Gemini 4.4 Vs. 4.6 - 12-March-2009, 23:05

As I am currently using Gemini 4.4 on my DM 600 PVR, I am wondering if there is a need to upgrade to 4.6. In other words, is there a major difference between the 2 images.

Flashing a DM600 is not an easy ride.

Hello!

I would say if the Gemini 4.4 runs good for you, then don't change the Image. But on my Dream i got some troubles with 4.4 if i try to play a movie trough VLCF.
With the new 4.6 it works great.

Best regards

Thanks m8. I would say that I am extremely happy with G4.4. I guess I should stick to this version. I have a PC hooked up to my LCD. It does not get better that that! So I only use VLC through Enigma sort of having PIP when I am watching something else on Winamp for example.

We'd like to thank everybody who paricipated in the "Gemini suggestion" thread. Unfortunatly many things can not be realized from our side.
This images doesn't contain any keys or softcams. Backups or other modified Images are not from us and won't be supported!
Gemini Images may only be used on receivers of the manufacturer Dream-Multimedia-TV.
The use of this Image is on your own risk.

Recommendation:
If you don't install the Image in flash memory, the flash image shouldn't be of a old version. A swap file/partition (>= 16MB) should be present
if several processes running in background. We assume no liability for direct or indirect damage.

Download via Database

Thanks a lot and have fun
Your Gemini-Team
