Works fine on other 4K boxes so must be fixable. So looks like this is something Vu+ will need to release a driver update for. Surprised this was not tested before release.

Hi all
I'm about to ditch SKY-Q and go for freesat... After weeks of research I have narrowed it down to either this vu+ duo 4k or the vu+ uno 4k se..
I will also add a 2tb internal hard drive, run kodi and maybe some iptv... What box should I go for? is the duo a lot faster?
Which would you get and why?
Thanks

I have now DUO4k and UNO4k , both is perfect but new duo4k is briliant and quicker with 2,5 HDD case.
Just drivers for images must be corected , need more time. For me no problem, VTi is now ready.

Although there has been nothing official from vu+ i believe this is true, something i heard is the chip being no longer available with covid-19 being the main reason.

Looks pretty much the same spec to me. Perhaps it has a decent remote that will last longer than previous one. cfsd

.........but it looks just like what I have been waiting for. Time to start saving my pennies........... :mutley:

So, do I own a museum piece? Is the Duo4K rare and now highly valued? Or, more likely, will there be no further software development for the original Duo4K making it obsolete. After having a Solo2 for about 6 years I swapped it out for my Duo4K only 10 months ago. Beginning to regret it now.

I imagine software updates will continue just as they have for the other discontinued 4k models.

I have this box & it is massive. Sizing was really not well thought out when they designed it. I'd sell if it were mine. :mutley:
