Not that I know of. All you can do is set an alarm clock and press then press the on button heh heh

Unfortunately we just have to accept that MC is clueless about getting this sorted or they are not interested in doing so. Nothing has changed in at least 3 to 4 years despite endless reporting. You will be asked about your setup and equipment and then after a few days whether you are still experiencing the problem. And that is it. Yet they want to offer a streaming-only option to compete with you-know-who...l  
Hi @Optimist , Suits is now available, please check and let us know if you still don't have it~
Yip. It's seems like it will be perfect for Showmax let's hope    @Grace_DStv1 thanks.

No, all you can do is set a Reminder which will autotune. Would need to be done manually for every day, for only up to 7 mornings at a time. You would still need a TV that can be separately programmed to switch on at the right time - I think most modern TV's can do it.   The idea for recurring-Reminders was passed on before but I wouldn't hold my breath for it, nor for a decoder that controls the TV. Some Mods have shown keen interest in our ideas in the past but MC Corporate like too many other large businesses have never been interested in developing more than standard functionality except when it suits their agenda.

Missing the 101 premiere of the new season of Suits from Thurs., all previous seasons were certainly on CU. --------------------- What's ever happened to the online lists of CU etc. we used to have? Marietjie promised it would be replaced with something that works properly many, many, many months ago.  
Is there a way of setting up On/Off Timer (especially On) on the Explora? We have Xtraview and instead of alarms, I'd prefer weekdays to work up to Business Briefing on BBC.
Experiencing extreme buffering and video quality of 360p on my 100Mbps connection again. DSTV servers seem to not be able to cope with weekend demand. @%&^$##!
@krugie - Let's keep this one as a maybe! 
Seems like it might be quite good - maybe Showmax will get it.  
Hi @JeanP - we've checked with the relevant teams on this one, for now it doesn't seem we'll be showing it on our platforms. Should anything change, we'll keep you posted. 
This is because Showmax content - unlike CatchUp - isn't (currently) downloaded onto your Explora hard drive - it is streamed live from the server. So if you press stop and you start again it has to ... See more...

I think to be responsible it's best to add this practicality post. What can MC actually do about this? Well, even though the old forum would have worked as a central social media platform due to Tapatalk, they're possibly now locked into a contract with Lithium. Software improvements were needed, but then why no serious attention to what we've pointed out is so lacking here? It's no secret that there was an already approved budget for the help project that later "dissolved"... Perhaps it's the since worsened economy, but aren't customer needs priority for a customer services based company?? A lack of attentive or capable enough Mods isn't new either so maybe, as some of us touched on before, it's more about the structure here? The new categories improved it quite a bit but it's still difficult to move around, and sloooow (due to being hosted internationally and other factors). There's also too much space on threads here, and too little general data-info such as the post number and other things that are normal in the bulletin board world. One idea a couple of us have tossed around re the tech side of things, beyond any direct involvement by MC (there is a bit of that again but not enough quality / quantity) - I don't say this is the answer or will even work at all, but maybe allow the top helpers to try get a sponsorship - just a simple mention in their signatures that they shop for tech equipment at the X shop, and perhaps the odd included-in-a-post suggestion without going overboard. The thing is public tech help in this industry is complex so rare in this population, and needs multiple people with different periods of availability and areas of expertise and experience, and needs to be based where people will find it - on MC's turf. And obviously those already paying for a service are not interested in being charged more so funding can't be sourced there, especially not from those doing DIY which largely exists due to people wanting less and less expense involved as possible. As for feedback - it needs to be pushed back up several notches, much of it is clearly only lip service and the Mods likely have little more to offer so it's not necessarily their fault. People come to the forum for real answers. Here's hoping for some sort of brighter future, we all like this company's products to some extent and it would be nice to see it look mostly impressive again in a fair amount of time, as it was years ago. Thanks for hearing us.

Firstly, it can be done by phone and the proof of sale etc. sent in electronically. Secondly, it can't be added as a third point of viewing - only modern decoders can ever be used in a 3-decoder XtraView (XV) arrangement so the older HD PVR's cannot be included in that.
