I have the base game and both expansions for Eldritch Horror.
I love this game but have a hard time getting folks to sit down for 3-5 hours.
I would like to try it solo... but cannot seem to find if I should play with one investigator or more.
Also any other advice would be great.

It's best with 4 investigators, because otherwise you are lacking flexibility and mobility.

I often play this game with just 2 players. Controlling 2 characters is absolutely possible and enjoyable. It's still best with 4 investigators and 4 players for reasons like immersion, identification and roleplay.
I don't know if controlling 4 investigators is still fun, I guess it comes down to personal preference.

I like playing with 3 investigators, but I round down to 2-player the needs for solving mythos and what not to make it more fair.

(I like winning sometimes.)

I play with 4. The hardest thing to remember are things like "once per turn" effects. I use some spare black cubes to place on my character cards after using the effects and clear them after mythos.

I have done 2 and 4. I've won with 2, but have yet to win with 4.

I've only played solo using 2 investigators (but that's because I'm massively disorganised and get ahead of myself all the time, so any more would be utter chaos).
