my configuration: DM8000, network tuner: NessieDVB (2 x S2)

NessieDVB ( is a DVB-S2 network tuner. I 
can perfectly use NessieDVB over vTuner plugin (0.2-20120104-r5) on my DM8000, 
but ONLY on this one old image: OpenPLi 2.1

But I can't use NessieDVB on all this actual images: OpenPLi3, DMM-OE2, 
Merlin3-OE2, Newnigma-OE2, OoZooN-OE2...

I think we need a new version of vTuner plugin with DVB-S2 support for Dreambox 
OE2.0 Images.

Can you tell me which image vendor from yours mentioned is willing to help us 
with debugging what was changed? If any.

I have dm800 (very old, first revision), just cleaned it from dust and now I'm 
able to flash any image for testing purpose. But would be better if somebody 
from image vendor's team is able to help us with it.

I don't really know which image vendor could help us with debugging, but I 
think this can be difficult.
But in the meantime, after the last updates I noticed that on this new OE2.0 
images, vTtuner plugin is partially running. This is the actual sutation:

All standard operations like zap, save, PiP, EPG, etc are somehow available. 
But there are two principal problems

-Issue 1: Enigma2 hangs when the InfoBar is shown or you press the OK gutton.

-Issue 2: I can actually use ONLY ONE vTuner.

'Issue 1' affects only new images: OpenPLi3, DMM-OE2, Merlin3-OE2, 
Newnigma-OE2, OoZooN-OE2 - but not the old OpenPLi2.1. 'Issue 2' affects all 

I think the best way for you to check the situation is to flash two images on 
your dm800: OpenPLi2.1 (an old one) and Merlin3-OE2 (a new one).

Sad that never images still dont work, was thinking about buying nessie but as 
it doesnt have support for newer images I think its a waste :( openpli-2 latest 
works with SD channels but not HD 8PSK and openpli-3 get channels from 1 
transponder and stops scanning after that.
