What operating system do I need to have, to be able to use and or modify these firmwares? Can these firmwares be used without a hard drive installed in the TViX 6500a? Or if so, could a usb flash be used instead?

I obviously have no clue how to begin, but would like to find out. I have check the website forum, and have to say that most of it is over my head.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

yes it can be installed using usb flash. the best place to talk about the Badeip firmware is the following forum

http://www.binary-art.net/bbpress/

as you will get a more quicker response.

edit: always update in safe mode (insert usb with firmware in back on tvix player and then hold down setup on the main unit then then power it on) and follow instructions

ind all firmwares inc non-offical ones from the following link.

download and uncompress to usb stick and then insert usb stick to back of tvix and run safe mode - this is the way i do it.

Thanks for the reply! I was going to post to that site, but my password doesn't work for my user name anymore. I tried resetting it but it wouldn't do that either.

Do you use the firmware as is, or do you make changes to it. If you make changes to it, what software/ operating system do you have to use?

Thanks

hi,

the core firmware is the same but with a few addtional addon i.e. bit torrent / icons / rss etc but you will need to ssh onto you tvix and configure it.

so basically same as orignal firmware with add-ons just flash it how it is and then read up on the added features and how to use this on opentvix.
