Hi, I'm looking to cancel sky today. I need a good quality freesat box. I was looking to get a solo 2 or a duo 2. I'll possibly try and add iptv at some point too. Any suggestions which box to get and where to get one that isnt a clone? Cheers

a question for vu- maybe? likely factories tooled toward 4k production, solo 2 still a production model for now, not interested in clones, I only use genuine vu boxes

originals are still available from reputable dealers, what has to be remembered, 28.2e sat nearly gone, Irish cable, after last month gone, vu are higher end boxes, others are offering similar spec & 4k cheaper, dealers /importers are looking at this too, not keeping as much stock as in the heydays would be my guess

Those left with a lot of high end stock will start to panic soon as the H7 , sf8008 and such like become better known and the prices of the higher end should start to tumble.

that's just it m8 some of the newest cheaper models offer almost same spec and performance as the higher end boxes, my vu-boxes were bought a few years back, when all was going great guns ,

As you said, for one is there a VU box that offers multi boot ? If so is it at a price anywhere near the two boxes l mentioned?

I bought 2 solo 2's from ebay a couple of weeks ago for £75.00 each and a duo 2 for £140.00 all fitted with 500G hard drives and they were all in vgc and no issues. There are a few good deals now and again if you look around. I buy quite a few here and there and not had a clone yet.
