Flu is gone, BUT, I now have a bit of active bronchitis. Though it's been cold and damp, and snow/ice storm after storm in Michigan for well over a week, and another coming tonight to bring maybe 8". I have the chronic bronchitis form of COPD anyway. So, it's not that surprising that my flu went into active bronchitis. So far I only really have the middling cough (hope it doesn't go into the gut crunching version), and feeling a bit drained.
primestar31,

Glad to read you're on the mend. I still have an occasional cough from the flu i had 3 weeks ago.
Its more annoying than anything.

Hi All,

I have yet another question to ask concerning the Edision OS Mio 4k.
How do I go about manually adding a transponder to scan ?
Thanks in advance.

use signal finder/ User defined transponder and enter the perameters. when you get signal press ok to scan. There was a plugin called ts-satellite editor at one time for adding transponders to a custom satellites xml placed in etc/enigma2 but I just looked in downloadable plugins and did not see it.
How I add transponders to my custom satellites xml is manually add them by opening the xml file with wordpad.Just have to be careful.
edit: ts-Sateditor download plugins under extensions. Will need a custom satellite xml in etc/enigma2.

It's not bricked. Bring up the Webif screen in your internet browser, and go into the video settings and set it to match your tv set. Just type its IP address into your browser, and hit enter.

Or, plug it into any other tv set you have around there, and see if it comes up, and change it there.

It's still likely the tv resolution. Try connecting the Mio to another tv set, and hope this one will bring up the screen. Do NOT start reloading images and stuff.

I agree, the resolution or refresh rate is not supported by your TV or using an old HDMI cable that doesn't support handshake.

If you dont have another TV, try a computer monitor.

If that doesn't work, will try a force image install using OpenPLI or OpenVIX.

So it's now working with the original image? Just leave it on that for now, and do your setups and get it working.

I HIGHLY suggest the very first thing you do is connect it to your network, and make sure you can get to it via the WebIF screen. Once that's working for sure, you should be all set no matter what.

Have you tried it on another tv or monitor yet? I'd do that before the following instructions.

Read this post, and follow the directions, it should be the same, just ignore the part about "downloading", and use the image on your backup drive: SatDreamGR on Edison OS MIO 4K

Hello mememeth
I wonder is multiboot is stock on a empty slat, this is what you do disconnect the power from the receiver give it about 1 minute and connect the power back to the receiver, while the receiver is powering up press the menu key on the remote a few times fast, a window is going to come on and it is going to ask which slat you want the receiver to boot up with, if you still have the Open ATV image as the original image choose slat 1, use the side arrow keys to move the slats, then press OK on the remote.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
Chewie

Question for those using the SatDreamGR image; when setting up a motorized USALS dish, do you have to input the "home" coordinates for each satellite? (not the satellite's position, the dish's position). Suspect I am overlooking something in initial setup...
