    PurE2 in pictures... Later on in words, too, hehe...

    PurE2 will be supported by yours truly, the only (or at least the first) person on Earth who previously wrote a comprehensive tutorial for Enigma2, CamD's, CS, streaming, playback and all the worts...:laugh1::hello

    Note: for mounting USB devices, restart from the second option, not from fstab, as in the screenshot, by mistake...

  • OK, I have written a few posts which can help newbies here:


    Read post 50 and this one: Please login to see this link. - it will lead you to a few other useful posts, too, just follow the links in it... :)

    And here is another one that can help a few hobbyists... ;)


    PiG question


    It's called a PiG :laugh1: (Picture in Graphics, as opposed to PiP) and I don't think we have it (I haven't bothered in a long time, I must say)...


    I think OpenATV do not have it any more, also - OpenPLi do, if memory serves, in a specific skin - but what we have is the OE-A thing: MENU > Setup > System > Channel selection settings > Channel list preview but that is an image in the background, not smaller, resized clear image and then one has to press OK button twice to select the image and get out of the channel list, which I find cumbersome and annoying...


    PurE2 is a very cool, malleable skin


    Have a look at MENU > Plugins > Estuary (skin) config.... Very cool and flexible! ;) From main skin menu, to background, to colours etc. etc.


    Plugins > Estuary config >

    Menu section > Menu Style > I choose Icon Wall to have all the options at a glance but you have other possibilities, like Shift, Shift Horizon, Verby and Standard


    Choose Background Wallpaper (no. 4 for me)


    etc. etc.


    Weather plugin > OK > MENU button > yellow to edit > write your town's name > yellow to search for the code > choose... > save...


    Remote button settings


    They are in different places, if memory serves...


    Have a look at System > Keyboard/RC> Button setup (EPG > I choose MultiEPG), plus Extra button setup, where you can do a lot, if you're that fussy... :P


    Also at User Interface > UI Settings...


    PurE2 FNC plugins by Franc


    Can't remember now how to (more) directly use IMDb-FNC (one of the special plugins by Franc in MENU > PurE2 Plugins) but you can get better info re. content you wanna watch...


    But you can press Info > MENU button > Search with IMDb-FNC > choose...

    OSCam


    (This is the link to the relevant post of mine) Please login to see this link.

    (Edit the config files using, for instance, Notepad++ (freeware)...;))


    It is running pretty swell!!! :laugh1:


    And it has a whole section on this forum, which I find excellent!!!:thumbup:


    OSCam Info on your screen


    If you want a skin interface for OSCam it's to be done in Skin config (Plugins > Estuary config > Infobar widget = ECM Info + PIDs and


    Setup > System > User Interface > UI > Show OSCam Info in extensions = yes. You must set it up properly: normal TV channel > blue button > OSCam Info > Setup > Read user data... = no; Automatically... = no, 10 sec, for instance; green button to save. Exit and go back to it and enjoy...:)


    Indeed, this is the point: enjoy messing about... :)

  • PiG correction


    We actually have PiG and it's in MENU > Setup > System > EPG > Graphical EPG...

    It's not a resized, smaller, clear picture of a TV channel, more in the background but at least you are listening, while you browse/ZAP...;)

  • Well, after a long time, I just checked again (in my Zgemma H7S with PurE2 v. 6.2, booting into PiP variant (MENU > STANDBY/RESTART > MULTIBOOT > button V or ^ to go to the PiP image version), obviously [2 x DVB-S2X and DVB-T2]): PiP is now working fine! No more freezing, crashing, slowing down badly etc. etc. Coders tell me that the last driver improvement was at the end of August, so...?


    As in:


    -no problem watching 2 channels, audio from only one, of course

    -swapping them and that way you change which channel's audio you listen to

    -resizing them, from one very small, all the way to splitting the screen, i.e. to equal size windows

    -zapping one window, then

    -changing which window will be zapped in and zapping in that window freely

    -madly changing channels from a big list in any direction, whichever channel (I have a T90 with 12 LNBs)

    -combining sat TV and terrestrial channels etc.


    Pretty darn smooth, I am pleased to say... And that was the last point I thought of as an issue, so now I can call it an almost PERFECT BOX (nothing is perfect, except my wife, of course :laugh1::rasta2bigsmoke0gf1: )!!!:Cool_Santa::cool1::thumbup::beer1:


    The "experimental" part from the name of the image can be removed, as far as I am concerned - it just does what it says on the tin!


    P.S. Also tested my new H9.2H - also working well, any sat TV channel + terrestrial channel...
