    I think Vue+Duo2 can give nothing substantial to you compared to Solo2. May be somebody explain me what for it has 2GB memory, if I cannot use 1GB totally? And do you think picons look better on small Duo2 screen than on my 55" TV? Why many ppl wait for Duo2 when they can have Solo2 now at around 2 times lower price?

    You know
    all the arguments that you write,
    Some have written for all other receivers , in the last ten years.
    But the facts are quite different.
    It all depends on the needs and the money available for it.

    I love everything that you forgot to write abt
    and mostly better and stronger processor .

    :D

    Let's look at comparisons old duo and solo2 (old post)

    A similar theory as yours now
    But now they have problems with lack of memory.
    This does not mean that the OLD duo is bad receiver
    but it has limitations.

    I agree that Solo2 is a big step forward, PrismCube is a step aside and Duo2 is a jump sur place:grin:

    Not to worry.
    Let's leave it to future users

    These receivers are getting better for the same or less money.
    I do not see anything wrong.
    On the contrary a very good trend.

    First of all the cpu is more powerful and support opengl2 (it could run a port of xbmc).
    The lcd of the solo2 is really too small. The problem are not che picons in lcd but to have to read well time and titles. The duo2 have not only the lcd but have a vfd lcd like the ultimo too that is really comfortable in my opinion.
    The duo2 allow also to install 3.5 hdd and this is good for me because i hate 2.5 drives.
    But the most important feature for me are the p&p tuners and the possibility to install a dtt tuner too because i hate all the usb tuners that will never work like an internal and have issues with cable.

    I like SSD and all of them are 2.5" :D As a rule 3.5" HDDs produce too much heat in the box.
    My TV set has built-in DVB-C and DVB-T2, thus it is not important feature of Duo2 for me.

    SSD are by no doubt the future , but they are still expensive and have limited volume capacity . My Tv set has also DVB-C/T2 tuners , but then we do compromise and must use the TV set's GUI for those :no:. The day my TV set is running Black Hole ( I doubt this day will arrive sometime ) , I will definitely start using those built-in tuners .

    Anyone know if Duo2 P&P terrestrial tuner will be DVB-T2 compliant? Or just DVB-T?

    The only Linux (Kernel 3.2+) supported T2 - stick is PCTV Systems nanoStick T2 290e (ID 2013:024f USB2.0 )
    "Then of course there's the question of whether your machine is fast enough to decode HD streams. A decent dual-core CPU will do it":)
