Hi ivanj,

Kindly check this link https://selfservice.dstv.com/devices...ices/walka-43/ it has the Walka 4.3 picture. Alternatively, go to www.dstv.com, click on Support and after that Decoders and Devices.

Regards
Kagiso

Today heard a hissing noise from my laptop bag, battery finally gave in



The cell on the left, about 4mm thick, and the right hand one is massive, going to hunt around for another “compatible” battery, not willing to downsize,

More concerned about the potential fire risk this battery posed

Been a long time Ivan... :-)

In case you or others haven't seen it, this was posted by MC a while back;


About DStv Mobile - Driftas and Walkas

Apologies if there is some confusion here. Some info on DStv.com is outdated and in the process of being updated.

Below is info on our DStv mobile service - this is available on DStv.com too. Essentially, while the service is still operating, we're consolidating the devices
under Walka's only.

There are some technical glitches on some transmitters (has been since last week) that the teams are working on. This will be what causes the authentication issues.
Please contact our call centre (or you can send a PM to MC Grace) with your details so they can pass it on to the technical team.

All our development efforts are going into our DStv Now service - and that is certainly where the world is also moving to. So we encourage our customers to download and
use DStv Now to stream most of the DStv channels live.

Everything you need to know about DStv Drifta channels, DStv Drifta software and DStv Walka channels.

DStv Drifta channels
DStv Drifta channels available to existing DStv Mobile customers cover a variety of DStv entertainment and sport channels. However, while existing DStv Mobile customers
can use the DStv Drifta to watch DStv on their mobile phones, DStv no longer supports the DStv Drifta and the DStv Mobile service, which means that the service
is not available to new customers and there will be no new DStv Drifta software downloads for existing customers.

DStv Premium, Compact Plus, Compact, Family, Access and EasyView customers who want to watch live DStv channels or download series and movies on their
mobile phones can download the DStv Now app, which offers over 60 TV channels to stream on your mobile device, including M-Net, kykNET, Mzansi Magic and
various SuperSport channels.

DStv Drifta software download
Because the DStv Drifta is no longer supported, there will be no new DStv Drifta software downloads available

DStv Walka
As with the DStv Drifta, the DStv Walka is no longer supported and therefore no longer for sale from DStv. Although DStv Walka channels are still available to existing
DStv Mobile customers, new DStv customers are encouraged to download the DStv Now app, which offers more DStv channels and is compatible with most Android
and iOS devices

howsit

i saw that, but until data is zero rated for dstv now, the walka still has a place, sadly they dont replay with another 7, but with the mini one, which is utter BS,

i asked the question now on another thread, that if you buy a bmw, and it breaks, they dont replace it with the hotwheels version of your original car....

but the battery seem fairly straight forward, seems to be the same one they use in cheap tablets, 3.7v 5300mAh battery
