1. Introduction

We have prepared for you a ready-made OpenATV 7.0 firmware with Oscam iCam v8 installed and configured for Vu+ Zero (MIPS cpu)

Attention! After installing the firmware, all data on your receiver will be deleted! Including your scanned channels, etc. Therefore, before installing, we strongly recommend that you make a full backup of your receiver!

After installing the firmware, you will need to make some settings – if necessary, change the configuration of your tuner, as well as specify your data for connecting to the CS server.

If you don’t have a Vu+ Zero receiver, please read another article!

2. Firmware installation for Vu+ Zero (MIPS cpu)

  1. Format your USB stick with a FAT32 file system
  2. Download the USB image from HERE
  3. Extract the USB image (it is a .zip archive) on your PC using your favorite unzip tool to the root directory of your USB stick. The result is that you get a directory vuplus and in this directory you find a directory zero in which you find the necessary files.
  4. Disconnect all USB flash drives connected to your receiver.
  5. Insert the prepared USB stick into the back of your VU+ Zero receiver
  6. Switch your VU+ Zero off (power-off, not stand-by!). Or choose restart in your receiver: Menu -> Standby / Restart -> Restart and go directly to step 8
  7. Switch your VU+ Zero on
  8. The white led will quickly flash two or three times then start to fade in and out slowly.
  9. The flashing is done when the led light rapidly blinks on the front panel.
  10. Switch the power off and on again to reboot.
  11. Please not: if after the reboot the Vu hangs on the Vu flash logo, then power down, using the power switch, wait for 20 seconds and then power on again and OpenATV will boot nicely
  12. Go to step 3

3. Setting up the receiver after flashing

3.1 Tuner Configuration

If, after flashing and turning on the receiver, the “kabel eins” channel did not work for you, then you need to change the tuner settings. To do this, go to the MENU -> Setup -> Reception -> Tuner Configuration section and configure your tuner.

3.2 Obtaining the IP address of the receiver

By default, the receiver should obtain a network address automatically (DHCP). To find out, you need to go to the section MENU -> Information -> Network

Connection status must be Up / Active, IP address must be defined (In my case it is 192.168.1.219)

If for some reason your receiver did not receive an address automatically, then you need to set up the network manually. This can be done in the section MENU -> Setup -> System -> Network -> Device Settings -> Adapter Settings

3.3 Setting up the Oscam

You need to add your access parameters to Oscam. To do this, open the Oscam Web Interface in a browser using the IP of your receiver. Oscam Web Interface is located on port 8080. In my case it is:

http://192.168.1.219:8080/

You need to go to the Files -> oscam.server section, specify your connection data taken from the billing and click the Save button.

Don’t forget to click the Save button!

4. Reboot the receiver

Please reboot the receiver completely after setup. Do not turn off the receiver from the socket, but reboot it through the menu MENU -> Standby / Restart -> Reboot

After rebooting the receiver, you can go to the Sky Deutschland iCAM bouquet and enjoy watching.

5. Additional Information

Installed firmware has a root password for remote access via SSH / Telnet:

Login: root 
Password: icam2022

We recommend that you change the root password, and restrict or disable remote access if you do not need it.
