    Hi Can anyone help me, apologies if i am putting this in the wrong place.
    I have a VU duo running 2.0.2 rev. D

    I have 2 questions : i have added a 2TB HDD so that i can watch movies that i transfer to it, but when i play them after about 10-15mins its starts to bring up the loading icon and then the movies go into slow motion and freeze. I have to turn the box off from the back for it to respond.

    The other question is that is there anything called blank scan? i am trying to find out if there is a way of updating those channels which has a frequency change automatically?

    thanks a million for all your help.

    regards

    Nobody will answer to you for 2.0.2 D question in 2.0.8 thread ;).
    So, update to 2.0.8 and try again your HDD.
    Blank scan? Do you mean Blind Scan (as I remember, not supported by Duo) or FastScan (has to be supported by provider)?

    Reformat your HDD using initialise and remount.

    From BH 2.0.5 it formats in ext 4 which increases performance... See if that helps

    FastScan and Blind Scan are not supported by Duo.

    You need to reformat it so you will lose all recordings (unless you backup to pc)

    You need to press > menu>setup>system>hard drive> initialisation> press ok on your HDD... Then when you see initise in red in box press RED BUTTON

    Once formatted you will need to remount your HDD

    Blue button x2>devices manager>red button and mount your HDD as media/hdd

    Thanks BH lover, i went through this process when i first installed the HDD, but there have been a bit of recordings since not much though. I will try this again over the weekend and transfer movies and try again.
    I will let you know how i get on.
    thanks again.
    regards,

    @Tushar Patel : Before formatting HDD try to remove stuff you don't need from BH Spped Up Panel - Blue>Blue>BH Speed Up, create a Swap file on USB stick and try again.

    hello
    after a lot of research and have tested on OpenPLi the same symptoms persist. Return to BH 2.09. here can not come from quality. mkv or DD .. I stopped to look for the solution, if a mkv. plant, I delete.
