    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    I have escalated the issue and they have just advised that the problem has been isolated and should be resolved within the next hour.

    Mine is also on L150 with a message under Settings that an update is available. Also chose to download it and got the same message that an error occurred during the download - it is now re-booting again.

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    Can you give us some examples of the content you are referring to? Some movies and even series are filmed in an aspect ratio even wider than 16:9 and if those are shown in their original aspect ration on a 16:9 TV there will be (relatively small) black bars at the top & bottom.

    Stupid question but I assume you tried new batteries? That is exactly what happens when my batteries run low....

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    For those still keeping track of the loss of channels, on the heels of Fox, apparently on 01 Nov M-Net City and Vuzu are merging into 1 channel.

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    Possibly not related but maybe DSTV is up to something again. Last night my Explore Ultra had the red WiFi light lit up on the front panel indicating there is no internet connection although - like with you - connectivity checker proved differently and I was able to download CU+ content. The...

    I also find those adverts very irritating but - just in case you don't know - you can press the BACK button while the advert is displayed to return to the paused screen if there is something you want to see or read.

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    The DSTV Facebook support team never fails to deliver on their total misunderstanding of the service DSTV offers. Today I reported EPG problems with The Block Australia (wrong episode numbers Fri, Mon & Tue so series recording is failing) and pointed out that the same errors appear on the...

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    There was only one route for the SABC when they decided to enforce certain percentages of local content - even on their only so-called "commercial" channel. The quality of content dropped overnight followed by an exodus of viewers and the logical next step - exodus of advertisers. They must be...

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    From my experience, only time based recordings should be used for sport. MC messes up all the time. I have often had cases where a recording had problems and the Explora then replaces it with a Highlights package of the same event instead of the full version.

    The Walking Dead [SPOILERS]

    So if you were getting your TWD fix via DSTV you will have to make another plan for Season 11. Or get Disney+ winter 2022.... https://www.news24.com/channel/tv/news/disney-ends-the-fox-channel-in-africa-rips-away-the-walking-deads-final-season-20210824

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    Apologies - you have to pay an additional access fee for the 3rd decoder - I think it's currently R105.

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    You can have 3 decoders on Xtraview without any additional monthly charge but it depends on which existing decoders you have. The primary has to be an Explora. Different combos can be viewed at https://www.dstv.co.za/mydstv/help/faqs/services/xtraview/#collapse-0 but your SmartLNB will also play...

    The Walking Dead [SPOILERS]

    I'm not getting any answers from either DSTV or FOX Africa. Episode 1 airs in the US this Sunday and we always got it at the same time (early Mon morning SA time) but there is nothing on the schedules this time around.

    Dear DStv - technical faults thread

    I see I also received the update but I have not watched much recently on the Explora 1 so I have not picked up any issues. I used the status bar now (decoder was tuned to CNN) and all seemed to be working OK in the current buffer,
