    Is it the same region mate? I would rescan using ABM and update config files before doing so and let the epg load naturally after that.

I have placed both the files in the var/key folder, restarted the box about 10 times.

    So you have saved and then transferred your mates mg_cfg and newcamd.listfiles to usr/keys/ of his box. It should therefore be a case of:

    blue button > softcam > softcam panel > ok > make sure select cam 1 is changed to to mgcamd_1.38r1 by pressing right arrow key on remote > press green button to restart and your line should kick in.

    If that doesnt work make sure your network is set up properly but if you have ftp`d to the box that should be ok

    blue button > network > network interface > ok and make sure its working. If its not just go back and use network wizard to set it up.

    Check all connections including ethernet cable is securely fitted to the box.

    You can change to an ATV bootlogo by pressing menu > plugins > green button> install bootlogo plugin then choose one via plugins and restart your GUI.

    I am having an issue with OpenATV 6,1 on a Zgemma H5.2S. It is just being used just for IPTV.
    The problem is with navigating certain areas in the EPG - In the 'normal broadcast channel' Bouquets everything is fine and it behaves as expected allowing navigation down the channel lists within the bouquet, but when in any of the VOD Bouquet sections, it is not possible to navigate down through the lists - ie, the down-arrow (or any of the arrows for that matter) do not respond.
    If anyone has any ideas or thoughts on that, I'd be most grateful......

    Can anyone shed any light on this. I updated a zgemma star LC to the latest openatv 20180118
    got it up and running and I still have the narrator on the channels, I thought the update was supposed to
    sort all this out?

    Is that on vm channels mate or satellite? Open atv and abm definitely sorted the narration issue on vm. However if you also use freesat i have noticed some of the channels use the narration as default. Easy fix though by pressing audio and choosing alternative audio available. You can adjust the audio settings in setup but that doesnt resolve all the narration on freesat.

    I dont have an LC mate but I cant see how that OATV wouldnt have fixed the audio issue. Did you use ABM to set up and scan in your channels?

    Why not use an image like ipab which seems to support the LC. All the instructions are on their site.

    Hi All

    Do i need to delete all the other files on var/keys and then only leave mg_cfg and newcamd.list?

    Thanks

    you could try doing a software update, failing which, a reflash might be worth it
