    Has it was discussed many other times, this is a difficult question to answer. It's a subjective position.
    I can give you my experience: after some years with BH (but trying in multiboot the new OBH since its 0.4 release), I'm now definitely on OBH because I find it much more comfortable under many aspects.
    Not only that: it is not bounded to VU+ original drivers so that if there a problem with VU+, BH has got the same issues whilst OBH hasn't (maybe is true also the viceversa but it hasn't occurred so often since OBH 4.1 was released).
    For your box, also, OBH is a lighter image than BH. Probably heavier than BH2.1.7 but surely lighter than the last BH.

    BH Y OPBH . son casi iguales . pero OPBH tiene mas opciones en menu y mas pieles y mas ligero .a mi me gusta mucho mas . OPBH . sobre todo para vu solo que tiene menos memoria .

    Wrong: they are quite different (images ARE NOT skins...) but, above all, as I wrote, it's thei kernel completely different.

    It should be the same way you do most of the VU+ receivers.
    First format your USB stick to FAT 32, using your PC.
    Next download the image you wish to load, ensuring you have the correct image, for your receiver:
    Black Hole for VU+ Zero 4k:

    Open Black Hole for VU+ Zero 4K:

    Open the file, using winzip, WinRAR or the free 7-zip.
    You should now be left with a vuplus folder, which you copy onto your FAT 32 formatted USB stick.
    Turn off your receiver, at the rear, insert the USB stick, turn on your receiver and it should start flashing the new image.

    If it doesn't try a different USB stick, the older, cheaper, ones ten to work better.
