    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.

    Hello Ev0

    As always, all the hard work is very much appreciated.

    A question: how does one get to the Service app as shown in your picture above?

    And secondly, I want to use Dolby Digital as sound source. My box is connected to an amp. For long time I've had to move setting from AAC to DD every time I changed channel. See attached screenshot. In 3.0.7 it suddenly worked as it should, the setting was "remembered", meaning I set it to DD once for a channel and then it got back to that configuration every time the channel was used. in 3.0.8 it is back to "bad old days". AAC-HE is always selected. How can I change this to get to 3.0.7 function?

    Thanks

    1) menu - setup - system - serviceapp
    2) press blue twice, go to auto language settings, scroll down and set to Prefer AC3 track to yes and Prefer audio track stored by service to Yes, that way it will default to DD, however if you select a different option for another channel, then it will remember that selection too on that channel next time you use it.

    1/ I have got to be blind, there it was.
    2/ I had specified the language to Swedish and then it didn't work. But with that removed it is perfect.

    Again thanks

    Sorry, to improve support for TV stick on newer box we got some regressions on old boxes.
    Please
    Stand by (turn off) your box
    connect to your box using telnet
    Plug your pctv 290 stick
    Digit on telnet session
    dmesg
    Copy and paste the outputo to a file and attach here.

    It should be easy to fix...

    Thank you for your patience and support

    with your support i should have fixed the issue...

    please try to live-update your image within a couple of hours... you should get updated and I hope it would work again...

    I should have a device with some component similar to your but I doubt to get some time to test it... I'm a little busy with the real life... so let me know....

    Thank you

    BlackHole 3.0.8 as you might know is based on Vuplus coding OE 3.0, so nothing to do with OpenWebif.

    My dear... Duo4K is the last VU+ produced and on the market since a few weeks ago. Are you already celebrating too much? ;) How can a NOT 4K device be used for 4K channels?
