They are not dodging the fact they are reveling in fact that they are deliberately causing continuous reboots to force purchase of their Explora. How is it possible that SDPVR subscribers can have days of no reboots then suddenly they are attacked with numerous reboots 3 reboots within 20 minutes of each other. A pause then more reboots anything up to 8 in a 24 hour cycle.
If this happened in the EU or USA they would be facing massive claims.
They could fix this but won't because they can get away with this practice in SA.
We signed a contract when we purchased the SDPVR decoders and guess who is defaulting on the contract DSTV our debit orders and money is accepted every month and we are not receiving the service we are paying for.
Disgust is a polite word for DSTV service.

Yep...pretty unusable the past few days. Takes about 6 or 7 reboots/rescans before I can start watching again.
Got an sms reminder about my annual once off payment coming up for renewal end of the month.
You can guess what I told them.
Easier to download a ton of stuff and watch off usb now...my days of battling with this **** are almost over.

You guys really ****** it up good and proper this time, didn't you?
After weeks of showing you could actually make it work if you like....it has been days of endless reboots, few of the rescans actually completing.
Takes on average over an hour to get a picture, and then a while later..another reboot.
So while I still have a few weeks of paid access, I am going to make things as miserable as possible for MC.
You don't get to mess up your customers lives and free time without any backlash.

Careful, everyone regular knows that most of the good content isn't available here from any other legal source and MC are obliged by contract to assist with prosecutions and have done so in the past.

There's nothing more that we can do, doubt more than a couple of people even read this thread still, and I'm sure MC aren't trying to torture us - just going about changes they feel they need to make which then affect us. Sad ending to a great machine

Let them come...I dare them. They can contact me, and I'll tell them how to get hold of me. Oh...and I am now on reboot number 23, about 2 hours without getting a single successful reboot. My evening is shot, my morning is screwed, and I am paying for something I am not getting.
