The Gemini Project 3 (short: GP3) stands for innovative Dreambox extensions as a plugin on top of a existing image - accessible via the blue button of the remote control.

Welcome to GP3

The Gemini team strikes a new path:

We proudly present our new Gemini Project 3 Plugin and the new GP3 Blue Panel for Enigma2 and Dreambox OS based Dreamboxes. The functionality of the GP3 as a plugin is almost identical to the old Gemini images. It offers even more extensions that can be installed over the Blue Panel.

A big advantage of this approach is: GP3 is no longer fixed in the image, as it was before with Gemini Project 2 and Gemini Project. Now it is a Plugin, which is installed in an image the same way as other plugins. The GP3 Plugin has a completely new icon based desktop user interface (comparable with iPhone/Android) and is opened as usual over the blue button.

The installation is done over the Gemini3 Wizard. This little tool, loads the GP3 Plugin from the Blue Panel Server and installs the plugin. After the installation the GP3 Blue Panel can be open over the blue button.

The GP3 Plugin supports OE 1.6, OE 2.0, OE 2.2 or OE 2.5 based Images. The version of the GP3 Plugin differs depending on the image.

  • GP3 for OE 1.6 based Images. Please note the latest available GP3 version is v0.54 and no longer developed. Same remark for the Addons under GP3, no further development.
  • GP3.2 for OE 2.0 based Images (only for HD compliant Dreamboxes)
  • GP3.3 for Dreambox OS (OE 2.2 / OE 2.5) based Images.

As basis for the installation we recommend an OE 2.0, OE 2.2 or OE 2.5 based Image from Dream Multimedia, Merlin or OoZoon.

Images based on OE 1.6 (also the iCVS) are still possible. But the development is discontinued. Our focus for the development is the future of the OE 2.0, OE 2.2 and OE 2.5 based Images. Also keep in mind: an OE 2.0/2.2/2.5 based iCVS Image is not planned at this moment.

The installation of the GP3 Plugin can be found here: GP3 Installation.

Advantages

For the time being, we decided to stop releasing further Gemini images because there are several advantages:

  1. If there will be a new GP3 release there is no need to reflash the Box completely - a simple update is sufficient.
  2. Every user may use the image of his choice.
