  • he new OpenViX version 6.3 image is based on OpenViX enigma2 and OE-Alliance-core branch 5.2.The easiest way to flash latest OpenViX image is to do the following:

    Download the image to your receiver’s storage device
    Blue button > ViX > Image manager > Yellow (Downloads) > Select OpenViX > Select image version > Press OK
    You will see the download statusSecond:
    Once downloaded, you should still be in Image manager and the latest image should be highlighted.
    Ensure you have the correct image selected then press the Blue button (Flash)
    The new image will flash and box will reboot when completed
    In install wizard you can then restore settings and plugins from OpenViX 6.2 (and earlier) series images. This will restore most things to how you had them before.


    There are many guides to flash/restore. For example

    OpenViX 6.3 builds on the success of the 6.x series and aims to bring you the important things such as improved stability and bug fixes, rather than gimmicks.

    The main change from version 6.2 to version 6.3 has been to upgrade from oe-alliance-core branch 5.1 to 5.2. The OE (Open Embedded) core on which the image is built has also undergone major changes, updates and fixes, and uses the latest bitbake version. Version 6.3 uses Python version 3.11 which is on average 25% faster than Python 3.10 when measured with the pyperformance benchmark suite. For more info on Python 3.11 major speed improvement see the official documentation. https://docs.python.org/3/whatsnew/3.11.html

    Contains experimental FCC (fast channel change) code for hardware that supports this (Vu+ models with FBC tuners).

    Please upgrade as soon as possible. We do not maintain previous versions.
    Feeds for the previous version (6.2) will be maintained for a short period only to allow users to upgrade to the new image. Feeds for all other previous versions have already been removed. Sorry for any inconvenience but resources are limited and we cannot maintain parallel versions. We have worked hard to make the upgrade process as easy as possible for our users. These days upgrading from the previous version is painless. Just follow the instructions at the top of this page and you will be up and running with the new version in a few short minutes.
