Grogbuild FreeRange 2018-12-11

the new grogbuild for all boxes

  1. Grogbuild Flashes your box with OpenATV or OpenVIX for you

    We are pleased to announce we are the first build installed via command line that does not require you to flash the box with openATV or openVix before installing the build, the GrogBuild Freerange Installation now asks you which you want to use as a base build (if OpenVIX is available for your box) and then flashes the latest stable image for you. Assuming that you have your USB/HDD connected to the box (used for recordings etc) then you can use this method.
    See the Installation Option 1 in...
  2. added IPTV plugins during installation

    during installation you can now choose to install e2m3u2Bouquet plugins and enter the details provided by your provider.

  3. added vfdcontrol plugin

    It appears that ATV 6.2 has messed up the led display on the zgemma (maybe others) and the vfdcontrol plugin is now required.

    Grogbuild FreeRange now comes with it installed and the settings should be correct but if you want to play with the different LED display options then press the menu button and select Setup -> Usage & Gui -> Display -> LED display settings.
  4. change box hostname during setup

    I have added a new prompt to the setup script, now if you don't opt to restore your settings you will be prompted to enter a new box hostname, if you wish to keep it as the default hostname just hit the enter key when prompted.

  5. now works on OpenVIX

    Grogbuild FreeRange will (should) now work on OpenVIX. I have tested this on my VU+, I have not tested on any box that OpenVIX does not support such as a zgemma.

    Also prompts you for netID and Sky/FreeSat regions during installation if not restoring from a backup.
