Access level or User Mode

OpenPLi has a lot of options in it’s menu. Some are easy to understand, and some are not so common used. So as of OpenpLi 7.0 we reworked the menu’s Setup and added a User Mode. The main goal was that the access level can be set to Normal/Simple, Advanced and Expert, each mode reveals more options/settings in the menu Mac Changer.


Note: When you flash without a restore and use the installation wizard, you will be asked which User mode you prefer, but if you restore from backup you will have to set it manually, by default it is then set to Normal and thus there are a few options/settings missing Mac Changer.

Accessing your receiver and editing files using the command line

You can change many settings using the Graphical User Interface (GUI), but in some cases it can be necessary to access the files manually. You can do this by downloading and using Putty. By default you can login with telnet, so if you use puttytel.exe Mac Changer (a Telnet-only client) and login your box. By default there is no password for the root, so login with “root” and so you should not have to enter a password.

Telnet usage Mac Changer

By default the enigma receiver does not have a password. To access the receiver via de command line, use a program like Putty, or use the command ‘Telnet’ from the commandline. By default telnet may not be enabled, in Windows, please search the internet how to enable telnet in windows or install and use Putty

telnet <ip address receiver>

Connected to
Escape character is '^]]'.
Username: root
Password: no password, leave blank

Telnet with Mac OS High Sierra

With the arrival of Mac OS High Sierra, the Telnet command has been removed. You need to use network connect (nc) instead of telnet the syntax to use is: Mac Changer

nc ip_of_box 23

How to use SSH instead of Telnet Mac Changer

SSH runs on OpenPLI by default…. But, to use SSH you need to set a password first.

First Login with telnet. (See above)
Then change the password with the command ‘passwd’.

root@et7x00:~# passwd
Changing password for root
Enter the new password (minimum of 5 characters)
Please use a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers.
New password: 
Re-enter new password: 
passwd: password changed.

Then close the telnet session

root@et7x00:~# exit Connection closed by foreign host.

Ok, now the box is ready to be accessed by ssh:

ssh [email protected]
Warning: Permanently added 'p247,' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
root@p247's password: 

Remark: When you connect for the first time with ssh, you’ll get a fingerprint notification. You can accept this by typing ‘yes’

RSA key fingerprint is SHA256:x2iV/az3N6IVgWYEpAw4mDE5ahaRX2hEDb7xxEgaVO9. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

I forgot my password

If you forgot your password or used an extension for changing it with OpenPLi you can clear the password by editing the first line in /etc/shadow which contains the hash of your password. Just delete the second parameter. Mac Changer
This file is protected against change, so you first need to allow the owner to change it.
chmod 600 /etc/shadow

then edit the file


root:.3nwZcSK66fbg:15617:0:99999:7::: \\with password:

root::15617:0:99999:7::: \\without password:

And protect it again:

chmod 400 /etc/shadow

How to create a log file of your Putty session

If you want to record what is happening during your Putty session here is how you can let Putty it. Mac Changer

Install an IPK file

When you come across a plugin that you want to install in OpenPLi, you can do this with one of the following 2 methods:


Using the graphical user interface

  • Copy your IPK file to a removable medium like an USB stick.
  • Then in OpenPLi goto the Main Menu -> Plugins -> Software management -> Install local extension
  • Then select your media
  • Select 1 Install extensions, select the IPK file and press the green button
  • Now your IPK will be installed and if everything is nicely coded there should be no error messages
  • Reboot your box and if all is well then under Plugins your program should be there.

Using the command line interface

copy your IPK file onto your box to the folder /tmp

– login your box with Telnet (Putty) and enter the following commands at the command line:

cd /tmp
opkg install pluginname.ipk

Note: if you’ll reboot the IPK will be removed from the /tmp folder as it is a temporary folder!!

Accessing the receiver using a (internet)browser

When you want to access your receiver (for instance like accessing your recordings or movies) you can use the explorer (Windows) or finder (Mac) or your favorite Internet browser, Firefox, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera or whatever:


  • Click Start button – Click Run and enter:

Open your browser (FF, IE or ME) and enter the following:



  • In your browser (FF, Iceweasel) enter the following:


  • In Finder, select your receiver name at the left side. The common name is your receiver type, like et1000, HD2400

If you want to edit the samba config file at your receiver it is located at:


Note: OpenPLi 6.x uses Samba version 4 and the syntax is very different from the version used in OpenPLi 4

Adding IP Camera’s to your channellist

It is possible to watch your IP Camera on TV. Here you can find the necessary information.

AutoBackup between different receivers

You can use a Backup made by AutoBackup between different receivers. But there are 3 pitfalls.

  1. You must be sure that the Video mode, 720, 1080i, 1080p, 2160p or what ever, can be set on the receiver that you are restoring/autoinstalling the AutoBackup you made from the other receiver. If it cannot cope with the video mode the screen stays black and you cannot see what you do after it boots.
  2. The same as pitfall number 1, but now for the TV, you must also be sure, the TV that connects to the receiver you do a restore/autoinstall can handle the video mode!
  3. When the receiver has WiFi (WLAN) also activate LAN, as sometimes the receiver you restore WLAN won’t function and than you can use LAN also.
