Hi all. Just looking for help.
Have a HD51 with a500hdd installed
Running openvix 5.2.005
Using willow build 5.2
Using it for cable with Oscam

Recently, the box keeps freezing and crashing. You have to unplug the power and restart. Happens 3-4 times a day
I changed the HDD, no joy. I’ve reinstalled Vix and willowbuild. Still no joy

What next ...??

Thanks

I prefare to use a fresh flash and setup box from scratch so i then know i am not importing any bugs with settings restore.
If you have a skin try removing it and see how box runs,normally one is asked for crash logs on the home of openvix to check your issue.
Where is your epg been stored to can bring further issues ahead.

Try uninstalling or disabling cacheflush. There is no need for it on Arm boxes with plenty of ram.
I was having freezing issues with my Vu+ Ultimo and Gigablue Quad 4K and it turned out to be cacheflush.
I can't remember if I enabled debug logs - Menu > Setup > System > Logs.
The logs should be saved to /home/root/logs/.

Is it still doing it on the latest version of ViX 5.2.018?

Bloody hell cacheflush is for the earlier slow boxes like solo/duo and zgemma.
Hmm did you setup a swapfile also not needed on the better boxes.
