That's just a graphic on the front, the light glows in the middle, just to make sure though I have just taken the lid of and as I though, no button!

 

afaik the Solo SE, like the Zero, needs a 'force' file which causes flashing to start automatically when the USB image is detected.

 

 

I have the force file in the folder, its just not working.....Man this is such a pain, I didn't have this issue with my zero!

Man the light is also an SOFT TOUCH button. Try it - nothing to lose.

Does anybody have a guidance what USB stick to use for the Solo SE ?  as the 4G requirement is already overwritten as Jim uses a 8 GB. My Sony 8GB is connecting correct and can be mounted, but no luck with flashing. 

 

Is there are way to load it from the Vu+ image over the ethernet to OpenPLI ?

Don't ask me which stick will work and which stick will not. So far I haven't experienced any issues with the sticks I use overhere. Even an Xtrend 8Gb stick worked at the VU+ Solose. ;)
The only minor issue is, that it's hard to see whether the flash is terminated and the power can be shut off / on to boot the box. At the moment I haven't got a Solo se anymore so I cannot give you any extra assistance.
Mijn schotel is een T90 met 10 LNB's. Daarnaast voor de fun nog een draaibaar systeem met een Triax TD 78.

Dreamboxen heb ik niet meer. Verder nog een een VU+ duo2 met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno, Zero, Solo 4K, Ultimo 4K, Zero 4K, Uno 4Kse. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000. Daarnaast heb ik ook nog diverse andere modellen w.o. een Formuler F4, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en verder nog wel het e.e.a. waarmee op verzoek vanalles wordt getest. Iemand moet het tenslotte doen. ;) :)

Voor centrale opslag van media gebruik ik een Qnap 219P met tweemaal 2 Tb harddisks.

It seems to be related to the speed of detection and mounting. The bootloader only waits for a short time to see if USB media is present. Size is not really relevant altought smaller sticks seem to be detected faster.

 

I have an old 256Mb stick that I use for flashing boxes, and sofar it works fine with all of them.

I don't have a Solo SE, but as far as I know it doesn't have/use a button to start the flash, so you have to use the force.update file. It's contents is not relevant, it just has to exist.

 

If you have other USB devices connected, disconnect them before you power up the box, that might also cause your stick not to be recognised.
