Slyk Q EPG

Updates: 14/05/2017: Main fix is openatv 6.0 and vix 5 changed the layouts of the settings pages so the old skin had misaglined text. This has now been fixed. A few other general tweaks and bug fixes carried out.

Support now available on Linuxsat forum

About Slyk Q HD

This is just my enigma2 interpretation of the latest Q skin. Due to the limitations of enigma2 code it can never be anywhere near as fluid as the original, but I have spent a lot of time on the graphics and layout to reproduce the glass effect and layout of the original where possible. A completely original skin and not to be confused with other designer's skins. 

I chose not to include the top picks graphics as I find they just clutter the display and don't bring much to the party.. Usability and speed is more important than being an exact copy.

In my files you will also find a Dreamplex Plugin skin to go with my Slyk Q Skin.


This skin will work on the majority of OE Aliiance builds (OpenATV, OpenVix, ItaltSat etc. Not OpenPli) and the majority of modern enigma2 boxes (ZGemmas, XTrends, VUs, Atemios, Mut@nts, dreambox 800se, Edisons etc.)

It will not work correctly on OpenPLI and Blackhole images. 

To Install

See latest skin link at bottom of this page and download the IPK file in my skin folder. If for some reason it downloads a zip file. Extract the zip so you just have the IPK file.

FTP the IPK file over to your temp folder. var/volatile/tmp.
(if you do not know how to ftp over to your box, please read my barebones install guide in my dropbox, there is a section in there that covers this)

You are welcome to use my Slyk skins in your backup builds as long as you leave my about page and skin.xml details intact. Please also drop me a pm to let me know if you are including it.

You are welcome to include it on any boxes you are selling but my skin is not to be sold separately on ebay.

If posting screen shots on facebook groups or other forums, please reference me as the author. 

If uploading to other forums I would very much prefer you post my dropbox link from below and not the IPK. Bugs are being found and fixed all the time. My dropbox is always the very latest version with all the latest amends.

I don't sell this skin on Ebay. Backup images and skins are freely available on all major satellite forums. Creating a backup image and installing someone elses skin, takes no effort at all. So please don't fund these free riders who only make money from the efforts of others.


Unfortunately support for my skins have been nuked from the Techkings forum. If you are struggling with anything directly related to my slyk skins, you can always drop me an email and I will get back to you when I can.

Beer Kitty

Creating a skin of this complexity takes hours and hours of dedication. I do not create skins to make money. This skin is free and will always be free, but if you want to treat me to a beer (especially people making money from my skin on their boxes and builds), that is entirely up to you and would certainly be very much appreciated.

If you have a Paypal account please use send to a friend method.
