    You need to look for vuplus-kodi not xbmc.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but i have been out of touch with the Satellite world and have just started using my VU+ Uno again.
    My query is can you install Kodi/Xbmc on a VU+Uno or is it time to upgrade and if so whicjh would be the best V+ receiver to go for.

    Hi,
    VU boxes starting with the Solo2 can use Kodi. If you have the old Uno (not 4K) then you cannot use Kodi.

    Just a word of warning. Kodi works quite good on VU but it still cannot be compared to a real Kodi-Player like a PC.

    ciao

    vuplus-kodi which is available in the ViX plugin feeds is only available for the Vu+ Solo 4K, Vu+ Duo2, Vu+ Solo2, Vu+ Solo SE v2 & I'm guessing also for the newly released Vu+ Uno 4K and eventually for the soon to be released Vu+ Ultimo 4K. The original Solo, Duo & Uno are not supported and couldn't run them anyhow do to the specs of those receivers. Also the Vu+ Zero doesn't support it.
    But in saying that, to get the best user experience you are best using a device like Amazon fireTV, fireTV stick, Venz v10, Venz v10 Pro etc.

    Couldn,t agree more Andy, for the last few weeks I have been loaned (I have set it up for the owner )a Himedia Q10 Pro 4K HDR media player which apart from playing anything on my NAS media libraries without a hiccup also has Kodi installed. (and a few other things)
    This box is really impressive, extremely fast, easy to use and really does seem to cope with all formats...... but not cheap, however it will be sad to see it go to its owner
    Gigablue Quad 4K ViX Tuner A (FBC -> Unicable Spaun SUS 5581/33 NFA multiswitch 28.2E 4 tuners), Tuner B (FBC -> DUR-Line DCR 5-1-8-L4 Multiswitch 19.2 4 tuners)
    Mut@nt HD51 ViX plus HD51 multiboot support for Images 1->4
    Xtrend ET8500 ViX plus Multiboot support OS1/OS2 image
    Xtrend ET7500 (standard ViX image)

    I wouldn't lump those in together, Venz v10 Pro can do so much more with Kodi than AFTV2, one is a Nissan Prius and the other is a Porsche.

    VU+ Solo4k 2TB, 2xFBC-S2, 2xC/T2, 1x Sundtek .
    1m Motorised Single LNB Dish, 60cm Fixed Octo LNB Dish.

    My FTV sticks and FTV boxes work just fine for my needs and every one else I know who uses them too.
