Re: Explora 3a: Some more detail.

Here are two pics.

The PSUs for the Explora and Explora 2A are suitable for use with the 3A but the 3A PSU can't be used with the older decoders. Only suitable for use with the 3A.

[Edit, removed ref to UBs as there is plenty of confusion about this aspect].

An external diplexer is required IF HB connection is required in older installations.

Normal RCA connections are catered for which means it is not a 5 series decoder with PVR facilities.

HD capability is documented as 720p and 1080i.

The maximum current available at 18V DC, on the unicable port is 500 mA. This decoder therefore cannot provide reliable power to drive the older LMXs as well as possibly, the 24-1Z switch on its own.

Re: Explora 3a

@GeoffD doubt that. It's a cheaper version of 2a, probably the reason why they aren't discontinuing the 2a yet

Ja the no FP display was not well received previously.

Nothing to shout home about, nothing new for the customer, all inward focussed changes for MCs benefit.

Unless of course there are other things added we have not been told about ....

Such as built in wi-fi capability, changes to the DVB-S2 capability, etc.

Re: Explora 3a

Interesting  still don't see very different besides installation and connection method. No fan makes me very worried 😯 and no front display

Re: Explora 3a

Yes info will be handy. Preferably before it lands in store, and the most important part the price  Spec sheet and what makes it beter than current model 

 

As far as pic goes nothing noteworthy. If that pic Is accurate it doesn't have a much needed display!  So how can you tell the time or channel we all know how popular the last non display decoder was 😵😧

Re: Explora 3a

On the old forum, we speculated about a new decoder for xmas last year but that never happened. Then on this forum, MC  hinted about specials for black Friday. We sort of all decided that would be the launch of a new decoder. 

What would be very welcome would be an announcement plus some detail about what makes this model so special. A spec sheet would be great MC.
