Welcome to the PLi® Wiki

It is our goal to make this PLi® WikiPedia:Wiki into a PLi® software knowledge base, with all information imaginable about both the Dreambox and the PLi® firmware images (software).

To achieve this goal, we need your help. All members of this website have write access to this PLi® WikiPedia:Wiki, and can create new pages or update existing pages. When you want to do this, please read the FormattingRules first.

A few details about the software, screen images, menu's, skins and formats you will see in the PLi® Wiki

Do you run a web site which has a PLi® forum or support section? If so, please send jonc a PM with your link and we will add it to new PLi® Wikipedia we are developing

So, what is this Wiki about?

This wiki is the support website of the PLi® development team. We develop alternative firmware for linux based DVB receivers but on this wiki we will only be discussing firmware images (software) for the Dream Multi Media(DM) set top boxes . Currently, we support theVu+ Duo set top boxes and the DreamBox series of DVB-S2, DVB-S, DVB-C and DVB-T receivers. We do not support the new DM100 series of set top boxes (as they are not linux based)

Please understand that;

our PLi® software is tested on and only made for the original Vu+ Duo and DM boxes, and it is important you understand this fact. Other (alternative) boxes may have some incompatibilities, but we can't design for that. Although at the moment there are no plans to support other brands of receivers, this might change in the future.

The new OpenPli .. repository for all E1 & E2 boxes has been released

Contains all the open source code where you can make your own software for the cable (C), satellite (S) and terrestrial (T) versions

A binary image is automatically generated every night (GMT). As this happens without prior testing, we call these OpenPLi images 'unstable', and we have provided a status indicator on the left. For an explanation of the different status values, you can read this page.

For DM500,DM500+,DM56x0,DM600,DM7000,DM7020 boxes only
