I would have thought the remote would remove them, and this would take them out of the folder !!

Depends on whether the image you're using is SquashFS or JFFS2 format, m8.

Plugins are usually in /lib/tuxbox/plugins folder. So FTP into the box, navigate to that folder, then try deleting the plugins you want rid of. Each plugin will have 2 files, ending in .so and .cfg extensions.

If you get a message that 0 files were deleted, and you still see the files there, then it's a SquashFS image. This means it's compressed and Read-Only on ALL folders except /tmp and /var (and all subfolders under /var)

If that's the case, get back and I'll tell you a cool trick I learned back in the old SquashFS Commando 9 days, LOL!

Cheers- AL :)
