    Hmm, it should work, then the only thing I could think of is that the VuJ chipboard does not work.
    When/if you sent me a Pm (see the contact under my avatar picture) with your address, then I'm willing to send you another board.
    Ofcourse tested on my v2 board.

    After a good night sleep I came up with this possibility which may the solution.
    Please try this before I sent you a new board.

    Later I saw one of my old drawings which confirmed this idea.

    Ah, okay it works, thus my good overnight sleep did helped. :)
    Thanks for patience and testing it with a Solo V3 receiver, now we know how it needs to be connected on a Solo V3 box with a V3 security chip and a 7 pins socket.

    Джонни Б , привет
    У меня есть соло версии 2, войдите в загрузчик вложений, загрузчик и образ с USB загружается нормально, но на любом выходе нет видео .. Я вижу что-то происходит в журнале, как я могу это исправить?

    Google translated...
    I have solo version 2, go into the attachment loader, the bootloader and the USB image boot normally, but there is no video on any output .. I see something is happening in the log, how can I fix it?

    Security board problem, these are v3.2 and v2.0 boards, you will have only to use Ferrari v3 or v2 images. You cannot use original images... to use original images you need to replace the board by the VUJ Board.

    Thank you, uploaded the image Vu solo Ferrari v2 took the image from the forum Japhar, after the problem with the firmware remained ..how to restore the receiver to buy a Board VUJ Board does not make sense, since the receiver is old and has long been discontinued, as well as Dreambox 800-800se and vlazhivat in old models is impractical for 30-35 euros per receiver. I am interested in how to restore the functionality of vu Solo

    If your security board is defective, you have only one choice... replace it.

    If you have a working box, you should replace the working Security board by the ones you have, one by one and find out which one is ok and which one is not ok... then once you know this (perhaps the ones you have are already all considered bad), then you will need to replace them.

    To reprogram your Security board, hoping this fixes your issue but you will be still stuck on v2/v3 Ferrari old images, check this below, where you have the update for v3.0, v3.0beta and v3.2. All are v2 and the v3.2 can run the v3 images (but not all).

    Theoretically you could remove the syncmos chip from the vu solo onboard chip and place it onto one of the v3 ferrari modules and should work if you flash the box with the suitable software for these X card chips, probally/maybe just a original duo image file may work with it or just the software already on it may run with it.
    In any case, the pin connections of both chips are the same way connected.

    However, of course.. I've not tested this and so it may not work, or not staying to work after a online update.

    If your VU+ Solo with the xchip works, don't touch it naturally ;o), it works.

    For the VU Solo Ferrari boards v3, the SyncMox chip as also 4 x 12 pins as the VU J Chip (48 pins). As Johnny tells you can try to replace it by the VUJ Chip, I don't know if it could work and Ferrari Clone v3 board could be suitable for the VU J Chip (probably you will have to change at least the Cristal that is required at 8 Mhz for VUJ, as the SyncMOS is around 20 or 30 Mhz if I remember well... then for PIN compatibility... Johnny is the guy).

    thank you for the offer, but I do not need 4 vuj chips))), I still have a Ferrari v3 from the receivers that were used as donors, if only 1 chip to buy, because I restored the receiver okotorom wrote the messages above that it uses a Ferrari v3 chip.and accordingly the old images, if I collect another one of the three remaining vusolo one, then maybe in the future it is worth buying a vuj chip , thank you again for the offer I will think about it
