THE BOX

The VU+ Solo2 has a polished sleak look to it. With it’s Powerful 1.3GHz MIPS based CPU, 1GB DDR3 DRAM, Gigabit LAN and many other features, it makes it the ultimate box to have as part of your entertainment system. The qulaity, speed and reliability blows other manufacturers away. This box also has the capability of installing an internal 2.5″ hard drive, for all your recording needs.

I have recently tried and tested other boxes, like the Wetek, Venton HDE and Zgemma H.2S, but the VU+ Solo2 takes enigma into a totally different league.

REMOTE CONTROL

VU seem to have the same theme going on with the remote, a polished look. The look and feel of the remote you can sum up in one word ‘QUALITY’, the buttons are very responsive and when pressed indicates the TV button with a red LED. It took me a while to get used to it and especially to find recorded programs but I eventually got there, the button to the right of the MENU buttom takes you into your recorded program guide.

This remote can also be programmed up to operate your TV, so bye bye TV remote, an all in one solution that even the wife can work.

VU+ iPHONE APPLICATION

There are many, many apps out there, that will allow you to view the channels from your Enigma device on a mobile or tablet, but NONE have there own app. VU+ has created an app especially for your device, with a little bit of port forwarding, you can also view the channels when your out and about. Features are listed below for Apple products.

WORKING PRODUCT

After testing many devices in the past, the VU+ Solo2 has got to be hands down the fastest box i’ve worked with to-date. With a boot up time of less then 20 seconds, a GUI refresh at 5 seconds, and instant play of IPTV, this certainly will take some beating. The sylish LED display as shown in the picture shows what channel is being viewed, whilst on the picture next to it shows that it can do PIP/PAP (Picture-in-picture/Picture-against-picture). This receiver is capable of viewing 2 HD channels via PIP/PAP, where lower ranger models can’t.

Below you will find a demonstration video on how the VU+ responds to channel change, IPTV playback, Dreamplex and Full Kodi………..Yes you heard, this box is also capable of running a full kodi platform and it runs smooth as silk.

Hopefully this review will be one of many to come. I am always open to reviewing different products and look forward to the next big product, but I do think that this one will take some beating!
