    Probably way too late, but make sure the filename is in lowercase. Unix differentiates between upper and lowercase filenames, so Splash_cfe_auto.bin is NOT the same as spash_cfe_auto.bin.

    Some months ago I had changed my splash screen and I'm almost sure I used not a 720x576 .bmp file but a larger one.
    Afterwards I installed in flash BH and this replaced the splash screen.
    Now I wanted to put back that splash screen but it seems I can use only a 720x576 (or 720x480) file but the result is obviously a scaled image. Maybe it's me to be wrong, but I remembered that that splash was sharper.
    Is it possible to use a more defined file?

    How to make and change the splash screen!

    1- first you need a picture in .bmp format (picture.bmp).
    2- it has to be in format 720x480 and 24 bit.
    3- if we have it, it's need to be renamed to splash_cfe_auto.bin
    (just rename* the picture.bmp in to splash_cfe_auto.bin) (like this is wrong: splash_cfe_auto.bin.bmp)

    If you have trouble renaming because of Windows dont show file extension name just use Filezilla to rename

    3- copy the file to an empty USB stick FAT32 formatted in the following folder, depending on the box:
    /vuplus/your box/
    (example: /vuplus/solose/splash_cfe_auto.bin)

    4-now you can flash it on your box - the same way, like you are flashing images

    Thanks for this helpful post, I think it should be made sticky somewhere on the front page.
    Just one little suggestion though, yellow fonts are almost unreadable when using white theme as seen in the attached pic, unless the complete sentence has been selected with mouse.
    Preferably blue, or any other color would be fine to highlight some parts. ;)

    Sorry i am using default skin of the forum and that is black and grey where yellow looks good ;)

    But i have taken notice and will not use yellow any more :)

    Many studies about the readability of texts and eyes' health say that a dark theme is much more comfortable for the eyes.
    MacOs itself,for instance, has introduced a whole dark mode in the last Mojave O.S. and many browsers and apps are complying to this philosophy day after day.
    But even in other O.S. a dark background makes text easy to be read.
    Finally, black means pixels switched OFF, white means pixel switched ON and that dramatically shortens the displays' life.
    My advice is to give up with white backgrounds.

    For me it's the same it doesn't work for VU+ Uno 4K.

    ??? What is the same?
    What doesn't work. Six years ago the great Eragon explained how simple is to replace the splash screen.
    Only you need to take attention is to have and identical structure for your file: you can't use whatever picture in whatever format.
