  • HowTo keep your Vu+ cool and avoid overheating.

    At first, follow your user manual, where to place your box.

    For those, who doesn't want to use for any reason third party plugin Fancontrol2, I suggest to set
    Menu > Plugins > Manual Fan control to "ON" in standby. (I personally prefer Deep Standby which keeps box cooler, or total power off when no recordings are programmed.)

    Menu > Plugins > Manual Fan control

    Fancontrol2 is a better solution, because you can control speed of your box fan.

    For installation:
    Press Green > Yellow > Addons Download Manager > BH Addons Plugin > Fancontrol2

    After installation and reboot is possible to configure Fancontrol2
    (blue > press long or Menu > Plugins > FanControl2)

    4Pin configuration is the best I found for my Solo2.

    Try the best for your use and please, report your experiences and tests on other boxes (Fan type).

    You can also check your fan by LAN/WLAN typing in browser http://IP of your box/fancontrol
