    ViX Team ET6x00 Image v2.3 - 15/12/2011

    ew VIX Image ET6x00 - v2.3 15/12/2011 - Open ViX 2.3

    rom VIX Team

    Enigma: 13-12-2011. Enigma Plugins: 13-12-2011. GCC Version: 4.4.4. Kernel Version: 3.1.0. Drivers: 2011-12-12.

    This image requires the latest bootloader (attached to this post) to be flashed. This is because Xtrend have changed the way the drivers work. So, before updating your image, you will need to first flash the bootloader, then flash the new image. Flashing of new bootloader only takes a few seconds, so once flashing's completed, then just turn off the box, transfer the new image to the usb stick, and flash with that. Also, it is recommended to NOT use older images with this new boot loader, as this may result in a bricked box.



    Because of a lot of changes behind the scenes of the image and building, you will not be able to perform an online update. A full flash is required for this version of ViX image. However, don't forget that you can use the Backup Manager to create backups of your current settings, and then upon flashing (as long as the location you stored you backup is attached), all your settings and plugins (from feeds) will be reloaded!
    This revision of the image has undergone many different builds, hours and hours of coding/fixing, and we hope that you are now happy to reflash with the latest ViX image! :D

    eam ViX Enchancements

    New Features
    Updated to kernel 3.1.0 - This new kernel is much faster and better than the previous kernel, and finally you all get to test it if you held off updating to other images. If you did update, you can finally come back to the ViX image ;)
    Added items to the Information Screen
    - Added Devices and System Information to Menu -> Information. In Devices, you get all the information about connected devices on your box (HDD, USB and Network Shares), and System Information will show you your memory on your box (Swap, Free memory etc). See screenshots below for more information.
    Added OSD Settings
    - This replaces the overscan option within the ViX image. Go to Menu -> Setup -> System -> OSD -> OSD Setup, and ensure the screen fills your TV set exactly to ensure that all menu options are shown correctly for your TV.
    Added support for HDMI-CEC
    - This image now allows you to control your box using your tv remote. Remember, this is still experimental at the moment, and can work differently between different brands of TV makes/models.
    Added uShare
    - Allow the box to be detected by your DLNA devices that support this protocol. This can be configured under Menu -> Setup -> System -> Network -> uShare Setup.
    Added MiniDLNA
    - Same as uShare, but some people were having problems with uShare, so we have added a different version for people to use.
    Added AFP
    - The Apple Fileshare Protocol makes it easy for your OSX devices to find your box and use the box natively within the OS. This can be configured from Menu -> Setup -> System -> Network -> AFP Setup.
    Added EPG Automatic Refresh
    - This is useful for members who keep a single EPG datasource on a network share with multiple boxes. In Menu -> Setup -> System -> EPG -> Settings, you have the option to choose a network location (as long as configured within the Mount Manager). If you use this, you might want to update the EPG data from this location automatically. So now you can using the Automatic Refresh option.
    Added Automounts option
    - This allows the box to automatically recreate network mounts. If you've had times where the NFS of CIFS server has been restarted, or lost power etc, then you'll know that your box cannot access this network share. Well, as long as you have configured the share through the Mount Manager, then you can configure the Automount to automatically remount the share as often as you like by going to Menu -> Setup -> System -> Network -> Devices -> MountManager.
    Default Skin Change
    - The Default skin has been changed from ViX HD to ViX Day HD. Another ViX skin has been developed for download from the plugin server under the ViX section, called ViX Night HD. This is for those who want a darker skin for their image. See the screenshots below for comparisons between the two. Please report any skin issues you may find with the ViX Night HD skin. We think we have them all covered, but can't be too sure...
    Many plugins translated/made translatable
    - Allows the plugins to display correctly the information in your own language (as defined on original setup). Deleted a number of plugins - Due to the "war on licences", a number of plugins whose license has changed, has been reverted to the non-licensed version of the plugin, or had to be removed from the image indefinitely.
    Added seekbar functionality to the image
    - Allow you to seek within a recording playback to where you would like to be within the playback. To utilise this, please hold down the > buttons on your remote, and the seekbar will appear at the top. Use the arrow keys on the remote to choose where you would like to seek to in the playback, and press OK to start playback from this point.
    Added Image Download to Image Manager
    - This allows you to download the latest full image from the server, and flash it to your box (Vu Only). To access this, go to the Image Manager from with ViX menu, and press the help button. This will list all available images to download.
    Added playback support for FLV files
    - Now you can add FLV files to your recordings drive and play them natively within the system.
    Lots more under the hood updates/enhancements
    - A few menu options and screens have become more integrated to their respective menus. For example, the Recording Paths menu is no longer required, as Timeshift Path is defined in Timeshift Setup, and Recording Path in Recording Setup.

    Tweaked SoftCam manager.
    Corrected a number of plugins.
    Updated network components, including better support for WiFi.
    Updated translatability; updated German & Dutch translations.
    Hidden several ViX-core functions from the plugin-browser.

    ET6000 bootloader and how to upgrade

    Before starting the procedure below, ensure that the USB stick is formated FAT32 and has no other files on the stick!

    1) Download the 'et6000-bootloader-20111020' file in the ET6000 menu on this website.
    2) Unzip the downloaded file then 'et5000' and 'et6000' folders will be appeared.
    3) Copy those two folders into the USB Medium

    Insert the USB medium into either USB sockets on the front or rear panel.
    Power Off and Power On the box through the powerswitch at the rear panel of the box.

    After Power On, ET6000 is detecting if there is ET6000 bootloader available on the USB medium.
    When the yellow/orange led shines then there is ET6000 bootloader detected.
    To load the ET6000 bootloader you'll need to press the up button on the frontpanel.
    When the green led will shine together with he yellow/orange led then the box is loading the bootloader.
    Please be patient because it will take couple of minutes to finish upgrading.
    When the yellow/orange led will disappear then the box is finished upgrading the firmware.
    The box will startup automatically after the upgrade is finished.

    During upgrading, please don't unplug power or shut down STB.
    Donít power off within 5 seconds after upgrade is completed.
    The frontpanel has 3 leds: RED, GREEN, YELLOW/ORANGE

    -Important Note-
    Donít upgrade the Bootloader and Firmware at the same time.
    Make sure that in the USB stick only needed files for either Bootloader or Image should be contained while processing for either Bootloader upgrade or Image upgrade.
