    How to flash a VU+ Duo

    Befor we start you need:

    1. An USB stick formatted to FAT32

    2. Download the Image Openvix 3.2.036 Release VU+ Duo USB (56.6 MB)

    3. Compression software such as Winrar or Winzip

    Preparation:
    1. Format a USB stick to FAT32.
    2. Download the image and extract it to your desktop.
    3. Open the folder you extracted to your desktop, in this case named openvix-3.2.036.vuduo_usb, you will see another folder named vuplus, this is your image file. Copy the entire vuplus folder directly to the USB stick

    Flashing the Receiver.

    • Fully power the receiver down via the rocker switch at the rear of the receiver.
    • Make sure no USB devices are plugged into the receiver at this point.
    • Insert the USB stick containing the image files into one of the USB ports on the receiver.
    • Power the receiver on from the rear rocker switch and await instructions.

    As your Duo starts to power up the flash progress should automatically begin with a readout of the
    progress on the receivers display, just sit tight and wait for the receiver to do it's thing.

    IMPORTANT: DO NOT POWER THE RECEIVER DOWN DURING THE FLASHING PROCESS, AS YOU CAN CAUSE SERIOUS AND PERMANT DAMAGE BY DOING SO.

    If for some reason the flash process does not start but instead you see the message “starting” it
    means that the receiver has not detected the USB stick or image files or both. If this happens start
    from the beginning or try another USB stick, Image or USB port on the receiver.

    If all goes well the flashing process should take approximately 2 to 4 minutes to complete, you
    should now see a message on the display telling you to remove the USB stick and reboot the
    receiver. Only at this point should you power the receiver on and off to reboot the box.

    Please note. The Vu+Duo unlike newer receivers from Vu+ will always initiate the flash process if a
    viable image file has been found on the USB media at bootup without the need for user interaction,
    for this reason it is not advisable to keep a image on your USB stick while inserted in the receiver.

    Depending on the age of the receiver and the image in use you may need to update the bootloader
    file prior to flashing the image of your choice, the process to flash the bootloader is exactly the
    same as flashing a image and the bootloader can be found on the openvix download site in the
    bootloaders section.
