    You are better off flashing a new nightly build rather than doing updates at present.
    Unless you have a problem then ignore the updates for the time being.

    I don't know who you are asking. You seem to be the only one with the issue, or certainly the only one who has posted.

    If you want to fry you head even more, use IPTV player and pause what you are watching. When you un-pause it will either take a week to resume, or won't resume at all.

    I think the problem with this box is that AirDigital decided to use a different ARM cpu brand than the norm, probably a cost saving exercise but has caused issued with firmware and drivers etc.

    @sam7788 ...Don't think anybody has bought him a box yet so no image available.
    Also lots of complaints that you can only use iptv supplied by them.
    I would think long and hard about which image/build you use on whichever box you end up with.

    H9 and H9S will be the same image although called something different, or at least should be the same. ipleb was released very very early on the H9 boxes which is why it is still beta, I don't think it has been updated since then which means openATV will be full of bugs on this box and maybe display issues / severe lagging. I know it had big issues in the early days and even now they have a few issues still.

    IPTV: You do have a choice, if you have a username, password and URL for your IPTV you can use it on any image using the plugin called Sul's bouquet maker, also called e2m3u2bouquet, the only thing you may suffer from is a poor EPG as you won't have the chance to use the infamous ipleb EPG fudge to fix whatever the IPTV provider can't fix. The fudge is part of their image and deletes a main file and replaces it with their own to get around the broken EPG. You could even setup the box yourself and still be able to use your IPTV, you don't have to use a pre-made image if you don't mind setting everything up manually and installing bits and pieces.

    We are all here to help whatever you decide to do except for ipleb. The maker hasn't been here since April and has never supported any users of it even though it had a support thread in the past here. Everything is done via facebook as far as I am aware. Be warned though, if they don't like what you say in their group you will be kicked out and banned. Good support eh?!

    I have heard many similar stories too. He doesnt want to be part of TK, he just wants our members to join him on Facebook, but not ask too many hard questions.
    Many people have joined here just because they have been thrown off his group. It seems the only mention of him around here is in negative terms lately.

    Using the stalker portal my times on the epg seem to be messed it shows correct program but wrong times . When I go into settings in the portal it's auto setting my time to Stockholm rather than London (gmt) I've tried changing it but it just reverts. Any ideas?

    Just opened a new H9s yesterday - having flashed a nightly Openatv 6.2 - i've tried to install the xtreamtv E2 plugin for IPTV. XtreamTV_0.1.1_mips32el.ipk

    After installation plugin doesn't appear in menu but i receive the following error on navigating to plugin menu
    some plugins are not available:
    Extensions/XtreamTV (usr/lib/enigma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/XtreamTV/data2.so: cannot open shared object File: No such file or directory)

    I've tried reflashing a fresh 6.2 - same result
    Stepped back to 6.1 - same result

    Anyone any idea whats going on?

    You need the ARM version for 4k models.

    thanks for the reply.

    ok - fresh 6.2 and gave it a go with the Enigma2-Plugin_mips32el.ipk 0.0.6 via telnet and opkg install -force-overwrite /tmp/*.ipk

    No error on install - but same result as before with same error on launch plugin menu.

    nice one.. will give it a go here

    Sweet! Working a treat.. oversight of my part - thanks for the pointer...
    I'm instantly liking a lot about this box - i know its had quite a bit of abuse on here for not being up to scratch, but i'm seeing super zap time even in the plugin, no sync problems across all channels including splendid 4k streaming clarity

    for the people having problems playing video in stalker portal you have to load "service app" in plugins then go to downloads then systemplugins and download "service app" there. you must then switch to "gstplayer" within the serviceapp menu. eg service app resides in different places on different images once downloaded. you can ofcourse also use exteplayer3 for xtream app but not sure which performs best as i havnt tried that app yet.
