Ok here's my review so far for the VU+ Duo.
I purchased mine from this UK supplier *********
When I first received it I was already impressed with the packaging, instructions, the feel of the remote and the quality feel of the receiver.
Next step I connected to TV to test with the original factory image. All was good so I proceeded to flash the receiver with the latest OpenPLi nightly beta builds.
Flashing the receiver with a usb stick is an absolute doddle! See guide HERE
On-reboot the initial setup screens are just like a Dreambox, set your tv output, in my case DVI, set-up tuner configs, parental control etc..Eventually you get to a blank bouquet.
Once setup I ftp'ed standard Enigma 2 settings to the receiver and reloaded channel lists.
Picture quality of both SD & HD definition is fantastic! SD channels display better than my Sky+ HD receiver
Next I powered off and installed a 500GB HDD and tested recording, all worked great. I've got two satellite dishes hooked up to it, one on a rotor and one fixed to Astra2. To test I actually managed to get this baby to record two HD channels and one SD channel whilst watching a fourth channel!
In the PLi download menu you'll plenty of the usual standard Engima 2 downloads. CCcam can be installed from there and there's also a handy XMLTV EPG plugin for 7 day EPG. CCcam 2.1.3 works perfect
Overall I'm really pleased with the VU+ Duo, although there's a few bugs, beings as its new hardware. The worst bug I've found so far is not being able to get MGcamd 1.31 to work, for reason the box freezes when it's enabled.
I've also attached some photos of the receiver.
