Thread: Which Image (Vu+ Solo - Clone)


Forum: VU+ Solo Receivers

OK, I know this is very subjective I have received my new Vu+ solo Clone V2 today and I am already massively impressed. After struggling along with my TM for a very long time I know I'll never go back :) But, the question..... It came with VTI 4.1 on it which seems very good.

    Which Image (Vu+ Solo - Clone)

    OK, I know this is very subjective

    I have received my new Vu+ solo Clone V2 today and I am already massively impressed.

    After struggling along with my TM for a very long time I know I'll never go back

    But, the question.....

    It came with VTI 4.1 on it which seems very good.

    What other images to people prefer and why? What is the killer features?

    Thanks, Just putting Black Hole on now.
    Liked the VTI image but tried Vix because it had all the good press. couldn't get the skin to work properly and just didn't feel as nice. Going to give this image a couple of hours but then may revert to VTI

    Don't you love Linux receivers....

    Re: Which Image (Vu+ Solo - Clone)

    Over the last week I have had the pleasure of working on the following receivers:
    TM500 TM600 DM500 DM800 openbox s10 Spiderbox 900 and the VU+.

    The VU is miles ahead of the others for picture quality.

    Re: Which Image (Vu+ Solo - Clone)

    I tried blackhole and vti and I love VTI 4.1 + valihd skin.
    Everything that I need works at once : dvbt, usb hdd..

    By the way, Im a bit worried due to the heat coming out of the box, especially at the psu side .Is yours the same? can anyone compare with original?

    thanks

    Re: Which Image (Vu+ Solo - Clone)

    Having tried every image I could find I have to agree that the VTI 4.1 image is definitley the best.

    It just does what it says on the tin, straight out of the box. Mapped my media centre share as the hardrive and now everyone in the house can watch the hd recordings

    This is the box (and image) that I have been looking for for the last couple of years (just wish I'd bought the duo now...... Think I may ebay the tm600 and tm800 and buy a duo....

    As for heat, mine seems ok so far.

    "psu blow up on me" that even worries me even more...

    it is not burning but quite warm, maybe a drawback of internal psu

    UPDATE:

    Even the wife is happy with the Vu+ !!!!
    Given that excuse, the Technomates are already on Fleabay and the Duo is ordered.

    Impulsive me ? Never
