    Default What is needed? Vu+Duo

    Am buying vu+Duo this week, just need clearer understanding on what type is best to get the software that will get the whole channels...

    Rather not a card share.

    So this will helpme onthe right path toward correct searching. I am a capable tech person but want to hear different advises before going ahead with downloading softwares

    Thanks

    You won't get any more channels than Freeview unless you cardshare. If you are getting the box for freeview then great, but for anything more then you are very late to the party.....the party is over pal!

    Card share is virtually over. Sd channels only and even they wont last. You can't get free sky channels on a vu box now mate. It's all done. Google it.

    Have a look on Google.

    SD still exists but pretty much for SD only, HD is RIP.

    That cleared that up then.

    Friendly reminder
    Even though it's practically over, card sharing discussions are strictly prohibited on the forum and could lead to a permanent ban.

    I would say that they are definitely no longer worth getting.

    A receiver that is a 1/4 of the price is also good for freeview.

    Clone makes more sense as it will come in around £60.
