To all ViX users, as you all well know we've been waiting for VU+ communication and support, this is very slowly starting to improve so we've decided to give our members a special Christmas present and release a Solo2 beta image.There are still currently a few known driver issues listed below and we hope that VU+ carry on their communication and solve these issues asap.
ViX users are welcome to use the images, but please be advised that if you run into any issues we will do ourutmost to fix, but if driver related we will have to await VU's response and driver fixes.
Known bugs (all driver related):
1- Playback during recording can be problematic
2- Streaming can sometimes have issues (not all streams will play)
3- Blindscan doesn't work
4- 'Transcoding for mobile devices' is in it's beta-state and can have issues (Not tested by ViX Team to Android devices)
5- Internal loopthrough works only from tuner B to tuner A (so the feed must be connected to tuner B)

7- Playback of recorded encrypted event whilst still recording not functioning.
