Manufacturing stopped many years ago - basically when the Explora 2 came out. Quite a few reports recently of Explora 1 hard drives starting to pack up though. Personally I find the 2A just as good - just avoid the Explora 3. Soon I guess even getting a 2A will become a challenge.

And do yourself a favour - buy a spare one. A few of us on the forum have done that with the better decoders from the past. It's like keeping your own rare blood supply :-D

New highly unlikely. There are  few secondhand advertised on Gumtree varying in price from R250 to R1200.

DStv Explora 1

Hi,

 

I'm looking for the DStv Explora 1 Model. @DSTV on twitter is saying they no longer manufacture it but online retailers might have it. Does anyone know where I can find it available ?
