Go to link on a laptop that it is displayed on mibox, need to be logged into dstv on laptop

Type code in and will link mibox

Hi

Does anybody with the Xiaomi Mi box 4, have issues with DSTV now after the last update few days ago. I keep getting the error: "Video Playback Error - Retry/Close" after a few minutes of watching. Happens on Live TV as well as catchup. I have already reinstalled but the error persist.

Regards

Johan

Same. And what's worse is that I convinced my Aunt to cancel one of her DSTV subscriptions in the entertainment area, and replaced it for a mibox S with the DSTV Now app for live sports...

This happens with the official app for Android too, so not isolated to other devices only.

Hi guys.
There seems to have been an update that has made the skyworth android tv to not allow the dstv now app and showmax app. i think this started around the 18th feb.
i can't even find dstv now or showmax on google pay store if i search via the tv anymore. is anyone experiencing the same on other devices or android tv's?

Netflix, Plex and Prime Tv are working fine.

It's doesn't seem to be only an issue on Mi box, there is also an issue with DSTV Catch Up Plus and Showmax. This past week I have been in constant battle with DSTV because I cant even download properly at 3mbps. The error I am getting on my Explora download manager is - Unable to Download. Download server error. DSTV have, as usual, blamed everything else except themselves. I cant even watch on my Mi Box either.
