    This is my back-up image
    Running openvix 4.2 with all latest updates installed (at time of upload).

    I have changed the bootlogo to the apple logo.
    (didnt like the vix country lane)
    This can be changed.


    Backup comes pre-installed with VIXBMC_1080_Bello skin in pics below other skins are easily added.



    Comes with kodi 16 running blackbox all upto date with on demand.

    Bbc iplayer
    Itv player
    Soaps catch-up
    And everything else kodi has to offer.



    Dream-explorer is installed for adding line via remote
    Also have dreamplex installed although you will be requiring server access to use this feature


    Download the attached rar file and un rar
    Copy the solose file to a formatted usb and stick in back of box with power off.
    Power on light will blink while box flashes (2/3 mins)
    When done remove usb from box.
    Add hdd or usb to box
    Menu, system,storage device, initialisation

    Service searching
    Change from my net id to your own and save
    Start scan
    Will scan automatically each night at 5am

    Put tv on vm preview channel
    Blue button
    Epg refresh now
    This is set for 3am each night

    That should be all you have to do to get your box working apart from obviously sending your line over via ftp or just edit what is there via dream-explorer in usr/keys.

    The catchup and on-demand, are they all KODI bits and bobs?
    Currently running OpenATV 5.x with just a few plugins, mainly OSCAM, but certainly looking to load her up :)
    Very disappointed that the solo4k can only output kodi at 720p, but meh! i'm just a HD Whore xD

    They are all available from kodi mate.
    I am in the process of starting afresh... I get bored easily lol

    Guess I need to spare a few hours and skill up ;) my Solo4K is no good at Kodi at 1080p / 4K (720p max :'( ) so might have to use my Intel Compute Stick, that handles 4K windows well enough, Kodi could be a fun project

    Just have a play mate.
    Just a case of refreshing and starting again if something goes wrong.
    If you have all important info saved to computer which you sound like you will have then you can't really break them lol

    I still haven't tried this backup yet! Been messing around with my current build - got Kodi set up, installed a few add-ons. Tried to do a 'lite' version compared to Kodi (LibreElec) on my Raspberry Pi - seems to work pretty well, and nice to be able to have everything on one box.

    I've been looking through all the different plugins for OpenVix - just wish there were descriptions of what each plugin does! Currently have to google the names of any that look interesting....
