    Default BLACK HOLE 2.0.0 OE 2

    New Black Hole images released!

    BLACK HOLE 2.0.0 OE 2

    The Black Hole Image 2.0.0 is completely new and based on the new Vu+ OE. We used the name OE 2.0 only to maintain a tradition started by DMM, but in reality OE 2.0 does not mean anything. We could call it OE 3.0 or 4.0.
    This is because the new version of OE doesn't have a numbering system, as it is updated continuously and is dynamically linked to the new Vu+ OE.
    The Black Hole image 2.0.0 is the result of a long process of coding and testing.
    During the transition to Version 2.0.0 the Black Hole Team has created a dedicated server to support the image that is now live and available to users.

    ? Black Hole official feeds (for updating the image on-line)
    ? Black Hole Addons server (a new server with new addons plugins for OE 2.0)
    ? Black Hole feeds plugins (official E2 compiled plugins for the Black Hole and accompanied by a detailed description)
    ? Black Hole feeds settings (settings packages)
    As for the details of the updates due to the transition to the new OE version the entire subsystem of the image has been updated and this means that the image has a new engine.

    WHAT IS NEW?

    In reality there are too many changes and updates to list, but as most are not "visible" to "an end user" we will just list the important ones that you can see and will use.

    ? ONLINE BLACK HOLE UPDATE FEATURE
    Green panel> Addons> Online Black Hole image update.

    The Black Hole image is now fully upgradeable online. With this function, you can now keep the Black Hole image installed up to date. For example, the release of new drivers from Vu+ and also in the daily work that is done by the team in their Vu+ Git. The Black Hole team will follow the daily development work of Vu+, and will provide a regular update of the image.

    ? COMPLETE TRANSLATION OF THE BLACK HOLE IMAGE
    Starting with version 2.0.0 the Black Hole image is fully translatable. The image already contains a complete translation in Italian. All language files available will be posted on the board to be fully translated by any users who want to make their contribution.

    ? RESTRUCTURING MAIN MENU
    The main menu of the Black Hole has been restructured and enriched with new items, to offer a more convenient and easier access to all features of the image.

    ? ADDONS SERVER
    The addons server has been renovated. As you know plugins for the new OE 2.0 are NOT compatible with the previous OE 1.6 versions, the new OE uses an updated version of Python> 2.7. All plugins on the addons server have been removed and / or replaced with new plugins that are compatible with the new version.

    ? FEEDS PLUGINS
    Green panel> Addons> Addons Download Manager> Black Hole Feeds Plugins.

    In addition to the plugins on the addons server, now we have available a separate section for about 80 classic Enigma2 plugins which in the past often did not work due to incompatibility with version or architecture (e.g. BitrateViewer etc. ..). All of these plugins have now been updated to work with the Black Hole images and are available in the feeds panel.

    The Black Hole team has also added a little description for each plugin to help you understand what they do and where they are located.

    ? ONLINE FEEDS SETTINGS UPDATE
    Green panel> Addons> Online Feeds Settings update.

    This new feature lets you keep your settings up to date if you choose one of the packages in the panel. The Black Hole server actually searches the servers automatically checking for updates of settings and will automatically package them and make them available in the panel as they become available. When the user enters the panel, The Black Hole image will automatically check the version of installed settings and proceed to the update.

    ? OPTION TO DISABLE EIT FOR EPG AND EVENTS
    Main menu -> Epg Panel -> Global Settings.

    The EIT (Event Information Table) is a form of immediate epg which usually covers only two events (now and next), which usually is very capable and functional. However, this form of epg also tends to overwrite the epg that is in the cache, although it is often more accurate and complete.

    But for those who are used to downloading a full epg package with CrossEPG or one of the other methods it can be very useful to disable the EIT so that the epg is not overwritten.

    ? AUTOMATIC AUDIO LANGUAGE SELECTION
    Main menu -> Black Hole Apps -> Auto language selection setting

    This feature was originally implemented by the Pli team.
    The function allows you to set a list of four preferred languages that will be automatically selected when you switch to channels with multiple audio tracks.
    This is very useful when zapping channels with foreign languages that also broadcast the original soundtrack. In this case it will automatically select the preferred language. The list is in order of importance so if your first language choice isn't an option it will switch to your second or third choice.
    You also have the option to give preference to Ac3 soundtracks if they are available.

    If you set "Prefer audio stream stored by service" to "No" when you visit a channel and you select a different language then by default the software will remember that preference, however with Autolanguage when you next zap back to that channel it will automatically select the language of your choice set above.

    The Blackhole 2.0.0 image has now been superceded with the latest 2.0.1 Rev.A which BH recommend you to update to, I has to be a new flash as the revision cannot be updated via online.


    I am currently using the new 2.0.1 A version on my Solo2 without a hitch so far and i can confirm that 1 channel and icefilms are available via the addon downloads menu so should work also.

    I did find a 1 channel plugin for Python 2.7 which works fine, not tried the one off the downloads as I believe that's the Python 2.6 version.

    I can confirm that BBC I Player, TSPanel, Autobouquets and CrossEPG plugins all work OK.

    The link on page is broken and the latest Blackhole is 2.0.6 What version are you using just now and what box and are you using a clone or a genuine box and if a clone what version are you on. If it's not broken don't fix it.

    How do I install Blackhole? I have an Openbox S6000HD running OpenPli and I'm still finding my way round the system and would be interested in a simple guide to user interfaces for my box.

    Thanks very much for this guide - it looks very useful.

    Having said that I fell at the first hurdle being unable to login via telnet.... the userid/password root/solo does not work.

    Just wondered if there is any way to to set this up via the local menu .... Maybe I need to enable remote access in some way...
