Post A aparut VU+ Solo2
Este un VU+Duo cu noul procesor de 1.3GHz ... iata ce spun cei de pe
VU+ Forum ....


Here we go, this is the long awaited and all new Vu+ Solo2, the now famous
Korean company Vu+ continues to produce new products and with this latest
model, things really have been updated. They have produced this little gem
for the entry level of the market, but its features, as we shall see are
first class.


What we have tested for you is one of the first units that were produced,
but despite this it arrived in its full retail packaging. The classic
cardboard box decorated with a description of the main features of the


Inside the box we find the Solo2 maintains the same dimensions as its
predecessor, a small cardboard box to the right, contains the HDMI 1.4
cable, the classic remote control, already used on the other models in
the Vu+ range (except the Vu+ Ultimo which has a completely different
remote control), the batteries, the external power supply unit and power
cable, 4 screws and 4 anti-vibration rubber grommets to secure a hard


Space for an internal hard drive for this receiver is the first big news
for this little masterpiece. The Solo2 is able to accommodate a 2.5" SATA
hard drive (the ones that are used in most common notebook/laptop computers)
, if you wanted some extra response you could fit a 2.5" SSD drive if you
wish. Also included is the SATA and power cable required to use the hard

Key Features:

Hardware:•Powerful 1.3Ghz Dual Core CPU
•Twin DVB-S2 Tuners

Aesthetically the Solo2 is very similar to the Vu+ Ultimo (although much
smaller), but has a 12 digit VFD display as seen in the Vu+ Uno, in the
centre and on the left hand side is the power button infinity style as
used on the Vu+ Ultimo.

On the right hand side there is a flap that hides the front USB 2.0 port
and also features a single CI slot and below it there are 2 conax embedded
card readers. Note that there are no channel change or volume control

At the back we find many new features, starting from the left side we find
two fixed satellite DVB-S2 tuners, then the inevitable scart socket and
above it a composite output and audio output. In the centre we find the
optical digital output, HDMI 1.4 socket, a gigabit Ethernet port and below
it two USB 2.0 ports, and an RS232 serial connection, on the right hand side
is the ON / OFF switch, underneath is the connector for the external power
supply and finally a cooling fan to ensure things stay nice and cool.

Ok now it's time to look inside the Solo2, on the left side is the platform
for the 2.5" hard drive, in the center, the new cpu Broadcom bcm 7356 1.3 GHz
protected with the classic passive heatsink as seen in the previous Vu+ models,
then to the right the block that houses the card readers and CI slot.
