Amazing just like previous series of errors on SDPVR decoders as soon as it stops you get an unsolicited phone call from DSTV wanting to talk about your SDPVR and Explora. Now that the prime time reboots appears to be over the inevitable unsolicited DSTV call followed once again coincidence I don't think so.

So last night at 17:55 the UEC decoder froze again . This time the freeze caused the SD PVR also to freeze.

Lost some recordings and had one recording set on the EUC completely cancelled.

After about 2 hours it settled and worked with no problems. My point is that I have downgraded to the Easyview package and all in my family has accepted it. I have noticed a few persons that motivate it, it is time for upgrade as it has a time life. I totally agree, but it won't be an upgrade. I will have less functionality what I have now. Any thing that I buy as an upgrade has more (car, computers cell etc.) An Explora is not an upgrade for me as I looses my dual recording. It might have a bigger HD etc, but it is not my choice. That is why I say MC if my UEC go finally, I will close my account. For what you offer me as a trade in and the cost and inconvenience to "upgrade" is not worth it.
Yes that is the issue. The functionality that we use ALL the time is view 3 and record 3 .
And that is what I told MC when I got the call.
An offer that replaces that functionality is what I may find compelling.

UEC: Two Exploras will give record 2.

SD PVR: Two Exploras will give me view 2.
But they can't offer me that under one subscription.

Does 2 linked Exploras not fall under one subscription??
And if not, what single subscription setup will give me 2 viewing and PVR environments?

Two Explora's do fall under one subscription.

My current setup is Explora 2A Primary and Pace HD PVR 2P as xv all under one subscription
