I would be interested in some ideas too. But does the Vix actually replace the Open pli I curretly have? but I have only updated what I have and played with a cpl of things to try and make things better cheers

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, VIX is another layer that runs on top of Open-PLI. It adds some extra functions and a new selection of skins. The main benefit is the Auto Timer function aka "Series Link" or "Season Pass". I changed from using MySky to Vu+ Duo, and that was the only significant thing missing. With VIX, that problem is solved, and there are so many other things it does much better than MySky.
Sorry, forgot about this. VIX replaces Open PLi or any other image. VIX is actually based on Open PLi but has more features etc. I am assuming you are comfortable with the VU+ menus and accessing the VU+ from a windows PC
If you are already running an image here is what to do to install VIX.
1 make a copy of the CCcam and OSCAM binaries. They can be found in root/usr/bin 2 make a copy of the CCcam.cfg file. It is in root/etc 3 make a copy of the whole root/var/tuxbox/config directory. It contains the 3 OSCAM config files 4 use something like dreambox edit to backup your bouquets and settings 5 jot down your lnb settings 6 Flash the VIX image. Get it from http://www.world-of-satellite.com/forumdisplay.php?154-VU-Duo-ViX-Team-images 7 Follow the wizard to do the initial setuo. Configure the LNB according to the settings you jotted down 8 Install SAMBA in the system, setup, network menu 9 Use dreambox edit (or whatever you used in 4) to restore your bouquets and settings 10 Copy the CCcam and OSCAM binaries to root/usr/softcams 11 Copy CCcam.cfg to /root/etc 12 Copy the root/var/tuxbox/config directory back 13 in menu, softcam/CI, Softcam manager start OSCAM and set it to autostart and then start CCcam and set it to autostart. It is important to start OSCAM first.
Thats it. If you reflash or install later releases just start at step 6.
Thanks for the step by step instructions. but alas I don't have a network set up at home to access the Vu Duo.
Can this be done by just connecting the duo into a spare ethernet port on the modem? and if so what else would I need to do?. evey cpl of months I connect it up to the bedroom tv and reroute a cable to it to some updates when I was playing around before I lost most stuff but just got the usb and loaded it again and did a search for the channels
I am not sure if I have these or not "CCcam and OSCAM binaries" it would be nice if I got sky again to run through just 1 box.
To Grant K I saw on another post that you "PM to you with the instructions I got from the NZ importer" Could you do the same for me as well? I have the instruction book, but somethings are different
