* Multidreambox FlashWizard can now address up to 10 dreamboxes, each one with its Name, IP, Login,Passwd, Multiboot used devices, NFS share status, NFS ip, NFS shared directory.You can easily select the target machine from a drop down list, on any window(Flash and Multiboot), before starting install procedure.All parameters are set-up on Configuration and Utilities panel.The connection parameters for all dreamboxes are saved to "fwconnections.ini"file, the file is encrypted and the passwords are hidden while FW is running.To preserve your connection data, keep that file, and replace it in FlashWizard'sfolder when you will upgrade to a new program release.

* Channels and Favourites are now saved in different "MyLastSettings" dirs,depending on which dreambox is selected.
* Fixed recognizing of old .fwz files in multiboot restore.

* FAQ: What can I install with current FlashWizard, and where?
on DM 7020, on multiboot install (CF-USB-HDD-NFS):- NFI images, with OpenEmbedded structure- NFI images, with Tuxbox-CVS (dm7000-like) structure (i.e.: Neutrino)- IMG images, built for dm7000 with new LZMA compression- IMG images, built for dm7000 (all previous images, from 107.4 to 1.09)- FWZ and FW2 backups of 7020 NFI images, both OpenEmbedded and Tuxbox-CVS- FWZ and FW2 backups of 7000 IMG imagesWARNING:- on 7020, you *must* have in flash a true OpenEmbedded image (no 7000 cvs-tuxbox like!).Make sure before installing FlashWizard on your 7020 to have an OE image in flash.

on DM 7000, on flash and multiboot install (CF-HDD-USB-NFS):- all known DM7000 IMG images, from 107.4 to 1.09Just make sure to have a compatible image in flash when you install a new one.In example, to install a new LZMA compressed image, you must have a LZMA image in flash too.- all FWZ and FW2 backups of 7000 images (both on flash and multiboot)FWZ and FW2 backups can be saved and restored with ALL images in flash, as they don't care of theflash image's kernel/squashfs version.

on other dreamboxes, images on flash and on multiboot on supported external devices.Upload Datum: 23.01.06KB: 1096
