Flashing = Installing OpenPLi
When you want to install an image like OpenPLi on your receiver/box/STB, you can do this by using an USB stick with a image (=installation files), which you downloaded from here http://openpli.org/download this procedure or method is called flashing. The instruction how to flash a certain type of receiver can be found at the Receivers section of the Wiki.
As Of OpenPLi 6.X there is the possibility using the menu to flash to another version, (see animation below). Remember this is a flash not een upgrade, so you will need a backup AutoBackup if you want to restore all you settings after the flash. Consider that for now, this is still experimental!! Releasenotes-6.1, So be careful and first Backup.
After a fresh flash OpenPLi will start with the installation wizard, which will guide you through the installation and the following steps (btw you can always go back a step using the "exit" button on your remote control!):
- Select your language (after having chosen the language, Enigma restarts)
- Video input selection
- Video Mode selection
- Overscan wizard
- Connect your receiver to the internet (when a DHCP server is present this will be easiest)
- Internet Connection will be checked
- Tuners will be setup, so you'll have to know which satellites you can connect to.
Remember there is no channel list installed, so you can do a scan or download one from the settings section in the Plugin browser. Of course you can change all the above settings afterwards, if you want.
Notice to HDMI-CEC users: By default the HDMI-CEC option is turned off. If you want to use the HDMI-CEC function...
- Go to Menu->Setup->System->Customize
- Put the Setup mode to Advanced and press green (OK)
- Select Audio / Video->HDMI-CEC setup and Enable the function.
When you have made a backup with the plugin AutoBackup and this backup is on a media that is accessible from startup, during the installation, OpenPli will restore all your settings, picons and some plugins, well the ones that are in the OpenPLi feed. Depending on your internet speed and the amount of data that has to be restored, this can take a few minutes.
