//See below for whats New, Fixed & Features//


**Flashing general:**
- When you press the Arrow UP during booting, a Flash Erase will follow, as everybody knows from the DM7000.
When you install a newer image, the backup function is still executed.
Do only a flasherase without backup when you request it explicitly!


== IMPORTANT Flashing DM500 Howto ==

When you upgrade from a DM500 Max VAR image (modified partition layout) to a PLi Garnet DM500 (standard partition layout)
You NEED to flash your box with a serial cable to do the upgrade
Flashing with root.cramfs or with Flash Wizard will fail!

The reason is the smaller filesize of the Max Var root partition:

o Dream BOX jffs2 on a DM500 Max VAR: 0x00600000-0x007c0000
o Dream BOX jffs2 on a DM500 Standard: 0x00500000-0x007c0000

A Max VAR image uses a smaller root partition then a standard image, that's why /VAR is bigger. So if you want to flash a standard image into the running Max VAR image it won't fit in the smaller partition! To get rid of this Max VAR sized partition you need to flash it with a serial (RS-232) cable.


**TV-System Wizard:**
- Replaced by A/V System Settings screen
o This allows setup of your tv-system AND colorformat etc... right after Flashing
o Allow Tux TXT/Multi EPG position setting from wizard. When switching between PAL/NTCS, default position settings are stored
- Show position and size in Tux TXT/Multi EPG position screen
