    OK. Basically u need a usb or hard drive that can be wiped and devoted to the box.
    That will store program guide and recordings and timeshift to rewind TV etc.
    4gb is minimum I'd recommend. But more is better.
    Once image is flashed and u edit ur newcamd.list file in usr/keys or CCcam.cfg in usr/keys with FileZilla.
    Get the permanent USB/hdd onto a PC and quick format it.

    download here >>CLICK HERE<<

    Flashing the box
    flash with the zgemma folder only on a formatted usb stick turn of box using back power button insert usb in back and switch on using back button then box should change from usb to flash.

    Plug one dish cable into tuner A(sat). And the second cable into B(vm).
    You will need to blug kenable F Type Screw Connector Socket to RF Coax Aerial Male Adapter to plug into tuner b

    To install picons if you want

    you will need to download srp picons because snp picons will not work

    Picons are the little channels logos you see on some screen shots and these instructions guide you through adding them to your EPG and info bars.

    First of all check that you have no previous picons installed and if so remove them

    From full screen TV:
    Press the Portal button -> Red button (remove plugins) -> Highlight +Picons and press OK
    Now any picon lists you see in that section need removing. Highlight, press ok and select yes.
    Once you have removed any existing picon sets exit right back to full screen TV.

    From full screen TV:
    Press the Portal button -> Green button to download plugins -> Highlight +picons -> Press the OK button

    Scroll right down the list and and choose 100x60 snp light on transparent picons Press OK, Press OK again. Highlight and Select your external USB device

    This takes a little while to download and extract due to there being 7000+ picons and may appear to have crashed. How long it takes will also depend on the speed of your USB device. While you are waiting be patient wait and wait some more.
    When you are returned to the menu, Press the Exit button twice to return to full screen TV

    Now press your EPG button and in the top left hand corner your should see the channel logo. It will also show up when you press the OK button from full screen TV

    slyk1hd included with epg tabs {No Mods} just set it as your skin – menu, setup, usage and gui skin setup

    Kiddacs slyq included just set as your skin – menu, setup, usage and gui skin setup

    Chabs SkyQ skin is downloadble via download plugins

    Then set it as your skin menu, setup, usage and gui, skin setup choose skyq

    Portal green button to download plugins choose skins scroll down to skyq skin by Chababu

    Extra plugins
    Grogs movie organisor plugin available via download plugins-extentions

    Changing the resolution of the box
    This backup was made using the resolution for 720 tvs
    To change this menu. setup, video, basic settings
    go to mode and press right to change from 720 to what your tv supports

    Idiots Guide for adding your line with Filezilla

    On your Box Menu > Info> Network > Get your box IP address
    Open up FileZilla Host (top left ) Type in IP address Username root Leave others blank Press Quick connect
    Box should then connect to computer Left side computer, Right hand box
    filezilla connect.jpg
    For Nlines

    Copy and past your line Less the N: in its place
    Disconnect from FileZilla By Clicking the X just under bookmarks top of page

    Going to try this after work

    Open ATV 3.5 or is it 5.3? What's the difference?

    Also does the ROI Sky Sports 5 I think it is called, get picked up when scanning channels as I hear that it shows 3pm Saturday Football Games?
  3. dsayers2014

    dsayers2014 TK Veteran

    Yes the sky sports 5 should be showing up channel 499 on both images the only issue is that i couldn't add roi to the end of it.

    This image is supported by openatv so online updates are safe.

    I just switched to this open ATV image from openvix.
    The Bbc and itv and 5 hd channels are not 101-105 as they were. How can I change this?
    Also noticed that the Disney channel is not in HD. Can this be fixed?
  20. dsayers2014

    dsayers2014 TK Veteran

    For 1 to 5 hd in providers change sky uk channel swap to yes.

    I'll have a look at disney channel hd in the morning
