    What is Open Multiboot 1.0A modded by Meo?

    OpenMultiboot by Skaman is a newer and more advanced version of the popular Meoboot plugin that has been used in BH images for a long time now. We previously included a patched version of OpenMultiboot in the OpenBlackHole 0.1 image update 06-06-2015, however there were some limitations in this earlier version.

    This latest patched version of OpenMultiboot has had large parts of the code re-written by Meo to allow it to work correctly with all Vu+ boxes, and more importantly most of the popular images out there.

    The main advantage of OpenMultiboot over Meoboot is that it will swap the kernel and drivers when you swap images. This means that no image drivers or kernels get mixed up, which stops images from becoming corrupt, and therefore it means that any online updates can be applied to to any image(s) that are used in multiboot, as well as the image in flash, again without the risk of corrupting the images.

    You can now use multiple versions of OpenBlackHole in multiboot, you can also use the classic BlackHole images and VTi, as well as OpenPLi and any of your favourite OE-A images.

    Meo has also been able to find a way to allow the bootmenu to show up 8 images per page, even with the latest OpenGL based images, however having the bootmenu enabled does slow down the boot time slightly, because it needs to load the video drivers before the menu is displayed. Because of this an option to turn off the bootmenu has been included, to speedup the boot time.

    If you disable the bootmenu you just need to go into the image plugins menu to access the OpenMultiboot plugin and select the image you want to boot next.


    This version of OpenMultiboot works with most of the popular images out there, however we can not guarantee it will work with all images on all Vu+ boxes.

    We also recommend that if you install the Classic BlackHole image into OpenMultiboot that you disable Meoboot in the SpeedUp panel, to avoid conflicts and confusion.



    3rd Party Plugins

    We have added a selection of 3rd Party plugins to the OpenBlackHole feeds. A full list of the available plugins can be found here:
    List of 3rd Party Plugins available

    EPG Panel

    A new EPG Panel has been added to OpenBlackHole, if you press the Blue button and then the Red button you can access this new panel, in here you will find a range of EPG plugins, such as XMLTVimport, EPGimportfiler, CrossEPG and EPGsearch.

    What is Open Black Hole ?

    It is an exciting new project from the same team that produce the Black Hole images.

    This new project is based on the PLi git and coding infrastructure, which means it is not only Open Source, but it is also compatible with all PLi plugins, feeds and skins and it also features full online update support (for those users that do not like having to do a full reflash everytime there is an image update). We have just given it the Black Hole touch.

    This means it has the Green Panel and Blue Panels as found in the standard Black Hole images, we have also added the Black Hole addons panel and included Full HD skin support, OpenGLes Animations and of course included Xbmc .

    As with the standard Black Hole images, we continue to support Genuine Vu+ Boxes only and therefore our images are optimised for Vu+ boxes and will only work on these models (any Open Black Hole, or Black Hole images you see on the internet for other box models or clone models are not official images and we offer no support for those boxes or images).



    Do I have to upgrade to this new Open Black Hole image ?


    No you don't have to upgrade to the new Open Black Hole image, this image is completely separate from the original Black Hole image, this is simply a new image so we can offer our users more choice, if you are happy with your current image, then you can continue to use that image, if you want to try the new Open Black Hole image then you can do so.



    What about the Black Hole and Black Hole Prism Images ?


    For those of you worried about the standard Black Hole and Prismcube image, please don’t worry, we remain committed to the standard Black Hole and Black Hole Prism images and image updates will continue as normal, this new Open Black Hole image is an additional project and we are fully committed to all images.


    Where can I find the Open Black Hole git ?

    The Open Black Hole git is located here: http://git.vuplus-community.net

    This update is available as an online update, to update and add the 3rd Party plugins feed to your current installation of OpenBlackHole 0.1 you will need to do the following:

    1) Goto Green panel -> Addons and click on Online Black Hole image update as normal.

    Then you will need to:

    2) Telnet into your box and digit commands:
    Code:
    opkg update
    opkg install 3rd-party-feed-configs

    Of course you can use OBH but you have to flash the image and reinstall everything from scratch.
    This is the only possible way to update to OBH.

    Does anyone else have issues with the menu screen on this new firmware. I may have missed a thread about it but this is happening on multiple boxes Vu+ Solo with different TV's. I've tried changing the ratio and it doesnt provide any different. Through the webpage I can see the full screen.

    Check your plugins and see if you have named " OSD position Setup "!
    If you don´t have it install it via addons server.
    With this you can calibrate your OSD screen size to fit properply on your TV set.

    best regards

    Use a USB pen drive for that!

    1) - Initiliaze it on your Windows PC anf format as FAT32.

    2) - Power off your STB.

    3) - Insert the USB pen drive on the slot of your STB

    4) - Power ON your STB.

    5) - After completely booting use your RCU and press <MENU>, choose Blackhole App´s, choose devices manager and map it as /media/usb.

    6) - You should be asked to reboot your STB to aplly the settings made ( DO IT ! ).

    7) - After rebooting your USB pen drive should be mapped as told on 5) -.

    8) - Press <GREEN>, <YELLOW>, and choose ADDONS DOWLOAD MANAGER

    9) - Drop down on the list until you found PICONS PACKAGES and press <OK>

    10) - Drop down on picons list ... until found HALUS61 220x132 transparent picons to download according the sat positions you have.


    Your USB pen drive should receive the picon png files unpacked on a folder created automatically by ipk ... this folder can be found on /media/usb/picon

    After that reboot you should have picons on your OSD.

    best regards

    Thanks very much for your help nunigaia I really appreciate your support for open black hole images.

    My solo have the black hole image 2.1.4 in the flash and the open black hole in the media usb using it with meoboot

    could be that's why I cannot see them (picons) if yes I'm ready to flash my solo with open black hole cause I really like it.
    and use the black hole image 2.1.4 on the usb pendrive.

    Thanks once again my friend
