Perhaps it is not related to the firmware being y or s format, but the rewritability of files in the firmware.
Thanks for your reply, now I've got what do you mean. So, then I have to play a bit more with my existing firmware

I paste the link # sed -i "s/USERNAME/YourUserName/g" /usr/local/etc/P61_IMS_V1/scripts/menu.rss I have change YourUserName to my login name on metafeeds and press enter but nothing happened.
Hello, first of all my fw is P0020BC18-61 from this code I think that I have the last official firmware P6.1
I try to enter the code but after I tab enter nothing appear..I made a screen shot of the situation
I try to understand the commands and use google but this is nothing for me, realy
according to this information could you please tell me what I am doing wrong?
Or could you write the code sentence for me - how to change the fav_USERNAME to fav_outofmoney? Outofmoney is my username on metafeeds.
You will make my day great thanks
Open terminal, telnet to your PBO's IP address, then enter the following code :

If it does change nothing, then enter the code :
using arrows(lef/right/up/down) find the entry <!--Metafeeds Favorites-->
under this line you have to find the line :
navigate to fav_USERNAME, hit the button "I" or "Insert" and change USERNAME to outofmoney, then hit ESC and write down the command ":wq!" (without quotes)
Then check if changes have been applied (just in case). Enter the code :
Find the same line which was edited by you before - now fav_USERNAME should be changed to fav_outofmoney
Now you should be able to use Metafeeds Favourites in the main menu

thank you very mutch for your support and time
its fully working, great
For the last few months I was not using the PBO frequently and when I did, I was just accessing the home network, which was working fine. I had hardly used IMS or youtube features. I tried the IMS and youtube recently and both do not seem to work.
I have the following bootcode:
and no internal hard drive.
I want to know if I still can get the IMS services and youtube. If so how can I get it?
Your help is greatly appreciated. Without these, the box would only be a brick for me now.
OK, I started from the beginning of this thread. When I try to run the script, it says no space left on device. Basically it was not able to download the P61_IMS_V1.zip file. It has been mentioned in the thread that I do not need an internal HDD. Why have I run out of space? Where can I do a cleanup?
This is a very outdated post and YouTube is not working anymore with this script; I recommend that you look for an alternate non-official firmware which will give you a little more mileage for your trouble; google PBO wiki.
