    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.

    Found a bug. Firmware 3.0.8 with latest online update. Hotbird 13E TP 12539 H channel Hot Bird 4K1 has no sound and artifacts in picture. Also problem with Fashion TV 4K on same transponder, but problem much less, sometimes sound and picture stuck. With signal all fine and SNR around 70% All other channels from this satellite showing without any problems.
    Please check it.

    OBH is the same, so must be a driver issue.

    But these are experimental channels. To be sure there would be a completely different receiver to try. Are we sure it's due to the VU+?

    It's a channel problem
    they sometimes have video without blocking and artifacts
    but sometimes with large image blocking,not just on VU + but also on other E2 receivers.
    Whether on all receivers, I do not know.

    I check it now on my PC in ProgDVB viewer and has no problems on both channels. As Ev0 told its maybe driver issue, and must be fixed.

    I can not agree with your comparison.
    PC with Box.
    Do you have a good picture on a receiver with hardware processing ?
    Not PC
    (hardware processing and software processing)
    Video sign processing is not the same.
    What does that mean
    For example, if you include a timeshift you will have a better video on the box.
    why
    The most likely cause is the following.
    Time stamps/timing in the stream are not transmitted OK in the stream. The issue is related to the provider that transmits the channel....
    This is also confirmed by the fact that sometimes video is good and often bad.
    ERIC >>Pli team:The reason why recordings often play back well is because then the decoder has access to the whole stream at once, instead being fed small chunks at a time.
    I do not believe this problem can be solved with the driver.
    if my assumption of cause is correct,which confirms the use of timeshift.
    ===========================================================
    Eric Pli team
    Another possible reason is that the provider experiment with something that is not known,outside the area of the standards.

    In principle, the whole 4K system is developing with all possible standards not covered by the current standards.
    There will be problems.

    To add that some have a problem with NASA TV UHD 13E
    Solution is to put in A / V settings 50HZ instead of multi.
    Why
    Because some TVs lose HDMI synchronization
    because that channel uses 60Hz (USA standard)

    Today i checked channel Stingray Festival 4k on 36e ntv plus package. All works fine with sound. Thanks for fix this problem, great job. But other old bug with stuck picture with black screen and impossible change anything on receiver after set 10 or 12 bit colorbit with RGB option after cold boot still not resolved. Please check it too.

    Matrix10 ye going beyond standards its also possible reason. Also i want say this channel Hotbird4k1 has highest bitrate what im know, around 31 Mbps.

    So far it has always been written: "This Image has the latest drivers but CAN be installed in OpenMultiboot. The image does not need to be installed in flash".
    But today, after the 308A, you wrote that, for some models (Vu+ Solo, Duo, Uno), it is recommended to install it in omb. Can you specify what kind of problems there are for them if installed in flash (if they are not random)? I mean: do they affect the same features of functionalities?
    Thanks

    Since we re-added support for Solo, Duo and Uno, we have stated that the image should be installed in OMB with those models.

    Simply because the flash space is so small on those boxes there is no free space to use any plugins (not even serviceapp).

    1- Youtube is not working anymore...when i open it, it just give me black screen and never work
    2- Kodi, it came pre installed on the image ver. 17 i guess...but its not working and refuse to get addons, so i just removed it by Idreamx (i am a mac user so do not have dcc) and now i do not have any kodi on my box, and when i tried to install it ver commands, it requested a password..which i do not know!!! and i tried to change it with password changer (from the image plugins) but it still says wrong password in the telnet...

    so any recommendations to help me with that?
    Thx in advance :)

    If you have used original BH images, there is no root password setted up so leave blank password filend and all should works properly.
    If the software you use needs a password to continue, put 1234 or anything you want in the password field.

    If you try to connect with Telnet and the client asks a password and you never setted it up anymore, probably you are using a backup image (NOT SUPPORTED HERE) or someone hacks your box (and you MUST check your modem/router configuration in the port forward section).

    Thanks for your reply
    i am using the image from here in that post, so i think its original i guess... and everything work like charm but not the telnet...it keeps asking for password when i try to type any commands!!! someone hacked my box? how can i know that? get ride of it? my box is new and bought it from an official reseller a month ago

    and i would like to use the commands to update Kodi as its completely refuse to add any addons (it works perfectly on openatv images) so if there is other way to update kodi without commands will be great
    also the youtube addon that came pre installed on that image did not work, so any tweaks to fix it?

    i really appreciate your kind support
    Thanks

    Although you say you took the image from our forum, I'd like to be sure: did you install the image personally? Or did you get the box already installed?
