I was running out of memory so I took rolf's advise and bought a USB memory stick Sandisk Cruzer Micro 1GB.
And since the USB connector was already used by a USB keyboard, I bought a USB 1.1 hub for four devices.

Then I started to read about how to format the stick and move the /var to it.
I read all the threads and posts, and I thought that I would use either Telnet or FlashWizard and see how it will go.
Fortunately, the Gemini 4.0 image took care of everything.
These are the steps:

Formatting

With the USB stick in, blue panel > Extras / Settings > USB-stik(Disk) formatting >
popup
Formatting USB Disk
Cruzer Micro
Start (Green Button)
Are you sure ?
Yes (Green Button)
Formatting USB Disk
Done in less than 1 minute !!!

Mount and var move

Extras / Settings > Var-Folder >
Move
from /var
To /var/mnt/usb/gemini/var
Start (Green Button)
Are You sure you want to move this
/var
to
/var/mnt/usb/gemini/var
Yes (Green Button)
Restarted Enigma

After the box restarted, I noticed that the Var-Folder disappeared from the list.

The box worked as usual.

When I tried to add a large size plugin, I didn't get the error message about not enough memory.
When the download started, the bar showed only about 2% !!!!:)

USB Hub

Shutdown the box
Disconnected the USB stick and connected the USB 1.1 4-way hub
Then connected the USB stick and the keyboard USB plug into the hub
Switched on the box and both the stick and keyboard working as usual.

I would like to record with the USB stick. Didn't find anything in the menus. Only recording with HDD in the meantime.
Would appreciate a tip on howto.

Please update your profile:
Location, dish (fixed or motor.), receiver model, dish size, pointing to which satellite.

I think that the 500 doesn't have a USB slot so how are you trying to mount the Var to a USB stick ?
This is probably why the Var-Folder doesn't show in your menu.
Upgrade to Gemini 4.0 if you have an older versions.
