    Hello

    I got problem with my ultimo, I connect tuner A works fine, when I connect tuner B, screen will be as below, I thought there is problem with tuner itself, removed tuner A and B and checked individually each tuner singe, both tuner works fine alone, problem pop up if only i connect B tuner.

    FYI, I don't have problem with my Duo, i used latest official software release, still problem remains. do you think that i need to upgrade FPGA?

    If you haven't updated it before, do it now.

    I suggest to use dedicated plugin to upgrade FPGA instead to select manual files.

    Thank you Boss
    after update of FPGA via dedicated plugin in BH, tuner B working fine 100%

    Remained Q? Why latest images even original been released while still We need to update FPGA! Why FPGA not included with new images.

    Thank you

    FPGA it's a dedicated hardware chip on the mainboard of Ultimo box and needs a dedicated plugin (operations) to be updated.
    When you update it, you don't need anymore to do the same operations when you reflash and/or change image.
    When Vu+ releases a new upgrade all users will be noticed with this Board and the official Vu+ web site too.

    Actually there is no FPGA upgrade for Duo2 but only VFD controller who increase RC sensitivy :)
    The VFD controller upgrade is similar than FPGA upgrade and it's done via a dedicated plugin

    No. Actually there is no system to detect what version is installed.

    I do not know that FPGA version is installed, if I install the v4.5 already being installed, Would there be any problem?

    Thanks.

    It's not a problem if you upgrade again FPGA.
