All OV repos are public again!

Well we know who the pirates are now don’t we? Some of them are famous also 😉

The thing is all our repos are public again except two OEs which the last public version of those have been uploaded on github for who’s interested in studying them.

All of our codes are public now for study not for self-building or commercial use as those uploaded OEs need maintenance and we won’t be a part of it so you may be able to build OV with them or you may not and that’s not our duty to make sure you can (find someone to keep them up-to-date for you).

The purpose of this is to make sure nobody could come up with what we (team members) provide, we don’t like our images get renamed/rebranded to something else.

If any kind of code gets copied from our sources needs to mention our name (Open Vision) with the name of the author and the address to our github.

CMD images!

Now we have a new line of images for server lovers “openvision-cmd” instead of “openvision-e2”:

  • No enigma2
  • No GUI
  • Less than half in size
  • OSCam pre-installed
  • Network only and command line

OV is Private now!

Lots of our git repositories are now private and no self building is possible thanks to source steallers.

Only team members could compile Open Vision images till further notice. Certified compilers soon will be able to compile images again.

This is sad news we know but good news is our development continues.

We see:

  • Some people/teams are using our sources without giving credits.
  • Some people/teams removed our donation link.
  • Some people/teams are rebraning OV to something else and removing OV name.
  • Some people/teams won’t publish their sources but they’re using ours.
  • Some people/teams keep good things private and won’t send us PRs so instead of contribution they make private releases and even sell them.
  • Some people/teams are showing fake git repos and their real enigma2 sources are closed or they’re using local patches and some of those public git repos are just for show (Can you believe a team updated enigma2 sources after 6 months with one file change? Yep a bad joke).

This has to end so lets fight the bad guys in enigma2 scene.

We’re not happy to bring you bad news but when there’s no respect some changes are necessary.

The core of each enigma2 image is enigma2 itself and that’s open on our git and we update it for real not a fake repo so if you want to lecture us just keep it.

Let good things happen …

You’re allowed to distribute our images on linuxsat-support again, this decision is not because they changed or something it’s because it’s Christmas so let people enjoy more as it’s not their fault we see stupid users there with bad attitude, still they have a line in our blacklist but distribution is allowed.

I will update SH4 sources again …

Mary Christmas 🙂

The new remote control detection system

Open Vision now has the smartest remote control detection system among enigma2 teams.

Since now we don’t use any kind of dirty python hacks inside enigma2 or Open WebIF to detect remotes.

You need 7.4-r164 or 10.1-r213 at least.

VisionDroid android app

Public releases: http://www.mediafire.com/folder/nlkzsek307bpf/openvision-test-images-by-persianprince (Please share this on all forums)

Sources: https://github.com/OpenVisionE2/VisionDroid

VisionDroid is based on dreamDroid sources: https://github.com/sreichholf/dreamDroid

We need to change some dreamDroid logos and svg files and adapt VisionDroid to be compatible with Open WebIF not Dreambox WebIF.

“Persian Palace” android app isn’t ready yet because the enigma2 plugin should be adapted for Open Vision and I’m working on it (It was for “Persian Empire” images before).

As I mentioned in the news: https://openvision.tech/?p=47 If you know android and enigma2, you could help us make VisionDroid more compatible with Open WebIF.
