    VU+ Solo 2 Twin Tuner DVB-S2 HD Enigma2

    Can someone give me a link to how to setup a VU+ Solo 2 Twin Tuner DVB-S2 HD Enigma2 to get all the freesat channels out the box please?
    Or if I just plug it into a sky sat will it find all the freesat channels on its own?
    Also is the Vix image better then the black hole image for this?
    Please help as I am a newbie so I dont know how to set this up yet but with peoples help I will learn

    Thanks

    I'm sure if you plug it in to your dish and scan your get all the free channels.

    Thanks Nistleboy
    One other thing would you say the black hole firmware is better then the Vix firmware?

    thats down to personal choice m8 but blackhole is by far the most popular for the vu+ range of recievers,regards mdt

    Thanks mate so can you also confirm that the best firmware to do loads of extra things with is the black hole firmware I mainly ask cause I am a newbie and I wanna pick the firmware that lets me do the most things with the box and it seems the black hole firmware should be the 1 I should go for

    Because my dish is a fixed dish and setup to get channels from sky will I still be able to get quite a few channels just with the fixed dish?
    Also I have not seen it so I assume this cant pause a program your watching and come back to it after a phone call or am I wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    you can pause live tv, with this box as long as you have a hard drive, usb drive or a nas drive connected so it has somewhere to record

    What's the best option to have: hdd, USB stick or nas drive? I know with a USB stick the capacity is limited......

    I have them both mate but just a Duo I skipped buying the Solo2 to wait for the Duo2.

    Needless to say the VU+ is my main box despite having most dreambox models, id say the VU+ sd picture is not as good as the DMM range but its a small sacrifice to have the 2 tuners and full size HDD.
