I need to know what folder to place the picon files in? I take it i transfer it via the vu control centre? Do i ftp them to a specific folder? I also need to know how to install my newcamb file? I am a relative newbie to all this. I used the f5s before so im not a complete beginner. So far i have be able to install vix, new skin and channel list. Just need a little help now with these other two and i'll be good to go.

Go into setup of your image. There you will find where the picon folder is. The best you can do is to change that to usb. After that you can transfer your picons via ftp tool to that folder. Give´s you more space on you flash.

Use FTP to transfer Picons to the folder:

Code:

If the folder does not exist then just transfer the complete 'picon' folder into:

Note: Make sure the picons go into the picon folder.

Not sure what you mean by newcamb file? EMU or Nline?

EMU should be installable from Addons Feeds.
NLine will go into cfg file but into which and where it is stored depends on which EMU and image you use.

If installing to USB/HDD then create a symlink to point to the chosen location in the above.

e.g.:
Code:

or
Code:

Note: for usb above may be mounted as 'sdb1'

FYI: You can also map a drive in explorer on a Windows PC and use that to move/copy files across, edit files etc.

Hi
Use an USB, instead of using your STB flash memory.

So, use a usb pen formated fat 32, go to your STB devices manager and map the usb like /media/usb . Use a Ftp program and go to /media/usb under this create a directory picon go to / media/usb/picon and put your picon files there.

Don.t for get to reboot on mounting the pen and reboot upon upload files to the STB.

Best regards

Alright guys, i have everything setup other than the connection to the server.

The two files i have are 'newcamb.list' & 'mg_cfg' , i can also use a CCcam.cfg file although i've never had to use it in the past, the newcamb.list file was all i ever needed.

I used a skybox f5s in the past and all i had to do was install the newcamb.list file and that was it.

I'm running openvix with the Fraggle121 sky skin

I have ftp the 2 files to var/keys and went to the softcam option on the menu but thats as far as i get, there is no information showing in softcam.

Am i missing something obvious or what?

Is there a way that i can key the file information in myself?

Ok in the vix addons feeds (menu >Plugins >Green) you will find softcams then mgcamd 1.38 to install, after this it should show in softcam manager if any probs let us know mate.

They can be downloaded here.

Or use the built in Autobouquets feature to generate one for your region.
