    Hi, I am currently using vu+ duo2 box with virgin and sky lines running on it. I was wondering what plugins is everyone using? And how can I make the most of my box. Thanks in advance

    let the box just do what it is made for
    once you start adding features. the less fun you will have


    keep it clean and simple

    Have been keeping it simple from the start and was getting bored, but I do understand what you’re suggesting

    Dsayers ABMCustomMixImporter for combining working VM channels into Sky bouquet and Grog's Movie Organisor if you record a lot of TV series.

    I use a VU+Duo2 for sat and run Iptv using suls plugin and the only other thing I use is e2i player for movies and tv shows and it works very well. I can't think of anything else you would need tbh.

    I think it's all been covered, if you want a rubbish weather app like something from Ceefax days, fill your boots. Otherwise it's just E2i player which is absolutely fantastic for movies & boxsets etc and then the few EPG apps and not really much else. Siilver got it right I think, bloating the box doesn't seem the best idea especially if it all ends up being bloated for the sake of it.

    Movie Browser is another good plugin if you have a movie collection on your hdd or nas.
    It scrapes movie info and art from the internet like Kodi.
    I don't agree with the statement that e2iplayer and the epg plugins are the only decent ones. Nearly every app on the box runs via a plugin.
    It's just a matter of working out what you need and what you don't.
    OpenATV ships with loads of plugins pre-installed that I personally think are unnecessary but someone must want them.
