Hi Guys,

Picked up a cheap BT vision box with a 160gb pipeline hdd from the booty merely for using the hard drive though for some reason I backed up the winCE files to an external drive.

Today after messing with a YouView box (Huawei) I went back to fiddling with the bt vision, plonked a 320gb hard drive (have since used the 160gb) and created a fat32 partition with the files copied into this.

After trying the upgrade process (hold down and ok whilst powering on) I have upgraded to the linux version (captured a pcap file via dspolit on my rooted phone but dont think its got the right info after doing ip lookup).

I'm going to try and find someone with a BT vision sub and activate the box then see if I can use the on demand players on my own provider (plusnet which is still bt?).

Also not sure why but the 320gb has been filled with slc files (maybe empty containers for saved recordings?)

I also looked into the DM500HD firmware but not sure if this would work as a DVB-T box as the DM500HD only supports DVB-T via USB i think from what I read???

Will play with box again next week and post my findings.


Hmm Interesting..
Any URL's in the pcap file? is there a way to do a forced update again, and see what url's it gets its software from?

Just tried updating mine again and it still is on the winCE :(
I also noticed on your screenshot, that your box is ALSO on the winCE version as well!

Part of the capture (where it gets its firmware)..
