VU+ Solo : VIX Apollo.023 VU+ Ferrari V3a

OpenViX Apollo requires a full reflash, you can still use a settings backup taken from OpenViX Zeus or OpenViX Helios (but not from OpenViX 3.0 or earlier).

There have been some changes in AutoBouquetsMaker, you may need to set your providers again.

So what is different in OpenViX Apollo then?

As with OpenViX Zeus the main difference is core of the image or the OE (Open Embedded), this has undergone a lot of changes, updates and fixes (including fixes for the heartbleed bug in openssl). As a user you should not notice any differences between OpenViX Helios and OpenViX Apollo. (i.e. there are no real functional differences.)

OpenViX Helios build 017 will be the final build in the Helios series, and so Apollo takes over the reins.

But why a new image so soon, you just launched Helios?

Basically the recent update of the image OE (Open Embedded) to v 2.2, was very significant. This contains substantial changes and updates that mean you cannot use the online update feature from OpenViX Zeus build 023. Rather than asking users not to use the online update function, we have taken the step of changing the image name to ensure that users perform a fresh flash.

Didnt work. I installed chanel list, cams, TS Panel, removed Ferrari manager. i installed this plugin with force-overwrite command. I created backup with manual console. All went well but box doesn't start after re flashing.

UPDATE: After doing clean reflash, instaled only this plugin and then did a restore from the plugin of the previous backup, then it worked. I restored the box. But this does not entirely solve my problem as i want to do unattended restore and restore directly from USB flashing.
Can TS Panel be the problem ?

I remember a certain Vix Team Member (Sorry no names: Clue his name is the same as one of the more popular XBMC Plugins), QQ'ing** about it breaking the Vix Image.

The Vix team advise against installing Tspanel as it inteferes with system files.

**QQ is an acronym often used in online communication to signify two crying eyes.
------------------------------------

Short version: Yes it can.

Sorry just seen that this was Toysoft's handy work so the above question maybe more better directed at you?

Thanks

Hi Ten

What is the chance of a more recent version of the vix image?

Thanks

I am not sure its possible or that it would be stable enough for every day use on the older ferrari models buddy, will keep an eye out. Also vix have not supported the Solo since version 3.2.

Thanks Ten would appreciate it, I've had this image in use for some time now, I just tried openpli but I don't really like it think I'm going to go back to this. The problem I have with it is I have a duo2 in my livingroom and I used to network mount from that so I can watch recordings on a solo in the bedroom. I cant get samba to install now the feeds are down, tried to manually install samba to no joy. I have a zero in the kitchen that works great network mount to the duo2.

Thanks
Shaun
