New VIX Image - v2.0
07/02/2011 - Open PLi 2.0

From VIX Team

Based on Open PLi 2.0

Yes, you read that correct. We have changed source (hence the long delay in release) to the Open PLi base. Many thanks to them for allowing us to use their base :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:. If they wish to see any of the source code (without ViX specific enhancements of course ), just pm andyblac or Sicilian, and we will gladly send them on to them.

Since this is a completely new base, you will have to do a full fresh flash. Online updates will not work!!! Also, you will not be able to restore your settings from ViX 1.3 to 2.0. You will have to manually configure your box, as in testing, this has proven to cause many problems and instabilities in the box!

New Enhancements in v2.0

As already stated, this version of the release has a completely new base. This has required a lot of recoding to get the ViX enchancements working in the new PLi base... Of course, the image has the same enhancements as previous images, apart from some new additions

All new version number - Yup, we've moved on to version 2.0! This has nothing to do with the fact that the PLi version is 2.0... We felt that the addition of the dvb-t (wait for it keep reading ) warranted a brand new version number. This also puts the duo and solo in line number wise!
VIX Duo 2.0 Bootlogos, Radio Logos and Shutdown Logos (thanks again Silver )
Core changes to plugins and code to allow ViX features to work on Open PLi
USB DTT - The one you've all been waiting for! To install dvb-t, you just need to go to the plugin menu, and select the stick you have. This will then install the drivers for your stick*. You will then need to restart your receiver. Once restarted, go to Menu -> Setup -> Service Starting -> Tuner Config, and you should notice Tuner C as your USB DTT...
ViX Quick Event Info - This is the new way to receive the event info on the ViX image. Press OK button once to get the info bar up, press it once more (i.e. a second time) to receive the information about what is currently showing...
New ViX Single EPG (with channel preview) - The is new and unique to vix, after yuo open the ViX single EPG (short RED) you can view the 7 day epg for that channel, now to see another channels epg, either use the Channel up/down buttons on your remote or just key in the channel number. if you want to preview the channel your currently viewing the EPG for (ie you want to see what the current program is like) just press 'OK' on your remote, this will change to that channel showing you the program in the small video window. if you don't like it, go find another channel to preview by keying in new channel number (or up/down buttons). or if you do like it and want to go fullscreen on it, just press 'OK' again. but if you feel you want to return to the original channel you where watching (whilst still in ViX Single EPG) just press 'EXIT" button, this will return to where you where before you entered ViX Single EPG)
QuickEPG Updated to include channel preview - works as above
Debug Logs - This is to enable a better idea of what's been happening with the image for any crashes ... If your box crashes, check the /home/root/ folder, and look for a file that has the date/time modified as to when the box crashed. This can help find any bugs/issues easier To enable/disable this option, go to the ViX Settings. To clear the debug logs, choose yes. This will just delete the debug logs once. If you want to delete the logs again, just go back in to the menu, and change to yes again...
Bigger skin choice - OK, lots of people wanted a bigger choice of skins ... we've added lots more skins Also, most skins made for PLi 2.0 should work in ViX 2.0 also. If there are certain parts of the skin not edited for the ViX format (such as ViX menu, ViX Devices Manager, etc), then this should still work just fine. These menus have been hard coded to ensure that they will work if nothing included in to the skin...
Added option to disable ViX coloured buttons - This should ensure that if users want to use MultiQuick button plugin, it should work without issue
All of the PLi enhancements - This includes the infamous subtitles requested by many As well as auto audio/subtitle language selection, etc, etc).
Please also note that USB / ESATA devices NEED there mount points setup in Device Manager (green button whilst in Device Manager) in order for them to work correctly.

* Supported USB DVB-T:
Avermedia Volar HD Nano
Sundtek Media TV Pro
WinTV Nova T

Bug Fixes in v2.0

Motor moving image does not display - Fixed by Vu in latest drivers.
Installing other skins may cause the box to get into an infinite loop - Since moving over to the PLi image, changes have been made to the way the image works with skins. Now, most skins created for the PLi image should work on the ViX image.

Few problems with WebIf Remote Control coloured buttons in timeshift/playback mode - E.G. The blue button decides to fast forward, not show the extensions menu.
Network mounts not remounting if the source goes offline - You should be able to go in to the network menu, and choose "Mount Again", but this doesn't seem to be working.
