Cable Scan issue's?

There is bug with the VU+ drivers so that a scan can not be completed if tuner D is used.

This is the issue: input3 and input2 have no input3_choices or input4_choices so the Enigma2 doesn't try to initialize them.

/proc/stb/tsmux/input1_choices:CI0 CI1 A B
/proc/stb/tsmux/input0_choices:CI0 CI1 A B
/proc/stb/tsmux/input3:A
/proc/stb/tsmux/input2:A
/proc/stb/tsmux/input1:B
/proc/stb/tsmux/input0:AA simple solution is to initialize them manually.

Temporary solution until reboot

echo -n C >  /proc/stb/tsmux/input2
echo -n D >  /proc/stb/tsmux/input3

Note: VU+ should add input2_choices and input3_choices nodes.

Temporary Solution, that still works after a reboot: Install the IPK files that are posted at: https://forums.openpli.org/topic/49214-vuplus-duo2-dvb-t2-tuner-nim-tt3l10-stopped-working/page-3#entry701207 Reboot the receiver, and the scan problems are solved.

The file that can be found at the forum (see below) will place the original factory bootlogo back on your receiver. The content of the file needs to be placed on a USB pen drive. The file contains splash screens for the models:

duo2, solo2, solo4k, solose, ultimo, ultimo4k, uno, uno4k, uno4kse, zero and the zero4k.

You do not have to pick one of the bootlogo's.. Your receiver selects only the file that must be needed. .

So the following steps must be taken:

  1. Place the content of the zip file on the USB pendrive.
  2. reboot your receiver
  3. flash the 'image' (This wil take a few second)
  4. when the flash is completed, remove the USB pendrive
  5. restart your receiver
