    i updated the driver just now
    and i wrote a microscopic script for backup (in /hdd/backup) and install the new driver for the 3.1 kernel images
    in the hope can be usefull to someone

    for update the drivers is enough copy they in the /tmp folder then execute the script (green then blue)
    it show "the driver building date/time" for allow to understand if the driver are successfully changed or not

    remember to restart the box after the new driver installation
    ciao

    did the /etc/bhmachine contains exacly:
    bm750 for the duo (this one is ok)
    vuuno for the uno
    vuultimo for the ultimo
    vusolo for the solo
    ?
    if so, this script install only the correct drivers for the box
    (install just the vuplus-dvb-modules-[/etc/bhmachine contained file] driver package)

    please delete the previous one

    You don't need to do it.
    BH 1.7.3 already contains the last drivers released.

    NO. Different kernel between old image and new one.

    They are NOT compatible.
    Start to BH 1.6.7 there was a kernel change.

    Many thanks that saves me some more troubles ;) looks like an upgrade will be needed to get the latest drivers then. I just installed the USB Volar Green HD tuner in my box and it is working very good hope it will be OK in the newer image.

    In Blachole 1.7.9.-3 I did that:
    "take tar.gz drivers file and unzip all files in
    /lib/modules/3.1.6-12/extra
    and replace old drivers"

    BUT , I noticed that there is a group of 4 identical pack of drivers on the root of my image. The only difference is that they have a different date. They are characterized as 10 -1 -2013 although i have flash the Vu+Solo2 four times since that day and i have update the drivers manualy yesterday. (I extracted the 4 drivers pack inside " /lib/modules/3.1.6-12/extra").

    Is it normal?
    Do I have to DELETE this files on root?
    Do I have to replace them also with the new drivers?
    Has that anything to do with the fact that my Vu+Solo2 stuck on reboot?

    I am using Blachole 1.7.9.-3 with one universe on a usb.

    You have to override the existing files with the new ones and then reboot the box.

    Reboot does not always work, make sure you power off and then back on via the switch at the rear.

    And when you power off, wait at least a minute before turning it on (not only for drivers update, but also after reflash, image update and so on).
    It will saves you from a lot of headaches (verified especially on my Vu+Duo, on Solo2 too).
