Review Vu+ Solo2 By Black Hole

    PQ in Solo2 is excellent, better that in DM800 I used before. Tuner sensitivity is better too. I have tested various images on Solo2 ( latest BH, VTI, VIX, PBNIGMA) in multi-boot environment. All images work well and are stable enough. PQ of HD channel transmitted via LAN is excellent too due to 1GB LAN I used with Solo2. I must say that PQ depends on image configuration ( particularly, I recommend you not use various PQ software improvements) and the comparison is correct when similar configs are used.

    You have not understood me. I booted BH from flash with fresh SSD installed. No visible SSD after 3 reboots of BH! Then I rebooted in VTI via MeoBoot. It detected the SSD immediately. I made SSD formatting and reboot again BH from flash. It had seen the SSD. I may conclude that a) BH does not see unformatted SSDs, b) meobooted images ( at least VTI) CAN SEE AND FORMAT fresh SSDs, c) BH see the formatted ( ext3) SSDs.

    I do not have such experience with SSD
    true I tested earlier than you
    Your conclusion is standing on wobbly legs.

    I agreed that Solo2 has sensitive tuner, but in my case I had to spent 15mins just to scan one satellite..! why it take too long to scan? My config. Dual C/ku Lnb's and with Motex postioner.

    For sure you need, because I dont have any issues on those channels. Using BH 2.0.3 on my Solo2 (without Meoboot).

    I got my new solo2 last week and installed last BH image.
    I added an internal HDD + DVB-T usb stick.
    Everything worked fine and from the begining.

    But: I have a weird problem and was wondering if someone got the same.
    I notice a degradation of the picture quality over time (kind of saturation/yellow on the picture after few hours) and everything is restored fine after reboot.
    I haven't tried yet another image to compare and I didn't test the original image to see.

    Any clue?

    This have nothing to do with image and software side.
    It seems an hardware issue.
    You can test other images to be sure that it is an hardware problem.

    Try to change advanced picture settings, just +-1 (hint from other forum, try also other images).
  13. scipion

    scipion Vu+ Newbie

    I tried that and it is ok at the begining.
    But it seems to change over time without change in the values of the settings.

    So you think that it will also happen with the original image?
    Because I didn't use it for a long time - just tested and then installed BH.
    Maybe I need to do this revert to original image and see.

    yes and PLEASE open a thread in the right section.
    You are off-topic here.

    I'm kinda new in this whole Vu+ (Solo2 BlackHole 2.0.4) game but got it setup in a very nice way and am still discovering new ways the box (running BH image) can surprise me ;)

    And it only sometimes like today, when watching 2013 Moscow World Championships in Athletics,Yelena Isinbayeva attempting to beat the 5.07m World Record...
    ... and the whole box freezes completely. No audio, no video - only her face frozen just seconds before the first attempt.
    Most of the times it is working OK, but moments like that make me nearly throwing it out through a window!

    The only remedy is to kill the power to it.

    I'm just wondering here if it is only my problem or these tuners just have a weak second from time to time...?

    i bought a solo 2 a month ago to replace my duo box,and i have to say that i am not that impressed with it.
    First of all the tuners are abysmal compared to cheaper Linux boxes that do the same job.
    Now before someone jumps down my throat, i know the solo 2 or any other vu boxes are not in the dxers class of receivers, but when you do a manual scan of a satellite it does not find channels that were previously stored on my box and had watchable pictures not pix elated but had a SNR of between 29 and 32.
    The other thing that let me down with this box, is that there is no blind scan,and even though i update my satellite XML file on a regular basis it still does not make up for a good old fashioned blind scan of a satellite.
    I keep reading that it is a driver issue with the blind scan,and i keep reading that vu are working on it,but thus far nothing.
    Picture quality etc on the main satellites cannot be faulted,and the blackhole images are great,but as i said for the price of the boxes i expect better tuners.
