /etc/videomode > /proc/stb/video/videomode

    SKIN=`sed -En 's|config\.skin\.primary_skin=(.+)/skin\.xml|\1|p' /etc/enigma2/enigma2/settings`
    if [ -z "$SKIN" ]; then
    SKIN=`strings -n 10 /usr/lib/enigma2/python/skin.pyc | egrep -o -m 1 ".+/skin.xml" | sed 's|/skin.xml.*||'`
