    Hello dear,

    I have figure it out and its works like a charm on the same network.

    But i have one more question if i want to put one vu+solo2 (server) in one house and client vu+solo in another house, how it will work?

    I mean to say how i can access one box remotely as a tuner server.

    Your comments will be highly appreciated.

    You must have an advanced network configuration with VPN IPSec or similar one to access the server box from the remote location and a very good upload/download speed from both sides ..... In my country this is not applicable because we have very bad bad connection speeds.....

    To Angelo (and all other experts),

    as you suggested I'm now testing the Remote Channel Convert method.

    Previously I've tested also Tuner Server but I got always an empty folder on the server with no channel bouquet inside (like other users have reported here earlier).

    Remote channel stream works pretty well, and it's by far more comfortable to use than the MediaPlayer for the Tuner server.

    Now I've a couple of questions when using Remote channel stream:

    a) can I now disable Tuner server in the server box?

    b) does the channel streaming require an HDD in the server box? In other words, is the stream continuously written on the server box's HDD before sending it to the client? Since I have a SSD in my Duo2 (the server box), I can't hear the HDD working... and since the SSD has a limited writing life, I don't want to wear it very quickly...

    a) Yes you can disable it
    b) I don't know ...

    Can you hear your HDD spinning when using remote channel stream? Or do you have a SSD HDD too?

    Use Remote Channel Stream Converter plugin located into Menu - Setup - Configure Tuner

    The tuner server creates lists for every custom list but favourites.
    You can duplicate the favourites list into another bouquet, so that the tuner servre builder reads the clon.

    You can avoid doing that manually, either with DreamboxEdit, or with DCC (by duplicating the favourites bouquet and adding a line in one of the bouquet control files).

    Remember to reboot the machine so that the tuner server refreshes the channel bouquets.

    I used to install catseye 28.2e under 'blackhole settings' but that looks different now. Where might I find latest catseye 28.2 and where can I put it?
