In Topic: VU+ driver issues

1 November 2019 - 14:30


Vu Duo 4k Driverer issiues, what are they? and how do the show ?


The VU+ Duo 4K driver has some issues where audio becomes "choppy", which can be fixed temporarely by a quick zap, but needs a restart to make it go away for a while.


There has been a driver update recently which mentions audio fixes, I haven't had the time yet to fully assess if this update has fixed the issue.



The Audio problem is it when viewing from a  Sat. channel or is when playing from other sources or regardless what's playing?

Are there problems with AC3 DD5.1? My brother said that there have been problem with DD5.1 and I found in some forum that the workaround was to use a spdif cable to the receiver.

But that was some years ago so that problem would have been solved now.



Another question regarding VU+ Ultimo 4K vs Dou 4K.


Is there some functions/capabilities/features that Ultimo 4K has but not Duo 4K and vice versa?

I know that Ultimo has

3 slots for tuner modules   -  Uno only 2

2 smartcard readers   -  Uno only 1

3.5" and 2.5" hdd   -  Uno only 2.5"

3GB RAM   -  Uno only 2GB RAM


But iDuo 4K has a much faster CPU 4x2100MHz while Ultimo only has 4x1500MHz.


But are there any other differencies? Does Ultimo 4K have "features" that Uno 4K don't have ?

Ok, I was a little bit worried that I would have to use a Conax module. I read in a forum that there was a guy that had some problems. I think that the problem was something like that the Conax module couldn't decode more than one at the same time, the others have to be decoded later (offline) and very short after because the code will change. I have never had that problem with my dreambox but I have heard about similar problema from other poeple.


The driver problem with VU+ Dou4K. What are they? What is it that isn't working correctly?

Do I need to buy a Conax CI-module or will my "Canal Digital Nordic" card work in the  Smartcard reader together with oscam softcam as it does in my Dreambox?

Probably not, it's more if there would be a problem with one Module. In that case is it better to buy another FBC tuner or a Dual DVB-S2 tuner?

I don't know if I understood correct. All this with FBC is new for me


I'm only interested in S tuners.



"For S, it is a bit different. An FBC S module has 2 root tuners, connected to each of the inputs, and 6 leaf tuners, which are dynamically looped through on one of the root tuner inputs."


Does that mean that 1 FBC module, that have 2 inputs  = 16 (2x 8) tuners ?  and with 2 FBC modules = 32 tuners



"If you have a Unicable setup, all 8 tuners can tune to a different transponder over a single cable (providing your setup can provide 8 SCRs)."


What did you mean with "providing your setup can provide 8 SCRs"



I will buy a new "One cable" LNB with with as many "User bands" as possible.  I know that there are LNB's with 3 outputs,  2x "old type" LNB output + 1 "Sat CR" output with 24 "Userbands"/Channels. 



Using one cable from the Sat CR  output on the LNB and at the other end of the cable (in my living room) I use a 4-way splitter and connect to each of the four inputs on the FBC modules. Two per module.


Is that enough except for the configuration in the box? or do I need some more hardware?



The Sat. Box will probably bee Vu+ Ultimo4K or Duo4K, with 2x FBC DVB-S2x modules.

And if Ultimo4K, possibly a third module, Dual DVB-S2 tuner or a Dual DVB-C/T2 tuner. or dual DVB-T2 tuner (MTSIF).
