Flashing now, hope it fixes the auto timer not working issue I have,
What issues did you have with the autotimer? is your epg full?
i then started scan, found 385 channels, some freeview work and some freeview dont

i have input my line as of a few youtube videos, restarted the box, restarted the mgcamd_1.38r1 (is this the correct ccam file?)
Only bbc1 to channel5 SD are free to view on cable, so if your line isn't running you will only get them.
The cam you select depends on the line you have, if the line starts CWS= then yes mgcamd is correct, if it starts C: or N: then you need to set cam 1 to CCcam and you need to make sure the line is in the correct file.

You could try installing the 'add a line' plugin (Green button -> Green Button -> Extensions -> addaline ) if it's not already installed and enter your username/password etc in there.(see http://www.techkings.org/threads/grogbuild-atv-6-1-cable-only-build-for-h5-2tc-h7c-and-h4.129946/page-62#post-874398)

Hi.. I have an h2h which we only really use for sports and movie channels. Its running fine and I have the grogbuild on for 6 months plus with no build problems at all. Is there any need for me to update this or should I just take the "if it ain't broke" approach?
Thanks
I believe in the 'if it aint broke' approach. You may find you need to update AutobouquetsMaker at some point as it's now on version 3, but you don't need to reflash to do that.

Hi Grog66, since reflashing it slow between switching channel taking 10-15 seconds sometimes to change channels, is there something I can do to speed this up please?

I have not changed any settings in the build so all I can think of is something in ATV itself, I must admit i've not noticed on my H52TC.

Hi
How do I only update auto bouquets maker to version 3
Press the Green button on remote to go to Plugin Browser. Now press the RED button which takes you to Removeable plugins screen.

Highlight System plugins and press OK and then highlight autobouquetsmaker and press OK. Now answer yes when prompted to delete it.

Once deleted press the exit button once to return to Plugin Browser and then press the Green button to take you Installable plugin list.

Again highlight System plugins and press OK and then highlight autobouquetsmaker and press OK. Now answer yes when prompted to install it.

Once installed, pressed the exit button a couple of times to return to tv picture.

You may need to restart the gui after you have done the above, hold the power button on your remote until a menu appears and then select 'Restart gui'

Hi Grog, I’m running grogbuild on a H2H which seems to glitch a lot, and occasionally freeze. It’s on LAN and mgcam. I also run a H2, on WiFi with same line provider but not grogbuild, [wasnt available when I set box up], the H2 has odd glitch but nothing like H2H. As provider same and internet presumably more stable, is latest image and abm3 likely to improve the situation?

Thanks for that is it down as autobouquetsmaker 3.0 (git....)

Edit:20th November 2017 - I've just been informed the H52tc build also works well on the H5

Edit:22nd November 2017 - I've been told by @davesbak that the H2H build works well on the H2S, you just need to configure for satellite rather than cable.

EDit:26th March 2018 - Grogbuild has now been build on the H2

Reflashing online

If you have installed grogbuild since early October 2017 then you can reflash your box online. Otherwise you need to follow the manual flash instructions further down.

1. Press the blue button and then select 'Backup settings'
2. Once backup is complete, select 'Flash online' and then on the next screen press the Green button
3. You should now see Grogbuild at the top of the list. Highlight this and press the green button to flash. If prompted to backup settings select no as we've already done this.
4. Once the files have been downloaded you will be given a menu of options to flash. Select option 2.
5. The box will now flash, this takes a few minutes and your settings should be restored.

New Install / Manual reflash

*Download from

H2, H4, H2H and H5.2tc http://www.techkings.org/resources/grogbbuild-h2-h4-h2h-and-h5-2tc-atv-6-1-cable.30/
H7C http://www.techkings.org/resources/grogbbuild-h7c-atv-6-1-cable.32/

If you are reflashing an existing box, please make sure you back up your sytems settings, on ATV this is done by pressing the blue button and then selecting 'Backup settings'. Once flashed you can then press the blue button and select 'Restore Settings'

This is my first build release, it has been used on a few boxes that I have set up so there should be no issues, it has the satellite tuner disabled but instructions below if you wish to use it.

CCcam 2.3.0, mgcamd_1.38r1 installed on H5.2tc only
oscam_atv_emu 1.2 installed
Kiddacs SlyK HD, vskin-HD and slyk-q skins installed - Vskin-HD set up as default.

Installed Plugins :
  • Dream Explorer
  • EPG-Importer
  • Auto Bouquets Maker
  • IPTV Player
  • Media Player
  • Media Scanner
  • Movie Organisor
  • OpenWebif
  • Picture player
In addition, @dsayers modifications to EPGList and UsageConfig are installed for channel numbers.

Picons are installed on your HD when your HD is first setup.



A simple script of mine updates the 'Top Pick', 'In My Shows', 'You Might Like' and 'Watch now' images on the Vskin-HD menu screen via crontab twice a day. Similar to the Top Pick addon for the Slyk 1 HD skin (addon not installed)







Download the zip file and unzip it to a usb stick. So your usb stick should now contain the zgemma folder and it's contents.

On the H5.2tc browse to zgemma/h5 folder and rename noforce to force. Turn off your box and insert the usb stick into the rear usb port and turn the box on. The LED display will say FLSH for a few minutes before the box reboots.

On the H7C turn off your box and insert the usb stick into the rear usb port and turn the box on and press the small button behind the front flap until FLSH appears on the LED. The LED display will say FLSH for a few minutes before the box reboots.

Remove the USB stick from the back of the box and insert a blank usb stick/hdd for recordings etc. I recommend nothing less than 64GB. Now press the menu button on remote and select Setup -> System -> Storage Device -> Initialisation -> YOUR USB DEVICE -> Red Button.

Once the initialisation has completed, hold the power button on remote until a menu appears and select 'Restart Gui'.

Once restarted, just make sure the usb stick/hdd is mounted correctly by pressing the RED button on the remote and selecting Plugins -> Mount Manager. Your USB device should be listed and should say Mount: /media/hdd


If it does just press the exit button until you exit the menus, if it doesn't press the Green button to Setup Mounts and using the Left/Right arrows on the remote change the mount until /media/hdd is selected and press the Green button to save. Answer yes if prompted to restart the box.

I found that the H2 and H4 require a swapfile set up, you can do this by pressing the red button on the remote and selecting Plugins -> SwapManager. Press the Green button to create and then select the usb stick. I found setting to 256mb worked fine. Once the swap file is created, Press the red button to Activate it and then the yellow button to enable 'autostart'. Now press the exit button a few times to return to tv picture.

Now we need to set up your NetID, if you don't know it check my NetID map at h52tc.com/netids.html and select the Town closest to you. Now press the Menu Button and select Setup -> Service Searching -> Tuner Configuration -> Tuner B

Using the numeric keys on your remote enter your Net ID in the Network ID field. I then set Provider to Scan to Virgin Media UK (Pure) but as we're using ABM this doesn't matter.

Press Green button to save and then select Tuner C and repeat the last step.

If you are using satellite as well select Tuner A and using the Right arrow key on remote change Configuration mode to Simple and press the Green button to save. You may have to press the Green button again if the box scans for satellites.

Now press the exit button once to return to Service Searching menu and select AutoBouquetsMaker->Providers

If wanting Freesat (ie no premim channels) change FreeSat UK to Yes and then using the left/right arrows on remote change FreeSatUK Area to the Area you wish to use. Change the bouquet settings for Freesat as you see fit. I personally just have Main bouquet set to Yes (All Channels) with the other bouquet settings set to no.

If you have a Satellite Line and want the remaining premium change Sky UK to yes and then set the Sky UK:area to your area, and then again set Sky UK: generate main bouquet to yes(All channels) and as above set the sky uk bouquet options as you want.

Now move down to Virgin (UK):Area and using the left/right arrow keys scroll through the list of Net ID's until the one you entered in tuner config above is highlighted. DO NOT change the bouquet options.

Now press the GREEN button to save.

If you have selected both cable and satellite providers above then now select Providers order, make sure cable_uk_virgin is the top item, if not highlight the sat items and press the blue button to move them below the cable_uk_virgin and then press the GREEN button to save changes.

Now press the Green button to run a scan.

Once the scan has completed, press the exit button 4 times to return to TV picture and then press the green button and select EPG-Importer.

Press the Blue button to select sources.

Now select 'Rytec UK/Ireland Virgin XMLTV' so the box is ticked. Now find and select the 'Rytec UK Sat XMLTV' if you have a sat feed connected. (I found the freesat channels didn't populate straight away but when I ran another abm scan it appeared).

Press the Green button to save.

Now press the Yellow button to run a scan. Select yes when prompted. On the right you will see 'Importing: Rytec xxx' once the importing has finished it will show 'Last Updated' with the date.

You can exit this plugin now and the import will continue iin the background.

V-Skin is already setup with pics in menus changing daily

slyk1hd included with no mods, just set it as your skin – menu, setup, usage and gui skin setup

Kiddacs sly-q with no mods included just set as your skin – menu, setup, usage and gui skin setup

Now you need to install and set up your line, if you are using cccam or mgcamd you need to put your CCcam.cfg or newcamd.list file into the /usr/keys folder, if using oscam then the oscam.server file needs to go into /usr/keys/oscam_atv folder.

Now restart the cam by pressing the Menu button and selecting InfoPanel -> Softcam Panel. Use the left/right keys to set the cam1 to the cam type you are using and then press the GREEN button to restart it.

I hope that covers it, if I've missed anything please let me know.

Update:

I've added a new plugin to the build that allows you to add your cs line directly on the box, no need to copy files etc.

Press the Green button twice to take you to the downloadable plugins list and select Extensions, you should then see the plugin addaline. select this and then answer yes if prompted to install. Once installed press the exit button to return to the plugin browser and you should see the 'Add a Line' plugin listed.

Select 'Add a Line' and you should see the following screen
View attachment 33331

Press OK while username is highlighted and then enter your password using the virtual keyboard.
View attachment 33332

Now use the up down arrow keys to highlight the next item in the list and repeat for password, server and port.

When 'Cam to use' is highlighted use the left/right arrows to change the cam to the one you want to use.

Now press the blue button and your line will be created in the format required and your cam will be restarted.

Caveats:

1. At the moment it doesn't create CCcam lines, it does do mgcamd and oscam/oscam_emu lines
2. the oscam files are created using settings I use in my line, this has been tested and works on two different servers so hopefully will work for all, if not let me know.
3. it only changes cam1 in softcam manager.
4. it backs up and then writes a new file for the select cam type only, so if you have an existing line in the selected cam type it will be replaced rather than added to. So it only works for single lines.
5. If you enter your details and press restart, and then change 'Cam to use' to another type and press restart again it will mean you have the same line in both cam types.
Thank you for the detail on how to install a line but where do I get my user name and password plus other details I need to create my line? Sorry to ask but did state I am a complete novice to this!! Thank you for your time regards
