    Default Zgemma H Series (H.s H.2s) Openatv5.3 Backup Image

    This Backup Image is for the Newer H series of Zgemma Satellite receivers, it will work on the H.S and H.2s and confirmed working on the H.2H by Hadron @post #116 (requires additional setup for cable see post #119) but hasn't been tested on the H5

    ? Movie Organiser Thanks to Grog @Grog68.xyz **Many Thanks**
    ? USB Gift Importer - Press 'Help' to activated (FTP via PC/Filezilla Not Required anymore)

    You must have 4gb USB drive or a larger USB drive permanently connected if you want to record programs and use the EPG, also the box connect by LAN to the internet.

    Due to this been on DK forums, I won’t give instructions on how to install any lines, all I’ll say is Blue button and second option down then ask google.

    OpenAtv 5.3 Stable Zgemma H series Only Dropbox download link below
    Code:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/oqr6qs459zd2mnq/Openatv5.3%20H%20series%20Backup%20Image.zip?dl=0
    Install Backup image
    1. On PC format USB drive to FAT32 (quick)
    2. Unzip ‘Openatv Backup image.zip’ image
    3. Transfer ‘zgemma’ folder to root of USB drive
    4. Insert USB into SAT box (Rear USB port) and Power on.
    5. Once ‘USB’ displayed on Box a quick press and release ‘standby’ button on box, this will then display ‘FLASH’
    6. Leave box, it should take 5 mins to flash then it will auto boot into BBC 1 HD

    Set Up USB Hard drive for Recording/Time shift and EPG storage
    1. Remove USB Boot drive and Insert your Storage USB drive
    2. Menu-setup-system-storage devices-Initialisation, Select your drive and format it
    3. Menu-setup-system-storage devices-Ext3 to Ext4, Select your drive and change filesystem
    4. Reboot


    AutoBuoquetsMaker (ABM) ie auto channel finder and favs maker
    ABM is already setup for the London Custom Area, with Adult channel/etc hidden .

    If you wish to change Sky UK area from London or to unhid/hid Adult/etc then;
    Menu-setup-service searching-ABM-Update Config Files
    Menu-setup-service searching-ABM-Providers to the following;
    ? Sky UK Area- Scroll right to get ‘your area’ custom ie mine’s Scottish East Custom this will replace all none working HD channels with their working SD conterparts
    ? Menu-setup-service searching- ABM -Hide Bouquets tick/untick as required, green to save
    ? Menu-setup-service searching- ABM-Start Scan, this will add all the relevant channels for your area

    Setting up EPG
    EPG is set to update at 00:01 daily, but the initial download needs to be carried out
    1. Menu-Setup-Epg-EpgImporter
    2. Press 'Yellow' then select 'Yes' (It does take a few seconds to start and the download will goto about 90k+ events)
    3. Ensure Menu-Setup-EPG-settings ‘EPG Location’ is correct ‘/media/hdd’, if says ‘internal’ scroll to ‘/media/hdd’
    4. Menu-Setup-EPG-load/save/delete – save EPG

    **Remember for the EPG and Channel lists to Update daily the Zgemma needs to be in 'standby' at night**
    **If you prefer to turn the Zgemma fully off at night then Menu-Setup-Epg-Epgimport-config and set the update time to a time of your convenience during the day, else the EPG won't update'

    System image & Plugin updates
    System & Plugin updates, I advise only need to be done whenever there is a problem with the Zgemma or if recommend by users on the forum. The majority of the time only major Autobouquetsmaker corrections need to be done ie a Lot of new channels appear and you haven't got them, just do this;
    Menu-setup-service searching-Autobouquetsmaker-Update Config Files then rescan

    For a System update
    menu-setup-software management-software update.

    Default Additional Instructions

    Change Skins
    To Change the default SkyQ skin;

    Menu-Setup-Usage&Gui-Skin Setup

    Select whichever skin you want and click Yes to let the Zgemma reboot

    Slyk HD skin (Orginal sky HD sky clone) change the following setting;
    File List-Menu-Settings and change 'Number of Rows' to '8'

    Change SkyQ Toppick Pictures (EPG/FAV Pictures)
    Bored of the Sky Toppicks channel pictures, these can easily be changed. Press the 'Help' button then;

    If Using the SkyQ skin
    1. Scroll to 'SkyQscrape.sh and Press Green, wait for script to say 'Finished'
    2. Scroll to 'SkyQpicks.sh' and press Green, wait for script to say 'Finished'
    3. Reboot Zgemma

    If Using the Slyk Skin
    1. Scroll to 'Toppicks1.sh and Press Green, wait for script to say 'Finished'
    2. Scroll to 'Toppicks2.sh' and press Green, wait for script to say 'Finished'
    3. Reboot Zgemma

    Automate the Toppicks picture change
    Menu-Info Panel-Cronmanger
    1. Green to add
    Run how often - scroll to 'Daily'
    Time to execute - set to 00:20 or a time of your choosing
    Command type - scroll to 'Predefined'
    Command to run - Scroll to 'SkyQscrape.sh' if you use SkyQ skin or 'Toppicks1.sh' if you Slyk Skin
    Red to Save
    2. Green to add
    Run how often - scroll to 'Daily'
    Time to execute - set to 00:22 (2 mins after Skqscrape/Toppicks1 time)
    Command type - scroll to 'Predefined'
    Command to run - Scroll to 'SkyQpicks.sh' if you use SkyQ skin or 'Toppicks2.sh' if you Slyk Skin
    Red to Save


    MicroSD Card Users

    I only use a 128gb MicroSD card for my storage, it requires a bit more to setup;
    1. Flash your Backup Inage and when the front display 'FLSH' changes to 'Boot' switch the box off with the white power switch on the back of the box.
    2. Remove your USB Drive and Insert your MicroSD Card and power up the Zgemma via the white power switch on the back of the box.
    3. Menu-setup-system-Storage devices-initialisation select your Micro SD card and Press Red
    4. Menu-Info Panel-Plugins-Mount Manager Press Yellow to Unmount your SD Card then Press Red to set as Hdd (your should see the mount change to /Media/hdd)
    5. Reboot
    6. As your Micro SD is now mounted as the system Hard drive, you shouldn't need to change any locations Recordings, crossepg or EPG (Crossepg will show /media/mmc*** that's OK)
    7. Carry on setting up your Zgemma using the guide at post#1 continuing from 'AutoBuoquetsMaker (ABM) ie auto channel finder and favs maker'

    If your Zgemma Freezes during Step 3 Instialisation then you will have to Format it via a PC with SD card slot/adaptor, google 'Linux EXT4 format windows' or 'Minitool partition wizard' to get the required software.

    Swapfile
    Also as the H series is a lot faster than an original series, I have decided to not use a swapfile for normal Satellite use, however, if using IPTV or Kodidirect would advice setting up a 64mb swap.

    Alternate Picons
    The Glass Picons complement the SkyQ skin well, but if you want a different set of picons ie MK's colourful and bright set then do this;
    skypremiere.jpgskyspnewshq.jpg1_0_1_1134_7DC_2_11A0000_0_0_0.jpg1_0_1_132B_7E7_2_11A0000_0_0_0.jpg

    1. Download the picon.zip and unzip the folder
    Code:
    http://www.openvix.co.uk/index.php/downloads/picons-channel-icons/mk-220x132-snp-picons/
    2. Weed through the picon folder and remove all 'none working' HD picons, Incorrect referenced picons ie Animalplnt as the correct one is Animalplanet etc, Vmedia picons and picons for any bouquets you don't use ie if you dont use the 'Adult channels' remove all the 'named adult picons'. This will reduce the size of the picon folder, otherwise it will fill up your zgemma's internal flash with unwanted picons.
    3. FTP to zgemma's picon folder location /usr/share/enigma2/picon and delete all the files in that folder
    4. FTP over the picons in your already weed out picon folder to picon folder on the zgemma /usr/share/enigma2/picon
    5. reboot

    IPTV for Zgemma

    Via userbouquet.favourites.tv file
    1. FTP your userbouquet.favourites.tv file to /etc/enigma2
    2. Reboot Zgemma
    3. Press 'Fav' you will now see your new 'IPTV' folder

    Via .m3u file
    1. Install Esettings+ in your PC and start Esettings+
    Code:
    http://www.esettingsplus.altervista.org/
    2. Click on Configure and change 'Language' to English and Configure your profile for your Zgemma ie IP address, user 'root' password leave blank, then press 'test connection' to see if all well, then close Config box
    3. Click on the 'Arrow up' box Read decoder
    4. In the Right Box, Right Click and select 'Insert Bouquet - TV' give it a name ie 'IPTV' and save
    5. In the main window scroll down to the last channel and right click 'IPTV Import (m3u)' press 'download' and select your .m3u on your PC
    6. Right Click on the first IPTV channel shown and click select 'Select IPTV Channels' the click 'Applies'
    7. All your IPTV channels will be added to the bottom off the main window, click 'IPTV' on the Top Right Bouquet window
    8. Then Drag all your 'IPTV' Channels to the bottom Right window
    9. Then Click the 'Arrow Down' box Write to Decoder
    10. Your Zgemma will Reboot, Press Fav and you will now see your new 'IPTV' bouquet


    Kodidirect - kodi for E2 boxes

    Kodidirect works OKish on the H series, so here's a guide to install it, would advise setting up a 64mb swapfile.

    1. Menu-Info Panel-Plugins-Swapmanager
    Green to Create 64mb
    Red to Activate
    Yellow to Autostart
    2. Menu-plugins Green to download plugins and 'Extensions' and find 'Kodidirect' press ok to install
    3. Menu-Kodidirect to start Kodidirect and press green to install addons then 'install from kodidirect list'
    The following are my preferred addons and why, on installing an addons you might have to enter reenter kodidirect, just part of the install proceedure
    Movies-Exodus for your movies and TV boxsets
    TV-Ukturks for everything
    IPTV-phstreams (AKA Pheonix) for everything
    Sport-Sportsmix, Sportsdevil and Castway for all your sports streams

    4. Once installed, restart Kodidirect and you should see all your new addon streams ready to access.

    All these streams are free and can get hammered when live sports is on, so it can be hit or miss if it will work, one way around this is to use a paid for/subscription service ie Sportsmania
    1. Download the sportmania plugin for kodi
    Code:
    https://github.com/Willowsportsmania/SportsMania/tree/master/zips/plugin.video.sportsmania
    2. Unzip the folder and FTP the folder to /usr/lib/enigma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/KodiDirect/plugins
    3. Start Kodidirect and enter sportmania and add your login details - details on how to get a login will be displayed on the Sportmania Icon, Don't ask me

    Edit AutobouquetsMaker to Keep Custom channel changes on rescan

    Moved a few channels to your liking then ABM on rescan but them back to default, have custom bouquets that won't update or just want to delete those duplicate Irish SS1-4 from the main 'Sports' Bouquet then these instructions are for you
    1. Unzip the attached and follow the how to guide.

    For the Newer Zgemma series ie H.s H.2s using chabs skyQ skin then;
    1. FTP the following file from your zgemma to your PC desktop /usr/share/enigma2/skyQ/skin.xml
    2. On your PC open skin.xml with an xml editer and find the following;
    <screen name="NumberZap" title="Channel" position="40,430" size="440,252" backgroundColor="transparent" flags="wfNoBorder" transparent="0" zPosition="-4">
    <ePixmap name="Number Zap" position="0,0" size="440,252" pixmap="SkyQ/Backgrounds/zap.png" zPosition="0" transparent="1" alphatest="blend" />
    <widget name="number" position="323,73" size="100,30" transparent="1" font="Bold; 24" valign="center" halign="right" backgroundColor="transpBlack" zPosition="2" foregroundColor="white" Wrap="1">
    </widget>
    <widget name="servicename" position="16,61" size="300,60" backgroundColor="transpBlack" transparent="1" font="Bold; 28" valign="center" halign="center" zPosition="2">
    </widget>
    <widget name="NowEventTitle" backgroundColor="transpBlack" halign="right" position="16,121" size="300,35" font="Regular; 24" noWrap="1" transparent="1" zPosition="3" />
    </screen>
    3. Change the Sizes and Positions to suit and save the skin.xml file
    4. FTP your new skin.xml file from your PC to your Zgemma /usr/share/enigma2/skyQ/
    5. Reboot

    Yes, that is a pain, unfortunately it's a skin coding error which chabs (author) knows about, he says he'll fix it in the next release, once he does I'll update the image.

    Hi,

    Thanks for this. I have a new zgemma S2 box I want to remove the old image from it and add this one, for some reason though when I use the "factory reset" option the old image remains. I have tried inserting a new image using the USB method described above but my box doesn't pick up the USB, I have tried a few other sticks to no avail.

    Any advice would be appreciated??

    Martin,

    Thanks for the image, everything went well. But I have a problem with Sky Q skin. The Madiaplayer plugin does not work with this skin. When I try to load it, it just crashes OpenAtv and reboots.

    I have the crash log, looks like couple of things are missing for the Madiaplayer (if you want I can post the crash log). When I switch to MatrixHD skin Madiaplayer work well.

    Do you have a Mediaplayer working with Sky Q skin?

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    No, and I need mediaplayer to play movies from my Network drive, hopefully chabs will release v1.3 to fix all the bugs in his skin. At present I'm testing kiddac's Vskin HD and found it better, so using that as my default skin now. Once Chabs releases V1.3 I will test it out and decide whether to change the image skin.
