    Hello,

    I have a problem with a Vu + Solo², I flash it normally, everything is done until the end, the countdown is done, I remove the USB key, the Vu restarts, I have the Vu + logo and then Vu + Solo² on the decoder and nothing happens, it looks like it's blocked.
    I put an original image, nothing, then an image for clone, it starts, the roulette wheel spins and it hangs on it

    Here is exactly what is happening
    Sorry for my English.
    Thank you for your help.

    First of all, be sure if you're dealing with a original receiver, or a clone.
    When you still have some doubts, then show a picture of the board, the parts side.

    But to see what's happening you can better use the rs232 serial port and use a tool as putty in serial mode to see what it does.
    See this picture for the serial connection etc.
    Use the option 1, Data output wiring, the other is for accessing the security chip, but that's only for clone receivers.

    For just reading you can also use a DB9 rs232 serial port to usb cable instead of a rs232 null modem cable.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your reply.
    My Vu + Solo² is a clone, I managed to update it after trying several images.
    Thank you.
