Thread: Dstv for 4 tv's independently

  1. #1

    Default Dstv for 4 tv's independently

    I'm thinking about moving over to DSTV compact from M-net stand alone. Problem is that we have 4 tv's at home and everyone watching one channel would be a massacre!(literally!)

    So my question is, how do I get each tv with an independent dstv with the lowest of cost? (a dual view for each tv would be too expensive)

    Sorry i think your only option is to get two duel views or you could wait for ODM by the end of this year and see what they have to offer

    doubt it they will work since the card and decoder are now linked (married) so anything in between won't work.

    DSTV has Xtraview, using the 1110 decoders, multiple decoders can be linked up. I'm not sure if it can handle more than two decoders.

    Using DSTV the most channels you can watch live is 3 by using a SDPVR & HDPVR combo (you can record another 3), SDPVRs are hard to find though

    AFAIK, the marriage is only valid for DSTV decoders, but may be annulled for any other makers.

    SD + SD xtra view not possible.


    As for ODM... They will probably have very limited content available at first. Will take a few years for them to establish themselves. My advice is, don't wait for ODM. You will wait long for them to become real competition.

    What about 2x(2x1110->Power Splitter)->Power Slitter->4 way Splitter? Crazy... But you never know, it just might work.
