New in Flubber
- MultiEPG has been updated to show a Picture in Graphic (PiG). This works for the dm7000 and dm7020 boxes. Unfortunately, due to hardware limitations, the dm5xx(x) boxes do not support PIG. Instead a placeholder will be shown instead. Flubber includes a special fix to also make this work for NTSC systems. The event genre is now also shown in the event description window (when available). Now in Flubber you can even use '<' and '>' to quickly jump backward / forward in time.
- Flubber supports reading 32-bit (!) png images as skin images and writing 32-bit osdshots. The Enigma internal picture viewer now works in 32-bit colormode for dm7000 and dm7020, and 8-bit mode for dm5xx(x), which now at least allows to show images on dm5xx(x). Scaling, resizing, and pan images has also been implemented. See the technotes pages.
- The Skin/OSD on dm7000 and dm7020 still defaults to 8-bit colormode, but a 32-bit version of the default skin (MediaPLi) is available, to enjoy the pleasure of a full 32-bit OSD. The reason for not setting the default to 32-bit, is that several boxes show occasional green glitches in the mpeg stream, while they are in 32-bit mode. As it seems due to hardware/driver limits. We suggest you try for yourself how your 70x0 box works with 32-bit, so it is up to you to use either the 8-bit or 32-bit version of our revolutionary MediaPLi skin. Note that we have hugely improved the 8-bit possibilities for skins, by parsing palette colors from the skin images. So owners of 8-bit boxes are certainly not left behind.
See the skin technotes for more details.
- As of this version you can choose where EPG data will be stored. Until now, this data was always stored in memory. When large amounts of EPG data were read, performance of the box degraded, due to lack of free memory. Within Flubber you can choose between two storage locations:
- EPG Memory store: The conventional way of epg data storage. This is the default.
- EPG SQLite store: Data is stored in a SQLite database, which resides in a file.
- for skindevelopers: introduction of the 'c' specification for centered positioning. This makes it easier to develop TV-system independent skins. The 'c' takes the center postion of the parent (client)rectangle. Use it in the same way as the 'e' specification. To center a widget of 500 by 300 pixels position="c-250:c-150" size="500:300". See the skin technotes for more details.
- Now support gauges for progress bars. Both gauges and progress bars do support images, again, the MediaPLi skin demonstrates what is currently possible with your new Flubber image.
- Commercial skip: use the '<' and '>' (next to '0' key) to quickly skip 15 seconds back or 60 seconds forward in the recording you are currently playing
- Mount manager now supports hostnames as well as ip-addresses
- Added possibility to move /var to CF card
- Added var_flash dir, this dir is allways mounted to the flash dir so can be used for copying the animations
- Proper support for NTSC in OSD. The default MediaPLi skin is properly set so all OSD screens do fit for both PAL and NTSC. Furthermore, all built-in enigma windows are centered, on PAL as well as NTSC. (note that when a widget is defined with a height > 480 there is nothing we can do for NTSC)
- Reintroduced asking for TV system: Now users again can select their TV-system (PAL/NTSC) after flashing, making it easier to properly configure PLi in the setup wizard.
- Added the genoSUAVE North American satellites lists (DishPro / Legacy)
- And we have done even more for our N.A. users: with Flubber, PLi now fully supports the USA DishNetwork EPG. Dish EPG is fully integrated into PLi's enigma, so all currently available EPG viewers will automatically be able to use it. (thx to the Nitro team for the Dish decryption routines)
- The used satellites.xml is now dependent on the timezone which is selected at first startup. After selecting a timezone the satellites.xml used in that area will be copied to /var/etc. For now only Europe and North America are available
- On zap an optional minizap OSD is shown. This OSD will go away after a timeout. When 'OK' is pressed, the minizap will expand to the full infobar. This is nicely demonstrated in the default MediaPLi skin.
- Removed camx/serverng softcam/cardserver and added CCcam v1.2.1 as default in the dm5xx(x) boxes. CCcam is in "ROM" now (and not removable).
- The minimal dm5xx(x) VAR-size is now 27%! Achieved by moving CCcam to "ROM"

- Bouquette down key brings you to the bouquet list instead of poviderlist
- Bouquet up/down in MultiEPG opens the service selector in bouquet mode
- Outside MultiEPG, the bouquet down key now also activates to the bouquet list instead of povider list, so you can conveniently open the service selector and scroll to the desired bouquet, with either up or down
