About the OpenRSi team

azbox_transparantRSi Team is an initiative of a couple of enthousiasts that made it their goal to produce an AZBox image, which was easy to use and was offering additional plugins that they thought would be a nice for AZBox users.

This started out with the Modified Official Firmware for the AZBox HD models.

The team never thought that the image would be that popular, but since it was, they got motivated to start developing the next images. This time it was an image, based in the RTi E2 Core. The image is known as RSi E2 0.0x


As the fimrware became more popular, software developpers addressed the team, asking if they could be part of this great initiative.

Since then, RSi Team has expanded and has put its energy in building an image, based on the well known OpenPLi images.

With this development, OpenRSi hopes to have given the community a platform on which it can build images, based on a stable and powerful source.

All this would not be possible if the AZBox community would not have the input and knowledge of members of the RTi team. Let’s not forget that this team, and especially The_ripper and Telesat, made E2 available for AZBox.

Also, if OpenPLi did not do such a good job in building software for open source linux receivers, we would not be where we are today.

Azbox firmware is still available, but development has come to a halt.

Finally, OpenRSi would like to thank the following persons for making all this possible:
The_ripper, Sattommy, Pingflood, Telesat, Smudger, Guardian, pcrene, Lange, Xenobyte, Ronnie1966 and Herbie153.

Special regards go to our friends at myazbox.de, opensat4all.com, azboxforum.nl, Perdi, Zeini, Colla, Brombeer and everyone we forgot.
