69'''1 History''' [=#point1.2] ([wiki:Wiki#point0 Contents]) ([WikiStart#point0 Main page])
70----
71[[br]]
72 * Everything started in April 2011. For almost three weeks our Developer Nit secretly worked on the foundation of Titan. After the presentation by Nit Obi and the rest of the team came on board. Everybody was surprised by the rapid development of the Titan Project.
73 * From the beginning the development and source of Titan was nonpublic, as it was not to be foreseen in which direction the development would go.
74 * After a development period of 6 months our hardware manufacturer Atemio declared interest in the project. Looking back at Years of support through Atemio with the Enigma2 Software, Atemio was given main priority for Titan project.
75 * A six-months agreement with Atemio was signed in December 2011.
76 * Due to the good cooperation the agreement was extended and is still in force.
77 * The basic idea for this project originated for various reasons:
78  * due to the missing Python Chip and low CPU speed the sh4 receivers have always had problems with Enigma2.
79  * the constant improvement and expansion of Enigma2 and the TDT Git was comprehensive and time-consuming.
80  * the alternative Neutrino GIT at that time was not layed out to support twin tuner Receivers.
81  * Nit then decided to combine both, the Enigma2 and the Neutrino, to a new Gui which implemented all advantages of both systems.
82  * Neutrinos main advantage has always been its speed
83  * Enigma2s advantage was the ease of integration and expansion with skins and extensions
84  * These two systems combined into one new system was the basic idea of Titan.

155You could try bribing the devs with elaborate gifts :-) flattery will get you every where and agorant requests will most likely get your posts deleted or get you banned from the forum please follow the rules of the forum [http://www.aaf-digital.info/ here].
156[[br]]
157[[br]]
158 
159'''When will this and that feature or function be supported by TitanNit?'''[[br]]TitanNit development is driven by the tasks that are important to the individual developers and to the hardware sponsors Atemio, if you have a funky idea or feature you wish implemented submit a request ticket (see [wiki:Troubleshooting#point12.1 12.1 Bug Reporting], but make an extensive search of the forum and tickets before requesting it as it has probally been sugested before.

167'''Will the instalation of Titan Void my Warranty?'''[[br]]Yes probally but this software is tested to ensure it won't dammage your reciever and can be reverted at any time to a factory condition. please see [wiki:Supported-Receivers#point7 Supported Receivers] for a list of suspected supported receivers, If you have successfully installed TitanNit on your Receiver please inform an admin member so this list can be updated and verified.
168
169If the factory software was so feature packed and bugless there would be no need for software like TitanNit but sadly this is a world where software is driven by sales and purchases by the big players who request features, but TitanNit is a little different it was started just because the users/ devs wanted something better than what was handed to them by the manufacturer.
