Proudly introduces a brand new ViX image for all OpenViX supported receivers
OpenViX Apollo requires a full reflash, you can still use a settings backup taken from OpenViX Zeus or OpenViX Helios (but not from OpenViX 3.0 or earlier).
There have been some changes in AutoBouquetsMaker, you may need to set your providers again.
So what is different in OpenViX Apollo then?
As with OpenViX Zeus the main difference is core of the image or the OE (Open Embedded), this has undergone a lot of changes, updates and fixes (including fixes for the heartbleed bug in openssl). As a user you should not notice any differences between OpenViX Helios and OpenViX Apollo. (i.e. there are no real functional differences.)
OpenViX Helios build 017 will be the final build in the Helios series, and so Apollo takes over the reins.
But why a new image so soon, you just launched Helios?
Basically the recent update of the image OE (Open Embedded) to v 2.2, was very significant. This contains substantial changes and updates that mean you cannot use the online update feature from OpenViX Zeus build 023. Rather than asking users not to use the online update function, we have taken the step of changing the image name to ensure that users perform a fresh flash.
ViX compatible softcams can now be installed using the plugin feeds.
Users will still need to provide their own softcam configuration files. Support will only be provided for users with a legitimate viewing card and valid subscription.
