New 4D PLi images 28-05-2014

New images for all of the TM OE receivers are available from the software tab above. theres no changelogs available yet, as usual, but theyre available for download NOW :)

OpenViX Apollo is born

DISTRO_NAME ?= “openvix”
DISTRO_TYPE ?= “release”
Less than 2 months after the eagerly awaited, all new, but exactly the same, OpenViX Zeus, which after only 3 weeks was replaced by the all new, but exactly the same OpenViX Helios, now, after 4 weeks, the first official build of the all new, and probably exactly the same, OpenViX Apollo.
Its not available for download (yet) but when it is available, i wouldnt expect any huge fantastical changes to jump out at you, as its another ‘behind the scenes’ changes in the updates

For pheonix

In response to the following:

We have yet to release the image due to some serious driver bugs, but it has been leaked again and can be found with a google search, be mindful if you do decide to use this leaked version we will not offer any support for it. ALL questions or support requests must be left with the person who again decided to make a name for him self rather than putting peoples own bought hardware first as usual.

Last year, it was agreed with your organ grinder that I would not post ANYTHING to do with ViX before being publicly available, and that you would be kept under control with the way you continuously post on forums slating people over things you dont really understand. Your issues with another new coder then started spilling into forums, and i made it fully obvious that i was nothing to do with any leaks that i was being blamed for being part of in public. I was then recently further attacked in another thread before the forums admin closed and cleaned the thread.

For a long time, I kept to my side of the bargain. I leave your lot alone, and you leave me alone. YOU broke that deal, just like your mouth has run away with you again, and you have directed people exactly where to get the image, thanks for the hits ;)

Stick to what your superiors agreed you would stick to, and things like this will stop happening (from me at least). If you, or anyone else, wants to control what I post on my website, feel free to make a genuine offer to purchase the site from me. If you (pheonix) want to have a little influence on what i DON’T post on my website, then get your posts ‘authorised’ before they cause you any more problems in the future


OpenViX Zeus is finished, Heres Helios instead.

The short lived, much hyped OpenViX Zeus is no more, after only 4 weeks, its been binned. But, have no fear OpenViX lovers, as OpenViX Helios is here instead.

We are not too sure what the differences are, and just like with the switch from OpenViX 3.0 to Zeus, all thats being said is that its ‘behind the scenes changes’ (insert conspiracy theories here)

So, in the software section, youll find the new Helios, which is the same as the old Zeus, which was the same as the older 3.0


New PLi based images, new kernel

New images have been uploaded for the OE range of receivers, with a new 3.9.7 linux kernel. Download them from the Software tab above. Not yet available anywhere else on the internet.

The software section will also be  updated with the latest version of the ViX Zeus images, and other available images over the coming weekend

Loads of new updates

Todays been busy for Technomate receivers. As well as the expected release of openvix Zeus for the linux OE receivers, and the unexpected 002 release a few hours later (good old vix updates, theyre like busses, the last one was in december, then you get a few all at the same time)

Other updates have been for the following receivers

TM6800HD Super, TM6900HD Super, TM8000Ci HD Combo, TM5302, TM5402HD, TM5402HD M2, TM5502Ci, TM7100, TM7102, TM6902, the new TM-F3/5 and the TM-MINI

updates include (not on every model)

iptv, BISS, 27.5W, VoD, 19e, 15W and more

all available via the software tab at the top of the page


Vix zeus build 002 is released, already…….

In true vix fashion, less than 12 hours after the ‘great release’ an update requiring a complete new image is released.

Theres a surprise

Openvix Zeus officially released

Openvix Zeuse images are now officially available. We have been playing with these for a while, and the end user experience is the same as openvix 3.0, but, this will be the only vix firmware to receive updates in the future, so if you want to continue to use ViX, youll have to update. The bootloaders will need to be updated as per the last blog post, but, all images are available from the software tab at the top of the page

New 4.0 bootloaders

The OpenATV 4.0 images have been available for a while, and recently popping up in random places, is the vix4 (OpenVix Zeus) image, but untill now, bootloaders were unavailable for these images to work properly. We are just about to upload bootloaders that have been tested, and work, on both the OpenATV 4.0 image, and the OpenVix Zeus images.

Only use these bootloaders if you are intending on using one of these newer images, as you will not be able to boot into an existing PLi based, or Openvix3.0 image after flashing these, unless you reflash with an older bootloader.

As usual with this type of update, use at your own risk. We killed 2 receivers before finding this working software (which also brought them back to life)
