NDTV 24X7 and SRTV now on air

Indian English News Channel NDTV 24X7 and Malaysian Tamil movie channel SRTV have been added onto the Dialog TV lineup as of last night. SRTV was introduced a few weeks back and then taken off air to make room for "The Buddhist" and has now been reintroduced. This means that Dialog TV have to launch only God TV and the Star Channels from the initially planned channels. We are also receiving unconfirmed news that Star Cricket would be coming onto Dialog TV soon. It is highly likely that God TV may be introduced before the Star Package but who knows it may happen the other way too. We believe that in a few days time Dialog would complete adding all the channels to their lineup provided that there are no more technical issues.

The quality of the picture in these channels seem to be much better than what they were initially however it should be said that the sound levels across the entire channel base differs from channel to channel. The volume on some channels are loud and some are just too soft leaving the viewer to change the level from channel to channel. We hope that the engineering team of Dialog TV would take steps to get all channels to have the same volume.

Please update us on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

TERRY i hope u wont scold me as i am blogging here again.lol

I just came to this blog just to check what going on.

i switched on the TV a couple of mins ago and found that they have given 2 more new channels. i'm quite happy. Furthermore i checked for the IRD upgrade. and it worked. It said it will take 540 secs( not sure exactly) for the download. But i didnt make da upgrade as i was scared of wat wud happen after that.

i think they have activated it. not sure wheather its officiaill y or not.

Saw this new thread after posting to old thread. So I'm posting again here :-)

from yesterday afternoon HBO family is scrambled to 900. So I hope testing is over :-(

@Riky, terry, kido-cmb,
Thanks for the info. Do you know any reason why they don't give ESPN, POGO to all 900 package? Is it due to cost factors ? I'm wondering how CBNSat given those to 850... hmmm... seems like DTV end up with 4 packages. 500, 900 old, 900 new and 1400. If old 900 upgraded to 1400 and then downgraded to 900 again, will they get ESPN, POGO again ?

@amd,
According to my knowledge, yes. We have to scan again to get new channels (but don't need to reset to factory defaults).

There are some people born to spoil anything, one such person is RAHDUS. He doesn’t stop there, he wants to make every one anger with one another.

RAHDUS and LBN_ROCKS are one and the same person, check both ones profile (http://www.blogger.com/profile/09912944869749995220 )

I hope DTV bloggers will understand, no LBN blogger is against the DTV bloggers, its some dirty minded people who spoils every one to comment bad about each other.

@ Gamini

Its okay as far as you are concentrationg on your studies and after A/L you can have loads of DTV.

soorapappa said...

@terry,
Thanks for the answer bro. Sad story for me anyway :-(
One more q. According to your list 900 should get neo and neo+ both. I've got both until yesterday and now, Neo+ is scrambled. Are you sure about Neo+ ?

D.L.R. said...

is HBO family working now? yesterday night suddnely (in a middle of a movie) channel went to some sort of a test card, but not the standard testcard. can anyone check the status now.

As DTV is charging us for these days, can they suddnely remove any channel? (For new channels it's ok but some channels like CNN also they are removing for modification without giving any prior notice)

We all agree that most of us have spare time to watch tv only on Sunday but these DTV people do all the modification on sundays. Don't they know, they are doing bussiness in entertainment arena

AMD said...

@ D.L.R.

It was working in the morning.

@ nimal and all cricket fans.

ESPN is not showing the IND vs END series. Its on STAR CRICKET.

Priyantha De Silva said...

@ d.l.r.,
Now, Every channel on TP 3 are working properly except SAB. All of them were Black screen 10 minites ago except buddhist.

TERRY said...

@ Soorapappa

Both Neo channels should be there,As i said before i have a offcial brochure of DTV and its clearly stated that both channels are included.

@DLR
These channels are still on the test mode and not even officialy launched

Dude said...

@AMD

The ODI series will be shown on ESPN/Star Sports and Star Cricket. On Star Cricket it will be the Hindi feed and on the other English feed.

Gamini said...

guys

i took da risk and did the upgrade. it worked. not only dat the name cbnsat is replaced by dialog tv and also there logo had also changed to that dialog tv babbyish logo. The date now is july 4th 2007. and rf out problem is also solved.
so ALLS WELL THAT ENDS WELL....

AMD said...

@ Gamini -when did u do the update?

I tried this morning, but it said, "download stream not found "

Dude said...

@Gamini

Is this the first time you are upgrading or did you do it earlier when it was available.

What are the new features that you got compared to the earlier one?

Priyantha De Silva said...

If anyone interested about,

@NATHAN
Before making comments please be aware what’s going on around you. Just go to this link and read the second message, http://lbncable.blogspot.com/2007/06/discovery-animal-planet-travel-living.html

Here rahdus posted a message posing like a DTV blogger and a made comments to make LBN bloggers think dtv bloggers are rude.

I don’t know where rahdus belong but I am sure rahdus or lbn_rocks doesn’t belong to LBN

Priyantha De Silva said...

YES, Thanks Gamini,


@ Everone,

I've done the new Upgrade just now.The Color problem has been solved.so the logo is "Dialog TV"
Now "IRD Upgrade" turned to gray.

cable said...

@priyantha

are there any new addtions or improvements you can see?

nimal said...

@amd

I only said that the one day series would shown on ESPN. Please read my comment. ( not the entire tour)
That's what they advertised testerday

Gamini said...

@ amd

the upgrade was available just when i first started blogging today. after 10 am. I think its still available. After u have done the upgrade the ird upgrade button will turn grey.

@ dude

no. this is the second time. I did it a onth earlier. There arent much features. It has all the features of the new Software.

7 day epg and stuff like that. RF out problem is no longer there. the names have changed to dialog tv from cbnsat.

@ Priyantha

it turned grey as we did the upgrade. If we hadnt done the upgrade it wont change.

so guys i think its quite safe to do da IRD upgrade.

Priyantha De Silva said...

@ Cable,

I've checked everything on new software but unable to find anything new than said before comparing to last month Upgrade.The password is also same as 1234 . That was last month's one. Not as old one of 9949.

But, It's very important to notice, The RF signal now can get in color. That was the problem of many bloggers before.

AMD said...

@ Gamini -

How about the Main screen ? The screen u get when switch on the decoder from the back switch ?
Has that also changed?

D.L.R. said...

Can we expect any jokes or comedy channels in future. At the moment only pogo has some programs but it’s not enough.

(I really enjoy jokes during rupavahini’s Ranil’s news, but it also seems to be going to end near future when good leader comes to UNP)

AMD said...

@ Soorapappa

Refer the brochure page i uploaded in the previous thread.
I think thats the one terry is referring to.

russel said...

riky, tery, laksirif, technoguy

when will they unlink the star package and god tv? will it take a lot of time?

KIDO-CMB said...

Good news ppl;
STAR cricket is coming to DTV within other 2weeks mean time DTV going to give the Sing/Malaysian feed STAR pkc channels. It’s confirmed.

AMD said...

Good news KIDO-CMB.

Can u confirm when the STAR channels will be activated ?

Priyantha De Silva said...

@ AMD,
The main screen I've checked after you have mention earlier.

It has a cartoon face with a boy and "Dialog Satellite TV" logo on the screen

***** Has anyone who didn't Upgrade to DTV from CBN, got Dialog Logo after the new software download today ?

cable said...

@kido-cmb

are u sure that even star world is going to be the sing/Maly feed? then this will be a first in SL. because Both LBN & Comet gives the indian feed of star world.

Comet & LBN gives the Sing feed of star movies

Priyantha De Silva said...

the new IRD Upgrade Date ,it Says Jul 04 2007 ( see IRD status )Version, 5.03

Amalka said...

any one plzz tell me IRD Upgrade still working or not

riky said...

The IRD upgrade is OK now and anyone can download.

Its tested and complete.

cableguy said...

Guys
I am sure the info I am looking for may have been posted before, but can anyone briefly explain the s/w upgrade procedure?
I have an old CBNSat decorder with the 850 package.
Also please let me know the Do's and Dont's when upgrading.

I did try it two days ago, but at the end of it all, it didnt get upgraded. I must have done something wrong. Please share with me the proper procedure.

KIDO-CMB said...

DTV becomes the best value TV channel holder with 7super sports channels.
@ AMD & Cable:
Yes. Its 100% confirmed. If you want you can call to the hotline & confirm.
STAR Pkg channels available soon. Still the engineers working on that. So no worries…. Be patient.
We are getting the Hong kong feed STAR channels.

Amalka said...

thanx Riky

cable said...

@kido-cmb

thanks

lets hope they can uplink star package today?

AMD said...

Tks Kido & Riky

Amalka said...

@KIDO-CMB

did u mean south africa Super Sport Channel?

cbnsatcustomer said...

Did the software upgrade without any problem. I had done the upgrade when it was available last month. CBNSat name and logo has been replaced with DialogTV.

AMD said...

@ Cableguy

All u hav to do is select IRD update from the menu and jus let the decoder do the rest. During the upgrade it will ask u some simple questions, u jus have to say ok to them.

But make sure u dont press any buttons while the upgrade is in progress cuz this may screw it up sometimes.

AMD said...

@ Amalka

No Kido means thats DTV now has 7 super sports channels.

*ZEE SPORTS
*ESPN
*STAR SPORTS
*NEO
*NEO PLUS
*TEN
*STAR CRICKET

russel said...

KIDO

lets hope so....

alf said...

AND COMPARED TO DISH,7 SUPER MOVIE CHANNELS,

Priyantha De Silva said...

@ AMD,
Didn't you try to do IRD Upgrade yet ?

soorapappa said...

@terry,amd
Thanks. I'll check again and give call to CC.

Thanura said...

Guys,
If DTV is going to give hong kong feed of star channels, wat about STAR CRICKET.
if they give us hong kong feed of star cricket would they show sri lanka vs Australia series. or will they give priority to other matches.

Comments please !

riky said...

@cable

Star world will be the Indian Feed,Only Star Movies will be east asian.

AMD said...

@ Priyantha

Im in office now, will try when i go home in the evening and comment after that.

Looks like we are in for couple of exciting weeks...

kumara said...

HI ALL,

MACHANGS HAVE SOME SYMPATHY FOR LESSER PRIVILEDGE PEOPLE. YOU 1400 PACKAGERS ENJOY EVERYTHING. NOT BOTHERS ABOUT OTHERS. TALK ABOUT NEW CHANNELLS, SW UP GRADE, COMING CHANNELLS. SHAMLESS BUGGARRS. THINK ABOUT YOUR BROTHERS IN THIS BLOG AT LEAST WHO CANNOT VIEW ANY ONE OF THESE GOOD CHANNELLS.

AMD said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
cable said...

@thanura

there is no hong kong feed of star cricket. star cricket is only available for the indian subcontinent

@riky

thanks! i thought so too!

soorapappa said...

according to the updates here, we can expect below channels soon ? (correct me if I'm wrong)
star world, star plus, star vijay, star gold ?, star movies, star cricket, GOD TV, FTV (8 channels)

If we get 18 per one TP, it's only 6 available (as per today morning, there are 48 channels). My question is all above will be added to existing TPs (what about the quality then?) or only 6 will be added (I like to remove plus and gold :-) ? please comment.

kumara said...

AMD,

I SAID THIS IN GOOD SPIRIT. YOU KNOW AMD WHEN I READ THIS BLOG HOW DO I FEEL.

IT IS LIKE GOING TO A TEMPLE IN YOUR BRAND NEW CAR. YOU GET DOWN FROM CAR WITH YOUR FAMILY. KEEP HEAD HIGH. DOESNT LOOK AROUND. BEE LINE TO THE TEMPLE. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO LOOK AT YOU WISHING THEY ARE ALSO FORTUNATE LIKE YOU. YOU DONT DO ANYTHING FOR THEM. YOU WILL SAY WHAT CAN I DO FRO THEM. SO AMD SAME ARGUMENT. YOU CANT DO ANYTHING. SO ENJOY. LETS OTHER SUFFER.
IF MAHATHMA GANDHI THOUGHT IN THE SAME WAY INDIA IS STILL UNDER THE BRITISH RULE. NEVER MIND. DONT TAKE THIS SERIOUS. THIS IS ONLY AN OPINION

cableguy said...

@AMD

Thanks for the info on IRD upgrade. Will try at home this evening.

Amalka said...

just nowi called to DTV CC & ask from them what are the upcoming channels he said NDTV & SRTV

Amalka said...

very funny DTV CC people

AMD said...

@ Amalka

Maybe the CC people havent been told about the channels as yet cuz these channels are still being tested ?

Well thats the only reason i can think of ....

KIDO-CMB said...

Hi,

Pls keep ur Decoder ON until the Automatic SW upgrading done.
Dtv ppl going to send the Tele text to everyone now.

KIDO-CMB said...

@ soorapappa:
STAR GOLD & STAR ONE channels are not available in da line now.

Jesika said...

Pls help me

If i use 50m AV cable to get DTV to my room TV, will the picture quality drops?
Pls comment

alf said...

RUKMAL

TO USE 50M AV CABLE TO GET CONNECTED TO YOUR ROOM,YOU MUST BE STAYING AT TEMPLE TREES OR MUMTAZ MAHAL

soorapappa said...

Thanks Kido. It's Better :-)
Do you have any idea about pay per view. As per riky earlier, it'll be available with official launch. Is it planned for Aug 2 as per some other blogger ? (I'm keep on asking this because lots of our poor colleagues including myself with 500 and 900 packages like to get couple of some good quality movie channels and sports channles. Also some of the guys having comet are also waiting for package allocation and pay per view)

@Jesika,
Technically, signal will get noise along with the length of wire. Definitely say you cannot use RF out, because I've tried it for 15-20m and quality dropped considerably.

cableguy said...

@Jessica

Every time you split the signal, there is a slight drop in quality. However, if you are getting an overall good signal strength, this may not effect you much.

I am sure you meant 5 meters. If it is 50 meters, you probably will loose some signal quality along the way, unless you have very high quality cable.

KIDO-CMB said...

@ Alf: All add free movie channels.

@ Amalka:
DTV becomes the best value TV channel holders with 7super sports channels in south Asia. Sorry my mistake.

AMD said...

@ KIDO-CMB

Is Channel V there ?

KIDO-CMB said...

DTV Wishes to upgrade the STB software (Decoder) by 3.00pm, 6.00pm and 9.00pm on 18th July the latest (Globally). Whoever missed the above slots can do manually as mentioned below. (This option will be available for the next two weeks)

KIDO-CMB said...

@ AMD:
No, not at the moment.

cbnsatcustomer said...

There's a new msg to automatic software update.

alf said...

@ KIDO

WHAT IS THE LATEST ON STAR PACKAGE AND WHEN WILL IT BE UPLINKED?

WHEN IS STAR CRICKET GOING TO BE ON AIR.

AMD said...

@ KIDO-CMB

So STAR channels will be:

STAR WORLD
PLUS
MOVIES
VIJAY

correct ?

Jesika said...

sorry guys
i mean 15m.
thanks

laksirif said...

@amd
Gold was to be added. DTV hv confirmed that Star Cricket too will be added.

During the S/W upgrade DTV advised that the decoder should not be switched off and to avoid changing of channels etc. until the process is over which would take about 10 mins. As otherwise the software could get corrupted and may result in having to replace the decoder.

After the s/w upgrade unlike now once you set the Parental Control pass word, it will remain in the system even if you do a default setting. Further, when new channels
are added we wouldn't hv to do any scanning.

TechnoGuy said...

@ Riky, KIDO-CMB, Laksirif and others

Thanks for your valuable information.


It is good news that the STAR Cricket channel is coming on board soon. Maybe LBN will launch it before Dialog, but what matters is quality and service in the long term, not in the next few days.

TechnoGuy said...

Posted again for the new blog post.

What pay television service do you think is the best in Sri Lanka?

Vote at http://www.technoguy.tk

The poll is on the right side bar of the blog.

You've got only 2 days more to vote. More polls coming soon!

laksirif said...

In my view we should continue to fight for justice & fair play and push DTV to give a better deal for their customers. DTV should be open for constructive criticism.

DTV is firm on one thing to have two 900 pkgs. One with for old CBN customers who will hv the patience to wait until DTV invite 850 pkg customers to upgrade to 900. Other 900 category will have the same line up without ESPN & POGO.

DTV is finalizing the communication to be sent out to old CBN Sat customers.

russel said...

@KIDO, laksirif and riky and tery

is there a probability of them uplinking the star package today?

what about GODTV? someone told me that there are some ethical issues for them to deal with. is that true?

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

i have an unusual problem. My DTV decoder has been turned off for around 8 months now since i have dishtv. My dishtv subscription expires in october and then i plan to reactivate my DTV account.

Does this mean i'll be stuck with the old software coz by October DTV would have shut down the software upgrade stream? Is there a place to flash the new software into the firmware of the STB (like BIOS flash in computers)? Do DTV service centers do this type of thing?

I,Robot said...

thr was an IRD upgrade on today around 9.10pm

TechnoGuy said...

TechnoGuy said...

@ LST
Have you switched on the decoder yet?

Possibly you can still update software (feature is enabled) even if they have scrambled the channels for you.

Try and see. Or have they actually disconnected you?

Or else they can replace your decoder with a new one.
They will take the existing one and install the new software at their offices, and resell it.
I don't think they will take away and update your existing one because it takes time.

satya said...

Dear friends
Today 8.20PM LBN Started channel Star Crickrt.

AMD said...

My decoder had been automatically updated when i got home, around 6.30pm. Everything is as what priyantha said earlier.

Kavan said...

I see the new channels when I switched on DTV, however in the process DTV seems to have first reset factory defaults and deleted my favourite list. It is a pain to redo all those customizations.

cable said...

These LBN Guys sure do move fast wish DTV guys were half as fast, still strugging to give the star channels

what to do no LBN coverage in my area!

cable said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
cable said...

By the way the limit of 18 channels per transponder is not a restriction put by the DTV management to reduce pixelation caused by bandwidth problems. DTV head end equipment has a maximum limit of 18 channels which they can successfully multiplex, encode and uplink to a transponder

As DTV is stuffing the maximum number of channels possible per transponder expect the quality on 3rd transponder channels to decrease as(if?) they add the star package

TechnoGuy said...

Well,
At least we can be sure Dialog will get every new channels that LBN gets, even after LBN. That has been the case so far.

I guess LBN will be first with HDTV and all too.

Nevermind, as long as we Dialog TV customers too receive a good service, and the STAR channels some day soon.

alf said...

LST

HAVE STAR CRICKET BEEN ACTIVATED ON DISH?

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

@technoguy,
No i havent turned off the decoder in around 8 months. No point turning it on coz i use its dish to pick dishtv signals off nss6.

@alf,
yeah its active since today morning.

Lightning_Struck_Tower said...

technoguy i meant i havent turned on the decoder in 8 months, not turned off.

laksirif said...

@Russel

Uplinking of Star pkg will be done within the next few days once DTV overcome th etechnical issues.

God TV & Wijey TV too will be added

yakuza said...

@laksirif
@kumara

do u have cbnsat 850/= package? anybody else

the only new channels we can see is
"the buddhist"

and freakin "set" and "set sab"

"neo sport plus" was there for about three days and its also gone

true that we have additional 'espn' and 'pogo' but common give us a break!!

@riky, kido-cmb

will there be a change of the channel lineup (850) soon?

believe me i am a patient person but this is testing my limits

manura said...

hi everyone
They have updated my decoder. After that No color problem.
I have another small question regarding Satelite telecommunication.
1. What is the diffrenece between TCP/IP protocol and data transmission in sat communication

There should be a difference otherwise satelite would get crammed up when more users get connected. But to do an software upgrade and make sure software is transmitted without an error to the customer over the air sat protocol should use a something like TCP/IP.

2. Is the decoder uploading some details to the satelite eg. Veiwing pattern of channels.
Then there can be a privacy issue.

3. What are the new channels in 500 package. One of my friends want to get 500 package.

If anybody can enlighten me please do.

Nathan said...

hi

can anyone tell me if weekly epg is only on Cinemax at the moment?

and we cannot see the description of program on epg for a movie that woud be running at that time?

Are the above two issues a problem after the new s/w was downloaded?

bank_dude said...

I did try to update SW few times yesterday but failed. But I managed to update my decoder today morning. I noticed that they have activated the green button of the remote for audio preferences. Earlier when u press the info button twice you will get movie info. But now it is not there. Can someone confirm that.

@LST,

I think it's better to update your decoder now. Take it to one of your friends place who has DTV connection and update your decoder software.

kumara said...

Yakuza,

SORRY, I HAVE 1400/- . I HAD 850/- AND GOT IT UPGARDED TO WATCH HBO CHANNELS AND TEN SPORTS.

YOUR WAITING WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON DTV. THEY WILL GIVE MOST OF THE GOOD CHANNELLS TO 1400/-

YOU WILL GET SOME HINDI CRAP AND ONE OR TWO GODD ONES. THATS ALL YOU CAN EXPECT.

IF YOU CAN AFFORD, GET IT UPGRADED TO 1400/-. DTV DOESNOT HAVE A HEART. DONOT EXPECT GOOD THINGS FROM THEM.

THEY ONLY WANT THREE THINHS. THAT IS MONEY... MONEY.... AND MONEY..

Kavan said...

I see EPG on Few channels, but it seems to take a long time to load until such time you see a blank screen. After you look at a different EPG and go back to one you have looked at previously it still takes about 30 seconds to load. Is that normal on DTV ?

TERRY said...

Guys in the 850.00 pack,If you not getting the new channels (NEO,NEO+,AUSTRALIA NETWORK,SAB,HALLMARK,ETC) just call the CC and inform them to convert your package to 900.00 and specificaly mention that you are a old customer and you have ESPN and POGO.

The new technicality at their end is such you will return ESPN and POGO when they upgrade.

Waruna said...

@ LST
Why don't you take ur decoder to a friend's place, hook it up to his dish and see whether u can do the sw upgrade. If that doesn't work (due to your card being not active or whatever) you can get a Rs. 100 connection I suppose. Anyway, even if you want to reactivate ur account in october DTV guys should be able to upgrade ur software over the phone.

Amalka said...

DTV confirmed star cricket will come with 4th Transponder...they have nather 6 channels for the 3rd Transponder it's for GOD TV , STAR Movies,STAR World ,STAR Plus ,STAR Vijay , Star Gold....

Waruna said...

New software is fine. 7 day EPG, Colour signal on RF out.(Except for the stupid looking startup screen).

BTW, how do you get the synopsis now ? Earlier you could get this when you press some button twice. (I think it's info - can't remember)

kumara said...

Yakuza,

YOU SEE THAT TERRY ALREADY CONFIRMED WHAT I SAID. WHAT YOU CAN SEE NOW, YOU WILL GET AFTER OFFICIAL LAUNCH.

NEO - CHANEELS ARE USELESS. THEY SHOW MOST OF THE TIMES INDIAN MATCHES AS IF THERE IS NO ANY OTHER CRICKET PLAYING NATION IN THE WORLD

AUSTRALIAN NETWORK IS A FREE TO AIR CHANNELL. IT DOENOT COST A CENT FOR DTV TO GIVE THIS CHANNELL TO EVRYBODY

SAB IS HINDI CRAP AND USELESS

ONLY GOOD CHANELL IS HALLMARK. AGAIN IT IS SIMILAR TO AXN. NOTHING NEW.

SO YAKUZA YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHETHER THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT

Jesika said...

@ bank_dude

The info button works with EPG, when you press EPG and press info. you will get the description.

@ LST
dont fear
When you resubscribe with DTV they will exchange your decode.(if you couldnt able to get the new s/w)
even for my RF colour problem they changed my decoder.

Jughead said...

@terry

"The new technicality at their end is such you will return ESPN and POGO when they upgrade. "

sorry, i didnt catch that. can you refrase it.

does that mean we can upgrade to 900/- , get the new channels & have ESPN & POGO now it self?

AMD said...

@ Amalka

Did C/C tell u this ?

Kido-cmb / terry / laksiri / riky - can u confirm this ?

TERRY said...

@Jughead,

They have coded the old CBNsat customers who had ESPN and POGO on a differant segmant,They can automaticaly identify this,They are holding it because of the 50.00 increase and they need the consent of the customer for activation.And the answer to your question is yes you can and call the CC,To be on the safer side just mention of pogo and espn.

@ Kumara
DTV pays for the rugger content on Australian Network (Which is encrypted)

@Laksirif
Vijay is also a star channel.

cbnsatcustomer said...

@bank_dude

I'm a old cbnsat customer.

Green button was working before the upgrade. I could select "English" or "Chinese" as the language preference. But now there's only the "unkown" option.

Jughead said...

@Terry

Thanks. i was under the impression we have to wait till the official launch. i shall call them

bank_dude said...

@cbnsatcustomer,

Mine it was not working before.

Enupul said...

what's new password

russel said...

guys!!!!!!!!! a new thread has been created. so blog there.

@laksirif

thank you very much for the information. Are they hoping to uplink before this weekend or after that?

I'm getting really inpatient now.

laksirif said...

@ russel,

Yes. TT's what they are trying. But many things could happen 'Between the Cup & the Lip'

I shall always share the information if I hv the chance to log in at the time of receiving such details.

Terry & Kido too are doing the same. Therefore you will always here from any of us about latest developments at DTV
