Important Notice:

If you like OpenBh and you want to see it continue, please don't forget to donate towards keeping the servers online.

Keeping OpenBh and this Forum online is getting more and more expensive. It costs in the region of €2400+ per year to keep OpenBh and this Forum online. OpenBh has always been provided to completely free of charge by a number of hard working OpenBh Team members in their spare time.



OpenBh 5.4.1 is based on the OE-Alliance 5.4 core.



So what is different in OpenBh 5.4.1 then?


The main change from version 5.4 to version 5.4.1 has been changes to oe-alliance-core branch 5.4. The OE (Open Embedded) core on which the image is built has undergone major changes, updates and fixes. Version 5.4.1 uses Python version 3.12.3.

Whats New:

  • OE-A 5.4
  • Python 3.12.3
  • Gstreamer updated to version 1.22.12
  • If your favourite plugins no longer work, you will need to contact the plugin authors to ask them to update their plugins for Python3.12.3




*** You can not online update from 5.4 to 5.4.1, you must reflash (you can do this using image and backup manager and then restore your settings backup) ***





Apart from the above you should not notice many differences between previous OpenBh 5.4 and OpenBh 5.4.1 images.


*** NOTE ***

If you use CrossEPG, then you will need to delete the crossepg folder in /media/usb or /media/hdd before you can use it in OpenBh 5.4 onwards, this is due to changes made, to keep it compatible with Python 3.12.x

Where can I find the OpenBh git ?


The OpenBh git is located here: https://github.com/BlackHole


Vu+ Multiboot wouldn't have been possible without the hundreds of hours that dpeddi has spent over several years (yes it's been an on going project for him in his spare time for many years) to bring this real multiboot option for all Vu+ 4K boxes.

It is something we requested from Vu+ around 8/9 years ago and they told us it was not possible to add it, well finally we can prove them wrong.


You will find more information on how to setup and use Vu+ Multiboot here:

Thanks to:

  • Rytec, doglover and all the teams that host EPG feeds for EPG Importer, for their continued support.
  • All developers for their plugins used in the feeds of this image.
  • dpeddi for the massive amount of work he did to bring real Multiboot to Vu+ 4K boxes.

  • All of the OpenBh Beta team for their hours of testing and dedication on improving the image.
  • All those who have submitted patches/fixes
  • To all who have submitted translation work for OpenBh.
  • Twol for the conversion to Python 3. This has involved manually converting literally hundreds of Python files and associated c++ code.

  • Peter de Jonge, abu baniaz & Huevos for their work with Andyblac to improve ABM.

Good morning,

I note that on Vu+ Solo2 OpenBH 5.4.1 does not work properly in the restoration of a backup. It is downright impossible to reinstall a backup image. On the other hand on OpenBH 5.4.0 No problem reinstalling backup.
Would you be kind enough to see what's a bit like problem?

Big thank you and congratulations for all your efforts on your site.
I also have a big thank you to the community.

I have just made a donation

Best regards

What issues are you having ?
Good morning,
For my vu+ solo2 the backup seems to take place normally but when I restore this backup to reinstall my image it tells me quickly that there are four files that he cannot use. The Backup seems to go Its term and then it turns endless.
Upgrading remains displayed but nothing is possible on the other hand if I install 5.4.0, it reinstates itself correctly and everything works perfectly.
It is therefore 5.4.1 that poses a problem for my vu+ solo2.

Thank you for your help.
 
Sounds like you have some plugins that are not compatible with py3.12.4 that is used in openbh 5.4.1
Good morning,
Thank you for your relevant remark. Indeed, as my view+ was not visible on my Mac network I had manually modified the Samba file in order to make it visible. There was indeed the blocking during the restoration. The samba file blocked
Now everything is adjusted all the more since the latest version 5.4.1.003 has solved the visibility problem on my network. Everything works perfectly.
Thank you for your efficiency!

Big thanks
Thierryme
