    right, so i tried all the resetting business. held in reset button for ages while powering on, but air digital icon won't change colour and openatv doesn't start until another reboot. no change. :eek:

    the new usb stick just arrived. so i'm going through the whole process again using that. formatted it using bootice as suggested by willo sometime last year. downloaded openatv6.1 image and unzipped folder. the h9 folder contains only 9 files. is this correct and do i put that folder only on the usb stick? cheers!

    Hi nico! I like it! - It comes out very favourably against the openbox v8s which I used before, especially in terms of speed and epg. Not sure if I should go for the new wooshbuild. I'm using my box for foreign fta channels on Astra 19.2E, so not too sure if I have much to gain from it. What do you think?

    Hi mate it depends on what you want and what you are prepared to pay etc. Lots of fta on 13 east or there used to be when I had my motorised dish. You can have a euro line with a motorised dish or a fixed dish or a monoblock dish that can get you 2 or 3 sats off 1 dish that will get you hundreds of channels especially on 1 west.
    Also lots on 30 west again with a motorised dish recommend a 1m if you where looking at that.
    You can also download from the plugins menu the stalker qt which is a plugin that emulates a mag box for iptv with a sub will get you lots of channels and 3 pm football etc and Vod. Only thing I've found with the plugin which is the same for most emulators is they don't work as perfect as a mag box ie they don't or can't restart a stream so it freezes but you can get over this by switching to another channel and back again. Again depends on how much you want to spend or your budget.

    Hi nico, cheers mate! I actually rarely watch british TV, and the handful of channels I can get through freeview in hd do me rightly. If I watch live TV it's mainly german channels, which to me are only available via satellte - through astra k, I think it is (19.2 anyway). Not really interested in the 28.2 position, so wouldn't really need a motorised dish. But wouldn't mind getting the sports channels through iptv, if that's a possibility. Must admit, I'm not that advanced yet though, and I'm already quite happy having managed to customise my new zgemma box for fta 19.2 satellite. The update I eventually managed to get did it the world of good, as out of the box it had a few problems with dropped display and narrative over films etc. But that's all fixed for now. Do you have wooshbuild infinity and can you explain in simple terms how I could benefit from it? Sorry, as I say, I'm a complete newbie and only finding my feet in this. Many thanks!

    No mate I just build my own has I put on what I need. Wooshbuild is very good and he's very helpful . Don't think it would be any good for you has its mainly 28.2 East based off sky satellite but I maybe wrong.
    Stalker Qt is the plugin you need if you want to try iptv on the h9s.

    WooshBuild Infinity will set your box up for 28.2 as I haven't added other choices to the setup, but might do in the future. But you would just need to go into the AutoBouquetsMaker settings, select delete bouquets and then select the satellite you want to use 19.2 and disable the 28.2 selection. It will take about a minute. Other than that everything else would be configured for you except for your IPTV.

    The Infinity support thread is the best place if you need help.

    Thanks, mate. I'd like to give it a try as I've read good things about it. Will keep an eye out for when it's ready with the 19.2 option. :)

    Hi mate I posted this on another thread to help someone else with 19.2 try this for a channel list.

    What image do you have on your box ?
    I presume it's openatv?
    If so press green button
    This opens up the plugin page
    Press green button again
    This opens all plugins settings etc which can be downloaded .
    Press ok on extensions.
    This opens up the folder
    Cursor down to you see vhanibalautosettings 1.1
    Press ok to download it.
    Then restart your box
    Press and hold standby button when options come up select restart .
    Then press green button to go into plugins .
    You will now have vhanibalautosettings in there you can then download automatically channel lists you want for the satellite 19.2 and 13 combined.
    Hope this helps

    Thanks for this mate. But the only foreign channels I'm interested in (or can understand) are on 19.2. Cheers all the same! :)
