    Hi, I have a VU+ Duo with Blackhole 1.7.2 and for some reason when I try to download the Rytec - SKYUK Epg the screen goes green and it say´s there is a software error then goes back to the previous channel. My friend has the same box and image and is not having the problem but I have another friend with a Vu+ Solo who also has the same problem as me. Any feed back would be much appreciated as this driving me mad

    Take a look at the crashlog on your hdd, most likeley a memory problem.
    If you don`t use a swapfile then you you can try it again with a swapfile.

    Hi, This sounds like a good fix. But how do I "try it again with a swapfile" as you suggest?

    1st make a swap file

    2xBlue>Swap file settings> "fallow instructions" 32 mega is more than enough!

    Now try,,,if U still have crashes,,,use a script called Free-Ram..made by my friend P2P.

    Thanks,
    The swap file is up and running. But.. Your post which I found while searching for the Script....

    "I solved my problem this way:-

    1- Make a swap file on USB,,(a size of 32 or 64 mg more than enough).
    2- Use a plug-in/script called > Force SWAP to reduce RAM VU+Duo.
    (found @ linux_supprt_Addons).
    3- Before making an EPG update, does not matter using BH_EPG settings or CrossEPG
    Downloader, I use the script made by my good pal P2P
    Free RAM >> http://www.vuplus-community.net/board/posts/56805/

    Since then never had a crash due to "flash memory are overfilled"

    Has it been deleted or moved.#
    Thanks for the help.
    Your great.

    This is my current version info:

    Devicename: dm500hd
    Enigma Version: Feb 10 2011-vuplus_experimental
    Image Version: Experimental 2011-02-10
    Frontprozessor Version: VNone
    Webinterface Version: 1.6.5

    Do I upload your script by USB MENU-SETUP-SOFTWARE MANAGEMENT-INPUT -USB-Free-Ram.sh?
    Also, is there any benifit in updating my current Version files (see above)?
    Thanks again
    Rory

    It`s a script, so it goes to /usr/script
    Set rights/chmod to 755 and then you can acces it with your remote -- green button -- blue button

    Script does excactly the same as the plugin.

    Hi P2P,
    How exactly do I move it to /usr/script ? and which menu do I "Set rights/chmod to 755".
    I have this box about 2 years and am still learning the basics.
    Thanks loads,
    Rory H.

    You move it with a ftp program like DCC_E2 (google it ), if you moved the file to /usr/script then right click with your mouse and then you can change it (attributes)
    Or with telnet the commando: chmod 755 /usr/script/Free-Ram.sh

    grt.
