About Vu Solo
The Vu Solo is a digital satellite receiver with an understated design and budget price tag. It can be coupled with an external hard drive so that it can be used as a PVR. The set top box works in a similar way to a freeview box and offers access to multiple satellite and digital channels. The only major drawback is that it does not offer the capability to install an internal hard drive, so buyers will need to invest in an external drive, if they wish to use the device to record TV content.
Wizard setup is offered, so that buyers can get up and running without too much fuss. A 333MHz processor coupled with 348MB of RAM work to ensure that the device runs smoothly enough and operates at a reasonable speed, but arguably the biggest draw of the Vu Solo is its price tag. The Solo is a budget device, but it has a decent look and decent features and settings that ensure that it is considered good value for money by reviewers and buyers.
Another feature of the Vu Solo that some buyers will find beneficial is the fact that additional plug-ins can be installed, including a media viewer. Once installed, this makes it possible for viewers to watch footage from a USB device or other external storage device. If you have a lot of content on your computer or laptop, you will struggle to play it directly because of the lack of a throughput, but you can play content from a flash drive or similar storage device.
