PINWHEEL HD MINI File 3rd party Linux Image 3.0 *scan fix*

// PINWHEEL HD MINI file 3.0 (3rd party)

version: 3.0

Changelog for 3.0

1 - *MAJOR FIX* - Fixed the southern satellite scanning issues. If you are using any file from 2.0 - 2.9 and have suddenly started to get strange scanning issues for any southern satellites then please use this file now! It seems that a few days ago, southern provider changed stream data slightly and due to that the 3rd party dvbs2 tuner & 3rd party 8psk Tubro module LS400/LS500 were not properly scanning the satellites and were producing really strange results during the scan!

2 - Accidentally, 9000 VLC port got removed from 2.9 for mini/pro models - FIXED! Now you can enjoy your satellite reception again on any VLC enabled device such as ios/andriod/pc/mac/linux.

Please note that, we highly recommend backing up your server list / channel db file / auto update+messaging url before loading this file as you will have to re-setup everything.
