a vu + solo is a hd box so its an enigma 2 box . there is a very small difference in how you put in a c line in an enigma 1 box to an enigma 2 box . very simply put your box needs a bit of software called a cam , cccam 2.1.3 will work well . you install that in your box unless of course its already in there . after you install that software your box then should have a file in it called cccam.cfg , very simply you find this file and then open this file and pop in the c line , save your work and exit , you may have to reboot the box after . the little difference is that on an enigma 1 box and an enigma 2 box the location of the file differs slightly . now if you study page 1 of my tutorial you should be able to use dcc (dream control center) to connect your laptop to your box , now dcc may not work on some new routers so you can use a similar program called filezilla . my tutorial explains that the cccam.cfg file is located in var/etc , thats because i was talking about an enigma 1 box , but for a vu+ solo the file is located in etc . now dont worry if any of this is confusing as i can help you out and explain things to you more . your box will of course need to be connected to your broadband router for any of this to work . i take it you dont have a c line ? , it seems you dont know where to get one either , you will need to source a c line . these are not free but can be got reasonably priced these days .
