The firmware is split in two parts due to space constraints in the TViX flash.
- The firmware image is installed as normal
- The zip-file must be installed installed on the root (where the audio, photo and video folders reside) on e.g the TViX local disk

Great job... I've been trying to get DVD's to play over USB, and this is impressive. I stumbled upon this earlier and wrote of it inadvertently at:

http://www.mpcclub.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=163445#163445

^-Now noting this here, as it should be.

install as stated (fw update, then decompress zipfile to HDD, then reboot w/ DVD connected), then launch the dvdfs directory on the tvix-installed HDD, and the DVD plays. Works great with my LG USB-powered DVD player (GP08) if I use the supplemental USB to power adapter (uses both usb ports on the back--but I could use an AC 110v to USB power adapter, too)

Well done... I like the opentvix v1.25 file "zipfile you must unzip to the HDD" structure, so you can make functionality updates there w/o a new FW update. Looking now to find out what else this new FW can do as I have time--this is a real gem, adding dvdfs+dvdfsd.

Plus, your link above appears broken/mis-indexed--is seemingly is:

thx much!

Hi badeip,

May I ask if this firmware will support a DAS (using RAID 5) that has >2TB storage and formatted using GPT?

Many Thanks!

Hello,

is this firmware also working without installed harddrive in the m-7000a, i stream everything so i don't have a drive.

Well that's a two-part answer.... Yes and no...

Yes:
the firmware will support basic playback, barely.. see the NO below...

No:
the opentvix feature like DVd playback will NOT work w/o a HDD--the HDD contains the opentvix "firmware extension"--remember you have to expand the opentvix 1.2.5 file to the HDD, and a opentvix folder results. Also, in the firmware itself the AAC APPEARS TO BE BROKEN (as another user told me and I verified)), I had to go to the previous version of badeip (It was exactly the .85 ver) FW to get that back. that 'no-AAC' was a dealbreaker for me.


I never tried loading the opentvix onto a flash drive--I suspect, but never verified, that the usb DVD might interfere with the opentvix function off the USB flash drive--besides for me I have a USB-powered DVD drive and I needed BOTH USB ports for full USB-power function(one for signal plus some power, and the other for MORE power).

Remember, the DVD is played out of the dvdfs directory on the HDD, not from the USB drive connect itself. Also it takes the program a little whie to engage the DVD--you might need to retry occasionally to get a proper startup, but after that it appears to play fine.

Lastly on this--I do not have the ability to VERIFY if this FW supports Bluray ISO (no bluray iso files to test)--but if it did, the .85 firmware with opentvix 1.25 would be optimal in my book.

You would do well to get a WD greenpower/Samsung EcoGreen drive to keep the temp down and also keep the huge spinup spike of power down. I had a seagate drive in there and the thing would spike almost 30 watts on startup--a bit harsh for the dvico power supply. GP drive only spiked 12 to 15 watts.

Thanks very much, i tested it and i removed instantly. It plays stuttering when streams blu-ray files and mkv. No problems at all witjh the beta from dvico. Again thanks for answering.

the firmware should behave identically as the original, except that you'll get a lot of additional features

Hi Badeip,

any plans to do a .125 firmware and opentvix 1.2x or 1.3x port?

I was using the .110 until I realized it, at the source, could not play AAC files, then fell back to .85 and opentvix 1.1--which does not have all the neat FTP and Samba server and ntp server, etc, features. .125 seems to fix the AAC problem... so I was wondering...

keep up the great badeip tvix m6500/m7000 releases!

Hi,

I have a modified version of 1.3.125 here http://www.binary-art.net/bbpress/topic.php?id=133

I'll release a beta2 as soon with Seres patch for unlocking Korean units and my updated version of tvixconfig.

Regards,

V1.3.125 looks great so far.. the bells and whistles are bak, and most importantly (to me) this FW plays AAc and also plays USB-DVD's like .110

Beta 1 looks good so far....

im all new to custom FW.
Do i understand it right that if i dont have an internal drive i can't use this FW?

Can i install a small hd in the tvix only to contain this FW and then still stream my vid files from the pc as i do today?
