Items changed/moved:

  • Renamed Service searching to Tuners and scanning, because the current name does not mention anything about tuners. Tuners and scanning covers both terms.
  • The names of wifi driver packages have been unified, and now all start with "kernel-module". This means that when you restore a backup, a previously installed wifi driver might not be restored, and need to be installed manually using Software Management, or from the commandline.

Look and feel changes:

  • As always many translation/language improvements, thanks to all the translators!

  • Add show picon in channellist to SetupWizard
  • FlashImage: Show confirmation question before reboot
  • GraphMultiEpgSetup Added colored buttons
  • Increased timeout for some PIN code related message boxes

Other improvements:

  • Upgrade to kernel v5.2 for some receivers
  • Wireless driver rtl8723bu added
  • Fastscan - added FreeSAT SK, FocuSat and UPC Direct on Thor 0.8W
  • OpenSSL has been upgraded to 1.0.2r, which includes backwards support for 1.0.0, needed for the mgcamd ARM binary.
  • Better mmc device detection and allow SD/MMC cards to be formatted
  • Better boot device detection
  • Increased timeout for some PIN code related message boxes

Known issue's:

  • HbbTV is disabled on both XSarius as QViart machines because it's severely broken. The manufacturer need to fix this issue.
  • The fallback tuner configuration has the option to import EPG from the fallback tuner. Issues have been reported where the import conflicts with local EPG readers, which may lead to corrupted EPG in the client box. As a workaround, you can disable all EPG readers in the EPG menu (should not be an issue, as you import the EPG anyway), or start the box on a channel that does not provide EPG data.
