    Old receivers not supported can still use Freesat so still handy for use.

    It will still work. You will notice the reboot speed, but for watching TV it is fine. One chap is using Oscam with Icam patch on it and it is fine for watching Sky in SD. His image is 10 years old. You will need a swap file for CrossEPG as it does not have enough RAM. One of the biggest problem with them was the PSU and losing the 5v rail. Keep an eye out for a newer receiver though.

    I meant keep an eye out on offers/deals from retailers/members selling a newer receiver.

    Before you fire it up, it's a good idea to inspect the receiver for any signs of physical damage, such as cracks or frayed wires. You may also want to check the electrical components to ensure they are in good working order.

    Additionally, if you plan to use the receiver with newer devices, such as a modern TV or streaming box, you may need to ensure that the inputs and outputs on your receiver are compatible with these devices.

    Check the electrical components? How? Seriously? It's not an old valve wireless from the 1930s.

    It has an HDMI socket and is capable of streaming. It is just a slow 1080 receiver.

    This TM Twin has the same SoC as the original Duo. By today's standards it is an extremely slow box.

    Literally found my old vu duo today with red light! Also found the capacitors I bought to replace faulty ones! So might give this a try this week.

    Good luck with that... but there hasn't been an OpenViX image for that box for several years now.
