Explora 3 on sale

Re: Explora 3 on sale

I have it on good authority that the 3A does have RCA ports. See the other thread where I will post pictures soon plus some other detail.

Perhaps posting some decent pics of the 3A's back and front will help with Geoff's query, though all decoders until now have the RCA-plug AV outputs (composite connections). No doubt Geoff just wants to make sure, without that any needed RF creation becomes a real pain and expense.

My question regarding RCA output?

Does this decoder provide for AV connectivity?

Re: Explora 3 on sale

It will not, more retail stores still sit with surplus stock. Perhaps in the coming years but not this year or the next:-)

Thank you.

 

Last from me - will the 2A be discontinued from new retail availability anytime soon?

That is more referring to the model 3A (Explora). Very much aware of the other decoders from the previous years.

Not true - please check with management and come back with further info.

ALL decoders before the 4 and 5 series single view HD decoders allowed for copy once of channel related SD outputs. This includes both the model 1 and 2A Exploras allowing that.

Re: Explora 3 on sale

The diplexer serves a different purpose now, as there is no longer any RF demodulator to contend with.

What is still missing is a statement about AV outputs. Does this decoder support RCA connectivity?

Command relay via the unicable ports is interesting.

Trying to work out why this is even there anymore? 

To pacify us old decoder users?

Recording on an external device is now impossible.

The end of another era.

No, it doesn't have a built in smart card it has a mini smart card similar to a sim card.
 

Yes, the decoder has a built in diplexer which supports unicable.
 

Yes, the decoder still supports all current features with internet connectivity such as catch up plus and showmax

Our decoders are encrypted to protect against people copying our content to other devices.

So no we don't support copy to other devices.
 

We have a built in hard drive for recording of up to 110 hours if you wanna record to view later.

The decoder has been tested to work with all our Smart Lnbs and DStv switches.
Hope this helps, especially with other people that will need this information more.
