1 About (Contents) (Main page)

TitanNit is a semi closed source replacement operating system for kathrein and Atemio/Atevio digital set top receivers. It has come about as the users/devs wanted something better than was currently available. TitanNit is spawned from other projects and is developed by users come devs so it is easy of use but yet still remains powerfull and configurable and feature packed.

1 History (Contents) (Main page)

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A six-months agreement with Atemio was signed in December 2011.
  • Due to the good cooperation the agreement was extended and is still in force.
  • The basic idea for this project originated for various reasons:
    • due to the missing Python Chip and low CPU speed the sh4 receivers have always had problems with Enigma2.
    • the constant improvement and expansion of Enigma2 and the TDT Git was comprehensive and time-consuming.
    • the alternative Neutrino GIT at that time was not layed out to support twin tuner Receivers.
    • Nit then decided to combine both, the Enigma2 and the Neutrino, to a new Gui which implemented all advantages of both systems.
    • Neutrinos main advantage has always been its speed
    • Enigma2s advantage was the ease of integration and expansion with skins and extensions
    • These two systems combined into one new system was the basic idea of Titan.

All these features enable your device to function as a full multimedia entertainment system for your tv for the whole family to enjoy.

What features does TitanNit have?
See the complete list of supported features in the Versions for information of the offically supported features.

Where can I suggest/request a new feature or function to be implemented into TitanNit?
You can log a NEW feature/function request in our tracker. Just make sure that you first remember to search for existing "Feature Requests" before logging a new request/ticket! (see 12.1 Bug Reporting for information on submitting a ticket).

You may also post a copy of your suggestion in the feature-suggestion section of our AAF Digital Forum if you want it open for discussion, Please respect that your request only counts as a suggestion, there' s no guarantee that it will implemented soon or ever.

Almost all users think their own ideas is the most important, and a very common comment is: "if you only add these features then TitanNit will be perfect for me".

You 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 here.

When will this and that feature or function be supported by TitanNit?
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 12.1 Bug Reporting, but make an extensive search of the forum and tickets before requesting it as it has probally been sugested before.

Is TitanNit, or the AAFTeam affiliated with Fortis, katherin or ..... or the hardware manufacturer of my Reciever?
No, TitanNit and its members are not in any way affiliated with the manufactures in any way. TitanNit is a third party operating system designed to replace the manufactures original operating system.

Will the instalation of Titan Void my Warranty?
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 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.

If 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.

Why is TitanNit Not available for my receiver model XXX?
TitanNit is funded by Atemio who supplys hardware to the devs in return for developing software for use on these devices. In future TitanNit may be available for your receiver as support in increaced, at this time Titan in in development for the Broadcom Mips Archeture for the upcomming release of the Atemio 5200 which will be the first non SH4 based reciever supported by TitanNit.

How do I ...
I don't know I suggest you read the Quick Start Guide, manual, check the rest of the wiki or proform a search on the forum, as it has most likely been asked before and you will find the answer, as a last resort post a question on the AAF Digital Forum.

Where should I put videos/music and pictures so that Titan can read it?
Anywhere you like. TitanNit can read off the local harddisk,usb sticks, or from network sources. Simply press "Add a Source" using the network Browser and browse away.


What is the default username and password to the built-in FTP server and telnet server?Both the default password and the user name is “root” (in lower case) as with many linux instalations.

Can I watch recordings from my decoder when on holiday?
