    Red face DM500 setup PIN



    It appears that some how I have enabled the setup PIN on my DM500.
    The problem is I dont know what it is. the only PIN I have entered is for the AO channels and that doesnt work for the the setup menu.
    Anyone know a way around this other than having to reflash the DM??

    Cheers
    Rocket

    Have to hide the remote next time you have a few drinks Rocket lol
    I take it you've tried the obvious 0000?

    Your not wrong.

    Yes tried 0000 as that was the pin I put on the AO and it works fine.

    Just got the blooy thing working the way I wanted to. Now looks like I will have to reload it all.

    oh well shit happens.

    ssh into the DM and run this command
    Code:
    cat  /var/tuxbox/config/enigma/config|grep -i "pins"

    Shows the setup pin to be ffffffff which im guessing is HEX so the pin would be 4 294 967 295 decimal. Or I have totaly misunderstood this.

    It apears that "/var/tuxbox/config/enigma/config " cant be edited either. So guess im up the creek.

    ffffffff is the vale when it is disabled, What was the value of enablesetuplock and enableparentallock ?


    Make a new config file without any pins settings. But with all your old settings.
    Code:
    cd /var/tuxbox/config/enigma
    sed "/pins/D" config >confignew
    cp config configold
    mv confignew config

    enablesetuplock=00000001
    enableparentallock=00000001
    parentallock=0000270f (the pin is 9999)
    setuplock=ffffffff

    Now I have to admit to how little I understand linux.
    Can I just enter the commands as you have listed above or do I need to manualy edit the new config file?

    Just copy/past. One line at a time so you see the result.

    ctrl-ins will be paste in your telnet client it ctrl-v does not do it.

    Thanks figured it out.
    This is what happened. Look ok (not that I know any better) but the original config is unchanged.
    Is it write protected??

    root@dm500 ~ # cd /var/tuxbox/config/enigma
    root@dm500 /var/tuxbox/config/enigma # sed "/pins/D" config >confignew
    root@dm500 /var/tuxbox/config/enigma # cp config configold
    root@dm500 /var/tuxbox/config/enigma # mv confignew config
    root@dm500 /var/tuxbox/config/enigma #

    Check the contents of confignew,configold and config

    Code:
    cd /var/tuxbox/config/enigma
    cat config
    cat confignew
    cat configold
    See it is at least writing the files correctly.

    the files are being created correctly up to the point of replacing the original config. It appears to work but the original config remains unchanged as if its write protectred.

    hm, the exact same happened here to me Rocket.
    Just flashed a box with Jade this morning, scanned everything in then tried setting the parental lock and it somehow activated the Setup lock aswell.
    I swear I was sober.
    I wonder if it's a bug in Enigma/Jade.
    Or maybe a bug in humans.
    Thanks for all the linux commands covert.
    I'm reflashing it again.
