Beta testing RxOS release 4.0 - Skylark. Link in thread!


Is hardware virtualization (VT-x/AMD-v) required for this to work? Because I don’t have a working computer with vt-x support.


For the VM flasher to work, yes VT-x is required.

I could make the script-based flasher available to you, that requires Linux and the sunxi-tools etc. But that comes with no support whatsoever.


theres an even better (IMHO) option coming :slight_smile:


ok I guess I will have to find a computer with vt-x support. I might be able to use a computer at the local computer repair shop.


Never mind I just realized that my compute stick has an intel z3537f processor in it, that has vt-x support. This is going to be interesting.


awesome! do let me know how things work out.


New release is now up! Get it while its hot!

Im having EIP error message in during firmware update

any thoughts ?


your computer either doesn’t have hardware virtualization, or it is disabled in BIOS.


thanks i’ll get on it right now


please switch to this thread:



one way to view the tuner status without being in the UI (if you should so desire) is to use python. this little 5 line program will do it. you can expand on it from there and just parse the elements you want displayed.

import urllib2
import json
url= “ your IP instead
data = json.load(urllib2.urlopen(url))
print data

Okay that was lazy of me. Here is a way to parse the elements of the .json that you want displayed.

import requests
ts = requests.get(‘’).json()
print ts['result][‘rssi’]
print ts [‘result’][‘snr’]

save this as a .py file.
if using linux you can run this every N seconds in a terminal with the following. Assuming you named your file

in terminal type:
watch -n 1 python and hit enter.
This will display the values every second

You can get the DVD image if you decompress the .ova file!


Mine seems to be doing this as well. Is thee anything I can try?


If you are seeing an ERROR -7, then I have no solution. Did we sell that CHIP to you?


Yes you did. I managed to get it working. I don’t think it is the CHIP. I was able to flash a Next Thing image on it using Chrome. I realize that method is totally different but it is was a flaky chip I bet is would have failed


After using the Chrome flasher, are you now able to use the Skylark flasher?
