Just checked on my two 4 tuner decoders . miracles never cease!
Octo LNB; 2 by 2x4 MS; 2 by ES 5-2; Dedicated PSU for LNB, ES's, MS's; HD PVR 4P x 2; Explora 1; DSD 660; FSM
We've been losing channels due to the economy, two more ended last night (127 & 128), so may be due to that capacity change. I've also noticed recent improvements on another decoder type.
It feels like years since DSTV scrapped the day 8 EPG descriptions with the "too many channels, not enough space" excuse. So used to it that when I was perusing day 8 titles just now, I inadvertently pressed the info button and was at first confused, because the description appeared. After checking I was indeed on day 8, I realised THE DAY 8 DESCRIPTIONS ARE BACK!!!
I guess this is a function of all the channels we've lost since then. I hope its here to stay and not just accidental or unintended on DSTV's part.
