    This may help.

    Program what is usually used to make boot/background pictures is TMPGEnc

    So little brief for using TMPGEnc:

    #1 Download TMPGEnc from official site
    #2 Unzip the file to your chosen destination.
    #3 Double click the 'TPMGEnc.exe MPEG Encoder' file and click 'OK' on the small pop up window and then click 'Cancel' on the 'Project Wizard (1/5)' window that appears.
    #4 Next screen, bottom right...'Stream type', check the box 'ES (Video only)'.
    #5 Next, bottom left...'Video source:' click on 'Browse' and select the background/photo that you want as your new boot logo for the Dreambox.
    #6 Next, bottom left... 'Output file name:' click on browse and choose the path for your finished 'new' boot background/photo and edit the name to 'bild' (minus the '....' and in lower case) ie: the line that apperars in the 'Output file name:' should read similar to C:\Documents and Settings\Whatever\My Documents\bild ( the actual name of the photo does NOT appear).
    #7 Next, bottom right...click on 'Setting' and check that the value settings are:

    .....'Stream type:' = MPEG-1 Video
    .....'Size' = 720 x576 pixels
    .....'Aspect ratio:' = 1:1 (VGA)
    .....'Frame rate:' = 25 fps
    .....'Rate control mode:' = Constant bitrate (CBR)
    .....'Bitrate:' = 12000
    .....'Motion search precision:' = Normal

    When checked, click 'OK' to exit the screen.

    #8 Top left click 'Start', if all is goes well, the '100%' bar appears and your completed 'bild' file is to be found in your chosen 'Output...' location.


    Transferring the new 'boot' photo to the Dreambox.


    ENSURE that the image that you want to change the boot/radio background pictures for, is the image RUNNING in the Dreambox when editing.

    With the image, that you want to change the boot photo for, running in the Dreambox, open your chosen FTP prog and transfer your new 'bild' file to the path: 'root/platform/kernel', you can overwrite or delete the pevious 'bild' file that exists.

    Exit your FTP prog and reboot the Dreambox.

    You should, if all ok, see your new photo on the next boot.

    *** If You want to change boot picture before compressing image (after command make rebuild-flash ) , just copy it into /tuxbox-cvs/root/cdkflash/boot/root/platform/kernel before executing command make flash-compress
    Also try this...

    Folder /share/tuxbox/enigma/pictures is used for SHARED PICTURES.
    What is inside:
    * skin folders/pictures
    * countries folder ( with pictures )
    * main menu ( default ) pictures
    * scan picture
    * radio picture
    * mp3 picture

    File what You find inside called: NABLOGO is probably logo picture from menu: MAIN - INFO - ABOUT

    if it's in /share/tuxbox/enigma/pictures you will need linux to edit it as only /var is editable on the box.

    @fergy and your point is ????

    I got the impression that witchy2k1 was under the impression that NABLOGO was maybe the file he needs to edit/change and I was pointing out the requirements to attempt this.

    Update
    Just loaded on the image and had a look in
    /etc/init.d/rcS
    and found this
    Code:
    Only members can view code.
    If you load nablogo into logoviewer or double click in windows and open with media player classic then you will find it is a standard dbox type bootlogo with the extension removed, rename it nablogo.m1v as all they have done is remove the .m1v to attempt to fool people.

    As I said before you need linux to edit the root and you will need to do that to replace the bootscreen
    You can put your own in later in the /var section but it looks tacky having the 2 screens
    make a file called init
    Code:
    Only members can view code.
    and unrar the attachment and put it into /var/etc then reboot and it will show the old screen then the new screen.
    logoviewer will turn most things into an .m1v for you

    Have Fun

    Excellent, thanks mate.

    You don't happen to know of a live version of Linux that will fit onto a 256mb mem stick do u?

    Any chance i could get access to the Dreambox development section, I'd like to learn how to customise my box

    UPDATE :

    Ok, I found a few small Linux Live discs and I opted for SLAX Live (writing this on it), now all I need is Linux lessons

    PMSL

    UPDATE :

    I've managed to Telnet into the Dreambox with Xtrem and I've managed a FTP connection with something called MC, I'm just about to unpack the rar file and send the contents across, oooh the excitement!

    why should it ?

    the command line is quite clearly
    /bin/showlogo /share/tuxbox/enigma/pictures/nablogo

    I have tested your method and it doesn't work.
    if the line had said

    Code:
    Only members can view code.
    then your method will work but it doesn't and the method doesn't work.

    ps it's a nice image pity no infobarepg
