Team ViX Enchancements

New Features

BackupManager - Lets you create scheduled backups of your system files (not full Image like Image Manager).
RestoreWizard - This a wizard that detects and restores you backup (created with BackupManager), with option to restore your extra plugins.
ImageManager - Major code rewrite, now handled by Job task, view progress of image creation in extension list (blue button)
ViX Menu - Added PackageManagement & Software Update, so SoftwareManager is now not needed. It is also now translatable into different languages.
NetworkInadyn - Add new network setup screen Inadyn.
OScam/CCam Info - Added options to show in Extension List. (the Menu item will now only show IF the softcam is installed).
OnlineVersionCheck - Added option to disable online check by setting check value to '0' and set a maximun timer to 48 hours.
Recording List - Added a new option in MovieList Settings to use a "Slim" list like the "Slim" Channel slection screen.
EPG Graphical - This is now in core, no longer a plugin (was ViXEPG), added the option to show Bouquets on launch.
EPG Menu - Add Load/Save item, this allow you reload/save the EPG cache.
E2-Plugin's - Updated all to plugin's to the latest GIT from PLi.
ZAP Timer - This will create a zap timer (rather than a recording timer) for the selected event in the EPG/Single EPG etc. To activate this, select the event from the EPG, and do a long button press on the record button. This is a non-configurable timer, so will use all defaults, and just set the record to a zap, rather than a record. When adding a zap timer, the clock icon will show on the previous event. This is to do with the pre-start timer.


SwapManager - Code cleanup, for better activation/detecion.
About Screen - Updated infomation screen, better layout, more information. VFD now shows image version.
EPG Search - Fix a bug where the yellow button just opened a blank EPGSearch screen instead of actually perfoming a search on the current event. Also, added 'Show History' to long yellow button press whilst in EPGSearch.
EPG Cache - Updated so now it does not require 2 reboots in order to use new location.
EventView - Fix GS on opening Similar List.
Network Link State - fixed Vu+ machine network link state.
PluginBrowser - fix it not installing picons.
ShoutCast - Fixed plugin.
SoftcamManager - Add Timercheck for OScam to support no username or password in Webif, fix GS when pressing coloured buttons, if no softcams installed, also code clean up.
Translation - Updated NL language files.
Permantent TimeShift fix and embed PTS.
Updated KeyMap - Fixes a few MoviePlayer remote control issues.
ViX HD skin - PNG fix for selected items in lists, Tweaked the Jobview screen, 'New Online Version' icon now flashes to remind you of an update.
VIXEPG fix - The < > keys for jumping +/- 1 day.

Hello Guy's

thanks guys

i'd biast towards VIX as i'm a beta tester for them and a admin on theor forum but i'd say try a few images to see which you like. as for flashing the box it's very easy to do with a USB stick and i'm sure there is a tutorial here some where. as for bricking the box. yes and no. these boxes are almost indestructible but always read the instructions and ask questions where you need to and you will be fine.

Put vix image on usb stick, unzip it, copy the main folder and sub folders across to your usb stick, power off your vu duo, stick usb in front slot of vu duo, power up, check out the front display, should tell you when its finished installing.

Var/Etc is for enigma 1 based receivers you are now using a enigma 2 based receiver so the folder now is just /ETC

I have VIX installed on my Vu+duo and BlackHole on my solo.
I have been running both images for 1 year with no problem with CCcam 2.1.4 VIX and 2.1.3 on BH solo.

I can assure you both images are faily stable, But still get green/Black log screens from time to time.
I have been Imformed that the bugs will be fixed.
There is always a chance that a IPK plugin will not be compatible with eather image.
Overall I think the Vix image is the best for EPG stability.
BH looks the part and works well with TS_pannel, (if you use the right links for the Vu+ range.
