    Hello all,

    Updated my current images (OpenPLi, OpenVix) to the newest images dated 7/22/19. After updating, the ATSC Hauppauge 950q no longer functions. I have heard this is a known issue, but wanted to also report it here.

    I am presently trying to roll back to an older image to rectify the issue, but I'm getting an error when trying to download plugins. Something about "the kernel has changed and is no longer compatible, please upgrade."

    Anytime there is a kernel change, the ATSC drivers for Hauppauge and other plugins in general may not function or may not function correctly. Some drivers (ATSC and other), and plugins may require updates after a kernel upgrade. It is a good idea not to update the fta receiver unless you know why you are updating it. Some enigma2 images are experimental in nature, and issues may occur after updating. It is wise to make a complete image backup before updating any image.

    There are different images, and you do not say which image you are trying to restore. The differences in kernels should not stop an image restore. Will be glad to help you get it going again if you can post a bit more about what you are trying to do, and maybe include a screenshot of any errors.

    What started it all was when I upgraded to the latest version of OpenVIX (5.2.045). I periodically check the Software Update menu from within the GUI; if there are incremental updates I take them. This time, the receiver said a new image flash was required.

    After flashing the update, the 950q no longer appeared in the tuner menu.

    It appears that OpenPLi has released a patch for their image today; I installed their latest image and my tuner is now functioning again.

    Guess I just have to wait for a VIX patch

    OpenVix is based on OE Alliance, and operates a bit differently than OpenPLi based images. OpenVix looks after the user and suggests a flash where most Pli based images leave that decision up to the user. OpenVix does not release experimental updates to the public, so you usually will not have any problems at all updating from them.

    Other OE Alliance images may have experimental updates such as OpenATV, which updates almost every night. OpenATV will have the latest updates, but they also may have the latest bugs or errors. Image Update Problems are rare, but they do happen more often in experiential type image updates as compared to images such as VIX that group or beta test before releasing.

    If a full image backup is done before updating, then almost any image update error can be immediately corrected by reloading the full image backup.
