Default Mobile Drifta - Displaying Service Scrambled

I have recently reinstalled the dstv drifta software onto my laptop. When switched on it shows the channels available and forever tries to connect on any channel. The signal icon on the drifta keeps on flashing but when disconnected from the laptop or when the application is closed, it holds firm. I have tried on two laptops, uninstalled software and reinstalled, reset online but still get the same results.

please help.

Morning smangam, please check if there is coverage where you stay here with our coverage map : Should you have full coverage in your area please try to do the following troubleshoot , Reset the Drifta , completely delete the App on your laptop and Re-install it again.
After this exercise, if the problem persist please can you take the Device to our nearest MultiChoice Call Centre Office for them to test the Device.
