Hi there,

I've finally dug my Vu+ Duo out of hibernation (2 years with no broadcast TV, just DVDs from Fatso), I've tuned in a compliment of channels one of which is "Weather".

I assume that this channel is some sort of graphics based channel that official FreeView satellite boxes can display ?  I get music but only a black screen on my Duo.

Any chance there is a plugin or config setting to tweak to get it showing the weather ?

Actually i think it's a sky channel which pops up now & again on D1. Always been just music.

It is the background music that Sky has on when a user is looking at their weather interactive channel. For some reason sky has it unencrypted.
