Angry Drifta - Is this really the best?

Hi DSTV,

Is this really the best you can do? This REALLY is not worth the money. I can't even read the scores?

Wow, I was watching the cricket as well now on a drifta, mine was ALOT clearer than what you had (compared against the largest screen).

It's disgusting...in which area are you?

I can't seem to find anything regarding firmware updates anywhere. I'm running the latest software as per the website and this is the best quality I can get.

I find the clarity of the image often changes, I am wondering if the quality switches due to current bandwidth, in that it gets blurry if bandwidth availability is low and gets better as the bandwidth is better, so as to prevent picture breakup.... just a thought -- (I noticed this trend on streaming not drifta/walka though)

Yes, Saturday the quality wasn't the greatest, then last night, it was awesome so it does change.

By the way

Spent R1250 on a Walka 7 hoping to get a better picture but the
picture quality is only marginally better, but i still can't read the scores be it rugby soccer cricket or whatever

Don't suggest spectacles I can read the finest of print no matter
what medium

So DSTV owe us a higher resolution picture comparable to that on the
live streaming on Supersport where the customer must foot the bill for the data used to view the picture

Suggest that they double the resolution and use two channels to broadcast at their cost

to stress my point compare the live streaming quality on the left to the Drifta picture on the right, and woe and behold the drifta signal is 100% -

The live stream this morning was impeccable. Almost looked like HD. It's been a while since I've seen it that good.
