    Default Commando_v14_5-dm500s-Neutrino-Release

    Here we go then, with yet another CRACKING Commando release for DM500S

    Actually, it should also work on DM500C boxes,too, if you pop your own local cables.xml file into /var/etc

    Okay, what has changed since the October 2011 Commando 14.4 release? Let's take a look...

    Sadly, Rytec online 2 Day EPG has been removed. LraiZer reports that the downloaded tarball, when unzipped into /tmp - has now grown so phat, it's the straw that breaks the camel's back. In other words- the box crashes, through memory issues...

    We're not saying Rytec EPG is gone forever, as Laz has said he will look at alternative ways of handling this data in the future, possibly by doing it on a file by file basis, along the lines that his RadioTimes online EPG works. Anyone got a fast (and FREE) host server we could use for this future dev, pleeeze?

    What's new then?

    GetEPG by LraiZer. Up to 7 Days EPG direct from the sat stream, so it works even if your box isn't online. This has been made the default EPG mode, and WILL kick in 60 seconds after you've flashed C14.5 - just so you can see how it works. Sit back and enjoy the show, LOL! Yes, we know we're control freaks...

    Don't worry, you can easily change the EPG source settings after, via a quick BLUE > BLUE key sequence, where you will find our very user-friendly and dynamic Commando EPG Wizard menus.

    GetEPG is fully-compatible (apparently, so Laz says) with the DreamboxUK Database as well. Wooo! And the SgtFlipFlop variety, if you first load them, and then do a 'Scan / Update'.

    German language By popular request from our German freunde, we have added Deutsch sprache support, including all the Extra code that Commando contains. But please remember, we have a 4.0MB JFFS2 var partition, which leaves no room for the usual /var_init folder normally found E1 in root SquashFS.

    Our release is by default a 7.75MB mtd3 Flash w/o Bootloader format for the UK, meaning that you will not see the LANGUAGE prompt at first boot, like you may expect.

    To switch Language to Deutsch: Menu > Settings > OSD > Language > deutsch

    And for you UK users that find yourself in German and don't know how to get back to English (I did this in 2004 in Zg0re Balu from Polish, fcs): Menu > 3 > 6 > Red > english

    Sorry, but our Blue > Blue EPG shell menu for 28.2šE is English only...

    Satellites: Resulting from feedback, requests, and testing from our cousins in North America, Canada, and Australia, we have added the sats for these regions, thanks to (the aptly-named) Satsearching on here.

    Picons: thanks to LraiZer's genius graphical skills, working with only the 16 base colours that are allowed in Neutrino, we proudly present a picons in the Infobar package of over 330 items, most of them with a nice '3D feel' to them, as well... Awesome! 84 of these are symlinks, for Regional and +1 channels, to save some space.

    But he has really pushed the boat out with this package, including the very latesr logo designs from all of the providers. Eye-bleeding pixel-level work- stunning results- thanks, Laz!

    TuxText: Yes- by popular request, this plugin is now embedded in the root partition and fully working. This means sub-titles too, for your audibly disadvantaged visitors,..

    Services - Bouquets - EPG Channel Maps

    Yes, it's all fresh and bang up to date. Don't even think about asking if Sly Sports F1 is in there, regarding Bouquets and Picon and EPG. Naturally, you'll need to be a Sly subsciber to Sly Sports and/or Sly HD in order to actually watch this channel


    Driver support: It seems the latest cheapo clones out of China are shaving pennies off their price, by using a shite Philips tuner. Users are suffering glitching with these units...

    We have a new feature in BLUE > MENU > YELLOW > YELLOW (System Info) that identifies which tuner you have. If it's a Philips, then we have no solution for this problem, sorry. If it says Alps-S - then you're laughing.

    You can try other head.ko drivers one by one in: /var/driver and reboot. LraiZer has protected this, by detecting if the driver you are testing is the infamous Gemini 'Clone Bomb' driver. So don't worry- your box will NOT become a door stop...

    Regional Channels: default services and bouquets are by LraiZer (as always) and are for the North West, even though we happen to know he lives down in Somerset.

    For useful tips on how to customize your C14.5 reflash to YOUR local area, please look at:/var/etc/regional_channels.txt for some time-saving hints 'n tips. Either by FTP view, or in Tuxbox Commander, where the doc is easily readable.

    ***************

    As always, the image is FTA-only and contains no softcams, keys, etc. For Telnet and FTP access, user is root and there is no password (although FTP will need at least one character for the password field).

    For previous versions history, please see this thread

    Enjoy!

    The best Dreambox 500 image just got better.
    Major kudos are due to the developers of this image ,its miles ahead of any other Dreambox 500 image in terms of functionality and user friendliness.
    Getting the receiver to load the epg from the sat stream like enigma 2 boxes is some going .

    Default RadioTimes EPG mode

    There will doubtless many users who, having tried the new stream GetEPG, wish to revert to RadioTimes online EPG, not least for it's capability to grab up to 14 days data for the prime movies and sports channels.

    But many of you RT-EPG fans will have noticed that Auntie's package is a few bricks short of a bungalow. For example, there has been no data for Sky Showcase and Movies 24 for over 3 months now. She got her knickers in a twist over the temporary 'Christmas' name changes, and has never gotten around to fixing this.

    For SONY TV, auntie has a placeholder (2697.dat) but this has always been an empty dat file since the day this channel went on air. As for you Liverpool FC fans, tough! She can't be bothered to give you any epg for LFCTV viewers...

    If none of the above really bothers you, then read no further and leave things as they are at your end. But if you would like to see up to 7 Days of EPG and Long Descriptions for these channels, then LraiZer has galloped to your rescue!

    Add the enclosed files to the folders indicated in the rar attachment, and ensure you chmod 755 the new weekepgjob script. The existing rt-loader script should remain at 755 attributes when you overwrite it with the new one.

    How does it work? LraiZer uses GetEPG to grab the data for these missing RT channels from the stream, and then converts them to pseudo RT dat files in /tmp - where they'll be read by the main rt-loader script following. Very clever!

    What's the best way to use it? LraiZer suggests that the best method of loading RT-EPG is with the following settings:

    • Load RT-EPG at Startup? YES
    • Load RT-EPG on Wakeup? NO
    • Add a PLUGIN timer to REBOOT daily (some random time after 0530)
    Pick a daily reboot time that suits you, ie- when nobody is ever watching telly.


    Can I still use manual RT-EPG load via the GUI? Yes, but do it during the ads, as the first minute of processing switches into radio muzak mode, with some rolling screenies. You'll then be switched back to the channel you were watching, while the rest of RT-EPG loads in the background.

    Thanks to LraiZer for yet another piece of awesome scripting!

    Cheers- AL

    Downloading Cam is as simple as it gets only requires basic knowledge of FTP no harder than editing CCcam.cfg


    EPG again so simple even PaphosAl can use it


    Neutrino is just different to Enigma and not to eveyones taste I can accept that

    lm sure your right Neutrino fans might like it ,, just think it could be easier ,, ie at least one camm installed would help .. lm just looking it a noobs view . l think most would lose interest and move on , even inserting your own channel list isnt easy is it , as its a different save to that dreamedit uses , l know theres not alot u can do with a enigma1 box ie spare space, so the epg is 100% better that pli , just have to play around for a long time to get box to your standard


    my feedback "l wouldnt use this image on my worst enemy's box" was abit over the top

    POSTING IMAGES RULES

    if we included Cams then we would get our hands slapped by most boards


    as a Team like Tuxbox board we do not do that
