genuine vu+ solo2 or clone ? - 15-September-2013, 20:23

just purchased a used vu+ solo2
i am new to vu + equipment and seeking advice
Is there any way to tell if the second-hand vu+ solo2 is genuine? Now theyve made copy clones of them
Ive been assured it's genuine by the seller and purchased before clone were out, but I would like to confirm it myself
Ive only every purchased genuine dreamboxes in the past and i can visually spot a clone a mile away (even the remotes)
But no idea on how to identify (visually) a cloned solo2 due to not seeing either genuine and none genuine before
I take it if I flash it with original images (none patched) It would error because of ssl or is it not the same on vu+ receivers?
Thanks for your advice

I cannot help with that box but on the vu+ ultimo you can easily switch between images whether original, backups or others.I just update or change by usb with a flash memory stick.You have Meo boot as well available but I have never used it if it is the same as my box.
With your box if original as I don`t know about clones you have access to far more new and updated images to try.

To identify a clone, lookup MAC address of box in a MAC vendor database (google search: MAC Lookup). If no vendor is found for your MAC then you have a clone. I've had a few VU+ Solo clones - this was the only way I could tell, never had a problem with them running various images, performance not as good as genuine boxes though.

Could you provide more info about checking MAC on Solo2 box?
Can we rely on sticker or to run "ifconfig -a"?

Unfortunately, clones are here, around us and it is hard to recognise.

You have to open it to spot the difference (1 capacitor extra).

Check that pdf. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...VU%2BSolo2.pdf

Apart from the indicated red arrows i noticed some significant differences on the main board comparisons. Not sure if the photo is playing tricks on me with the images tho

hdmi output port looks slightly different
psu cloured wires/
serial port/
Psu does look completely unfinished on original tho.

optical output/difference i think!
barcode sticker on board looks different
foam protection above ethernet connection/nit picking i am with that.

Anybody else spot any other spot the balls!
