    BH 3.0.8 onwards includes ServiceApp and Exteplayer3 which gives improved media playback / streaming performance.

    It is pre-installed in all boxes, except Gen1 Solo, Duo, Uno, Ultimo and Zero, so you will have to enable it from the BH SpeedUp menu on those boxes.

    To use it with IPTV, you can either leave the ServiceApp settings as default and in your IPTV lists, just change the #SERVICE 1:0:1: or #SERVICE 4097:01: to #SERVICE 5002:0:1:

    Doing this, Exteplayer3 will only be used on your IPTV streams.

    Or you can change the default setting of Enigma2 playback system in the ServiceApp menu from Original to Exteplayer3.

    Note: that you can not record IPTV streams if you are using Exteplayer3 (however Enigma2 isn't reliable when recording IPTV anyway).

    Changing the setting in the ServiceApp menu, means that the image will no longer use the built in Mediaplayer (linked to Gstreamer) and will use ExtePlayer3 for all media playback for IPTV and streaming aswell as any movies / recordings on your hdd, doing this you won't need to convert your IPTV lists to #SERVICE 5002:0:1:

    But please note, that ServiceApp isn't perfect, it does not know the difference between Mpeg1 and Mpeg2 files, therefore it will report any Mpeg2 as Mpeg1 and the Zerok4K and Duo4K do not support Mpeg1, so even though these files are really Mpeg2 because ServiceApp reports them as Mpeg1 you will only get Audio on these files.

    All other Vu+ boxes support Mpeg1 so it's not too much of an issue.

    Also note that Subtitles will not work and trying to use Subtitles with Exteplayer3 may cause Enigma2 to crash, this is a known issue, and it is not something we can fix.

    In any case, as @sety told, it is ok for QuadPIP, although MINITV is other thing severall different!

    To apply MINITV ( Clone TV ) ... push on your RCU:

    Blue button ( LONG PRESS ) to apply MINItv

    Hi, i'm using VTI 14.x atm with my duo4k. On VTI a recording from freetv is fine, but with a CAM the .ts is unreadable for TSDoctor/TMPGEnc - .ap is missing and .sc is empty. Are recorded .ts files (with CAM used) ok on Blackhole 3.0.8? And yes, its playable on the Duo4k, but i'm not able to edit the file. It's NOT a question about CAM help!

    Edit: PotPlayer can play the file, VLC not

    Yes, it was commited at BlackHole images too, and AFAIK, at all images from other teams ( based on O.E. 3.0 ( vuplus coding ) and based on ( O.E.-A )).

    best regards

    I'm happy with this version, have 2 questions regarding channel selector:
    1. I can activate channel selector with up/down arrow buttons and program +/- buttons. Program - button is working strange, jumps on the top of the channel list.
    I would prefer that 1st press of the button just activates the list, not move to a next/previous channel or top/bottom channel.
    2. Is there a skin for BH in which the I can see more following programs in the right panel below the video (now there are only 2 - current and next)?
    Thank you for your good work.

    About 2 you don't need any plugins: it's the feature called MultiGraphicalEPG.
    you'll have not only the current channels but also all the other channels near it.

    Thanks but I don't find MultiEPG very practical and effective for real usage... CoolTVGuide plugin does a better job but you still need to leave the channel selection screen.
    For me the most efficient program navigation is channel selection screen with 2 windows - main for channel selection and smaller for selected channel program list.
    You move between channels in the main window with arrow buttons and can see a list of related programs in the small window.
    Don't need the EPG button most of the time except the rare occasion you find an unknown program in the list for which you want to read a detailed description.

    I don't like the way of VTi - big font and very limited information on screen.
    Why not use those big 4k TV screens for providing more information to users without need of many additional clicks ?

    Except this I'm very much satisfied with BH 3.0.8.A image.

    Hi,

    I just bought a vu+ duo 4k. I have a single stupid LNB on a motorized dish but I am struggling
    to activate all the FBC channels.
    I tried to have the B channel as loopthrough or inactive but all the other "virtual" FCB remain inactive. I am very annoyed as if I watch a channel I can't record/stream another one even on the same satellite and transponder. The screen just get black.
    I would appreciate any help as
    I am completely new to satellite boxes

    Thx

    Does this happen on FTA channels? (then it's okay with your tuners and config )
    If not then here we can not discuss encrypted programs.
    Not allowed here.

    We can not deviate from VU + base coding
    in addition, some users prefer to have EPG info now/next in the channel list
    and not used space with the next program names.
    And especially not with overcrowded panels

    If your LNB is not a Unicable/SCR you can't take advantage of your FBC tuners. Viceversa, if your LNB is Unicable/SCR, the tuner B is not needed but you must learn how to configure FBC tuners with a SCR LNB.

    THx for your answer,

    With all channels both FTA and encrypted (Viasat). My guess is that it is because apart from the physical tuner A and B all the others remain not active. I tried to have tuner B loopthrough but nothing changed.

    If I understand correctly I just can't do it even on emission on the same transponder and quadrant unless I have an unicable/scr? It is right? Do you have any advice about unicable/scr to use?

    Thanks for your answer. I can understand if for some users truncated EPG info is more useful.
    Not so much for me, that's why I asked first about some special skin displaying more next programs as a list instead.
    IMHO the result would not be overcrowded if fulltext information is replaced with structured lines occupying the same space on display.
    Please consider this as one user's delayed Christmas wish :) Of course only if technically possible...
