Wetek Play 1 - Which Wetek OS to Install ?

foxyboyfoxyboy Posts: 18WeTek Community Member
Hi, i have a wetek play 1 and was wondering which wetek os i should be installing ?
I realize there were differences in the boot order so i dont want to break anything.

I would like all the latest updates (android & kodi) BUT i want to boot from SD always as i mostly run Pbnigma6.1 from sd.

Can you install wetekos 1.1.8 with old bootloader ?

Im a little confused and i dont see changelogs anywhere.

Can someone please tell me what i should be looking to install ?

    If you have WeTek play 1, the normal device. I recommend you to stick with Android.
    If you have an OpenELEC edition, then you should stick with OpenELEC / Libreelec OS.

    Unfortunately, android for play 1, is the Android 4, therefore, you will not be able to have the most updated version of Kodi on Android.

    You can dual boot using an SDcard with Libreelec using the most updated version. But since you do use PGnigma already dual booting.

    You need to know what you desire to run and use, and will guide you on how to install it.

    Best Regards

    Thanks for the quick response, yes i have an OpenElec edition. I didnt realise i could dual boot with LibreElec and since i would be limited with androind4 perhaps installing latest libreelec onto nand and configuring it would be the best option. I would be mostly using kodi on android anyway so having libreelec configured on nand as an option would be good.

    I am using Pbnigma6.1 (with kodi 17 embedded) on SD card for viewing satellite, iptv and accessing my nas.

    my phone is older than my wetek and runs Android 7 fine. Won't be buying another wetek with such poor support.

    So which version of this product have you decided to install?

    I ended up with this configuration
    * installed weos 1.1.8 on nand - i simpAly dont use it though as everything on it is OLD
    * installed pbnigma6.1 on SD card which works pretty well with DVB-S2 & IPTV configured, i dont use the Kodi 17 embedded on pbnigma6.1

    I am however experimenting with another wetek play1 with libreelec 9.0
    Its currently installed to a 32gb class10 SD card with TvHeadend providing DVB-S2 and IPTV
    I am trying to get DVB-T2 working with an xbox tuner but the older kernel 3.10 in LE9.0 doesnt support it. A dev in LE may be looking at trying to backport the driver for me. You can use other
    DVB-T2 usb sticks but id like to get the above working if at all possible.
    If LE works out then i may stick with it as i can access everything i want - DVB-S2, IPTV, NAS etc in one place.

    Another option i am considering is to add SAT>IP and Homerun servers to my network and use Rasperberry Pis or the weteks to access everything, may be a little costly though :-O
