It's possibly related to the SABC reaching agreement with MC to broadcast the cricket. One way of keeping the lower package viewers from switching over. It will be interesting to see what they show live on there compared to what the SABC ends up showing live.

Re: The Lounge

 Oh, I agree. Even the 64 GB stick is inadequate.  Really a poor replacement for an MC PVR that we are all used to ---- that I can attest to from personal experience.

Re: The Lounge

Those memory sticks are hardly ideal, and low capacity, quite awkward. Certainly makes at least the MC Access package more attractive than it would be.

They should allow for USB external HDDs.

Re: The Lounge

Apparently, the openviewhd.co.za domain is involved in an ownership fight.  That led to the new site.

Note, be careful which decoder you get not all the decoders around for OpenView are able to use a memory stick for the PVR functionality.

* Only compatible with latest decoder models (NA900 and DSD4165). Ask in store.

Re: The Lounge

Finally found an official website for OpenView HD, includes a contact email address & tel. no.

https://openviewforever.co.za/

 

Strange address, looks like the Ubuntu PC Operating System (OS) people or associates are using the expected more native "openviewhd.co.za" address which is odd as they wouldn't be standing in anyone's way.

And looks like there's something on Twitter as well, but I wouldn't know (or care) about that.

 

And some related news of concern:

Golf. That's a game I've always wanted to have a go at. Wouldn't, I don't think, be any good at it but have always wanted to give it a shot. Just for the fun of it. Unfortunately never ever got around to it due to playing either football or cricket over the weekends. Now that I have the time I don't have the money. Fees are very expensive and then there's the cost of the numerous lost balls to take into account as well. 

Good luck with the golf Luke7777.

Re: The Lounge

Congratulations to you and the wife as well GeoffD. Still a few years away from my number but you doing well. Or rather, your wife is doing well. But may there still be many more happy years together for you and her. God bless you both. CONGRATULATIONS. 

Oh, almost forgot. I gave you a Kudu for this wonderful achievement of yours. Decided to also give Luke777 a Kudu, which I forgot to do before, for his wedding anniversary as well. No need to thank me as it was a pleasure. (Sarcastic laughter).
