    What surprised me was the tuner sensitivity, i didn't expect it to be this good.
    I agree with you Likvid. My Vu+ Duo is better than my DM800, for sure. I have always been a die hard fan of Dreambox, but they have got some serious competition with this receiver.
    Of course the DM8000 may be even better, I don't know, it's just too expensive for me.

    Hi all, I'm new to this, so this forum is a mine of information to me. My VU+ will be delivered in a couple of days, so I'll write a review from a novice perspective once I've got my head around it. Been reading the enigma2 ftp tutorial, looks pretty straight foreward. Just hope I don't brick it

    Regards,

    thanks for your post/offer, and hope you enjoy the forum, and your unit as well

    the unit itself is well eastablished, and whilst your comments would be welcome, in the main, it would most likely be old news

    in any event, it will take a time to really understand the unit, but plenty of willing help here, if you need it
    Units; VU+Ultimo/duo/DM800/7020HD/tm9100
    1.2 channel master/quad feedhorn/36volt /vbox
    1 fixed dish, and 1 motorized 1mtr dish
    and a pile of redundant cards/cams

    Thanks basilyoung,

    No doubt I'll need help. Figuring out the best image to use to start with. Openvix?, Blackhole? Can't wait to get started.

    If it's an original VU box, it's pretty hard to brick.
    Everything is straight forward if you know what you are doing, but a basic knowledge of using ftp & telnet goes a long way on any E2 box.
    Enjoy the box, try different images & settle on what you think is best... (VIX)

    Hi basilyoung,

    I ordered it from World of satellite, which brought me here. I've asked for the vix image pre installed, but there's enthusiastic blackhole users on here too. It's gonna be a steep learning curve.

    The best thing i can suggest is to setup the receiver with the ViX image it will ship with, then make a full set of backups and try a few other images.

    once you fine the one you like you can stick with it or if need be return to your ViX backup.

    Thanks phoenix as a noob to all this as well, I too purchased a vu duo + from wos.com and I selected the ViX image and wasn't sure, you have just answered my question also
