    Shooting
    2 weeks ago, Skycable chose my city to be its guinea pig for its digital box project to combat cable piracy. i have no problem with that, the thing is

    i lost the local channels since the installation,
    there are times the video output had a lot of pixels
    the box hangs and requires a 15 minute reset
    and they won't roll back until their digital network is fixed.

    :frown:


    so, i'm putting my moolah elsewhere and shifting to DTH, "klaro wherever!!"

    What is DTH Service?

    The Direct-To-Home (DTH) service is a digital satellite service that provides television services direct to subscribers anywhere in the country. Since it makes use of wireless technology, programs are sent to the subscriber's television direct from the satellite, eliminating the need for cables and any cable infrastructure. This is particularly valuable in remote and difficult to reach areas where cable and in many cases, terrestrial television services are poor or non existent.

    DTH services also provide the finest of picture and sound quality which is considered to be second to none worldwide. Now surround sound, home theaters, live concerts and daily television programming are all delivered to your home with the same quality as any modern movie theater.

    I think this is what I need since Sky doesn't service my area here in the province --too far from the city or some such nonsense :upeyes:
