Hello,
My old OpenBox S6 HD broke down and don't know if it is worth to fix it, as want some more features.
So was looking at VU+ receivers.
I will be watching Astra 19, all free channels, not planning on any subscriptions.
What i want is to be able to stream all tv channels to my phones to watch anywhere in home.

I was told VU+ Zero 4K can stream to mobile devices and is good enough to have. Price is reasonable.
But thinking, maybe it would be anough VU+ Zero for streaming? As not planning to watch 4k, as TV only FullHD :D

Or should i invest more and get Solo 4k, Uno 4k Se, Solo SE V2 (single, dual what does that mean???), Solo2, Uno 4K. These all are available to get for me. But don't want to spend a lot if i will not use it's functionallity.
Solo 4K and Uno 4K se is on the pricer end for me.

Also was told Zero 4K can have HDD to record, pause movies, is intrigued, but would it work from phone when watching to pause and resume?
Also is 100Mbit ethernet enough for streaming?
Also can i stream too 2 devices at once different channels?

If you only want 19E then the Uno or the Zero will be fine.

If you want more than one dish feed (multiroom) you might consider the Solo 4k as this is what dual tuners are for. However, Vu+ boxes now come with FBC tuners so you can watch more of the other channels while recording whereas you were pretty limited to 1 or 2 before.

As an example I do not have HD tuners in any of my TV's and thus I use a receiver with an additional DVB-T2/C tuner so that I can tune into terrestrial Freeview HD. I am motorised but do not use multiroom so a single DVB-S2 Tuner on a single LNB does me fine. So if I were buying now I would be looking at something like the Solo 4K which has the facility to cater for my setup and the additional convenience of having a plugin hard disk slot.

100M/s is plenty to stream but bigger is always better. :snicker:
Never tried streaming separate channels so can't answer that one apart from saying that if possible to do then all the boxes are more than capable of handling that sort of workload.

Good choice for single sat or even motorised. Not sure the comment about it being better for streaming can be true, sorry. Also no option to expand tuners to T or C if you decide you need to later on.
