I want to update Gemini from 3.30 to 3.60. Is it possible to backup all my satellites, channels, connection config etc. I dont want to rescan and set everything up again.

Thanks in advance.

Connection config and motor settings: No, and the channels and buquets you can backup, but you knew this already because you looked in the guide

Use Dreambox edit to receive settings from DB then reload to updated image:)

Doooooooh! You don't really listen, do you? RTFM, it is all there.

It doesn't backup satellite positions if that's what you meant by settings (that's what settings means to me). It backs up bouquets and channel lists. Try it and see.

I have read somewhere that it is possible to backup sat positions (stored positions) but I can't remember how (sorry!).

Thanks mkhu,

I wanted to backup the satellite positions and LNB config, I know that I can back up channel bouquet's. It was a pain at first trying to setup the monoblock in the setting, I just don't really want to do all that again. I guess its just a case of writing everything down!!!.

Anyway is it worth the hastle updating from 3.30 to 3.60?.

If you're happy with 3.30 I wouldn't bother. I only "upgraded" to 3.50 because I screwed up my 3.10 install.

I'm using Gemini 3.50 and am not so happy with it, and I've heard that 3.60 is no better. The main problem I have is that I cannot reliably record via my network, the box seems to buffer everything and then just crash. According to other people this has been a problem since 3.40 and it is best to stick with 3.30 for now. If you use anything other than Ngrab for recording I would suggest you stay put for now.

And I use Gemini 3.50 and have no problems recording to a PC using CIFS.

Don´t bother if the system is running good now.

Usually only some small, hard to see, bugs that are fixed :)

Wait for 4.0
