    Is it safe to move settings from VU SOLO 2 to MUT@NT HD51?

    Hi

    I ordered a HD51 which should come in a few days. I was wandering if i can transfer my backup settings from my solo 2 to the mut@nt.
    My solo 2 is primarily used as a client receiver anyway so no softcams are on it. It basically has my mounts loaded and my remote channel stream converter bouquets. The main reason i want to is because my IPTV settings are all on there and i have assigned my EPG using e-channliser. This took me ages so hoping i do not have to do it again.


    Would it work?

    Thanks

    Short answer - No, at minimum you will corrupt the fstab required for the multiboot receivers such as the HD51 ... the boot partition is set into the fstab at image build time.
    ... but 1) use Echannelizer to copy over the bouquets etc or copy directly with Filezilla
    I often build my bouquets on 1 receiver, then use Echannelizer to copy to the others.
    ..........2) if you have modified fstab on your Vu+ you will have to edit the one on the HD51 anyway.... but if you flash a new image the fstab is updated anyway so be careful.
