Dialog TV Manual IRD upgrading

IRD Upgradeis disabled on my OLD CBNSAT Decoder

Rukshan said...

I am having MP4 decoder. I have done the software update manually. After done the update TV/R button in my remote not working. Is this common for everyone ?

sattvmania said...

my old decorder was replaced to mpeg4 one today. have setplan 14 that is the reason. but this one is not as reliable as the old one as SIGNAL QUALITY is 82 before 92 and STRENGTH is 65 before above 70. And becareful using remote decorder might get stuck as i found out today,power button,parental lock on remote are accidents waiting to happen.

sattvmania said...

thks dtv but set plans need tobe more value for money.starmovies,utv world,utv movies should be in one new set plan.

WELE said...

Rukshan you are correct. the TV/R button is not working now!

Thanura said...

My decoder was automatically updated @ 3AM on 8th of January(today).

After the upgrade the volume bar is shown on the bottom of the screen.

and by pressing "info" button twice we can get information about the current show. Earlier it was satellite/channel information.

TV/R button is not working. I think it's because we don't have any radio channels in the line up.

DID SOMEONE FIND ANYTHING ELSE ?

bank_dude said...

@ Thanura

There are few additions
1. You can prepare 5 favorite channels lists and earlier it was 1.
2. System standby issue.
3. When muted OSD shows muted sign and earlier it was volume bar turns to red.
4. Blue screen on standby and earlier it was black

Anuruddha said...

@619

hey buddy u r lucky....... for us set plan 11 is no more available. Yesterday i called to Dialog TV Customer care but the guy who answered the call confirm Set Plan 11 not available and Dialog has no idea to put it back.... I told tat guy, itz worth to add that Set Plan 11 back because most ppl luv to watch Star Movies and Ten Sports. If Dilaog wants to exist in the market definitely they have to listen to the customers..... will c.......

Anuruddha said...

Hey Guys... I have a new MPEG4 Decoder and Yesterday I updated the software manually as it explaining in the City Hits Blog. But today I got a screen message that says keep on the Decoder 10th of 3:00AM because the software update is available... So guys should I keep on my decoder at 3.00AM.... I think I got that update earlier by manually software update... Plz I need suggestions... :)

DLR said...

Now we can search other channels EPG while watching another channel. It is great.

LANKA INFO said...

Cityhits Sri Lanka Now on YouTube

Dialog TV latest videos updated!

Conny said...

@ LANKA INFO

It seems that the OTA Download feture is disabled in my decoder. It appears in Dark Blue color and I cannot select it.

Is there any other way to do this update or is there another update scheduled on the 10th at 3.00 am as Anurudhha has said???

chami_tv said...

I think DTV must do few changes to their SW nest time. one of the important thing is making the current channel visible when user press ok button to get channel list. they can make the video to appear in one corner so that it does and the channel list appear in left hand side as a column. because as soon as we get channel list the complete picture is covered by it and is disturbing.

Also they should sort the channels further making same type channels appear in same area..for the moment UTV movies appear far away from other movie channels such as Star movies..

When we mute the sound of the decoder it must stay mute even if we make volume down, and must unmute only if we press the mute button or increase the volume. this is normal in sony tv. so that if user want a sudden mute he can mute and lower the volume to desired level and unmute xhin prefer level.

when we access the other channel epg data still the current video mus appear in the screen at least in a corner so that it does not disturb the viewer.

DIALOG is only sponsoring this tour, 3 matches. It may be extended to the Indian tour. Since Dialog is sponsoring the team, they have to wear the t-shirts, no matter what their individual contracts are.

The Hutch contract was over, so Airtel offered him one long before they launched here.

Dialog - The Future Today: Dialog TV?

Dialog Telekom PLC is one of the top listed companies in Sri Lanka as everyone knows. And are doing a great job in the field of Mobile and fixed telephony sector. Absolutely their service is above the level and they are certainly the prominent leader in the mobile based telephone network.

On 2007 February 10th (correct me if i'am wrong) Dialog undertook the Satellite television service from CBN Sat, and began its era of Direct to home satellite television network in the name of Dialog Television Pvt Ltd promising an array of world class channels and world’s best entertainment, educational sports, movies and religious channels.

As a consumer from the time of CBN Sat, I have some questions to be asked:

(I hope someone can answer these questions)

1. When Dialog took over the TV from CBN sat, they had RAJ TV & RAJ Digital. Both the channels are not available in the line up now. Last year with mega hype they introduced Kalaignar TV. Now, at the moment DTV has only 2 Tamil Channels - Kalaignar and Vijay TV. As everyone knows, there are more than 18 Tamil Channels in India. Even the illegal cable and DTH services are showing over 10 Indian Tamil channels. Why can’t Dialog add some more Tamil Channels which will be favourable in the point of their business strategies?


2. Which language is used in Channel C? (Singlish?) And what are the so called announcers/DJ’s thinking when they are presenting the programmes?


3. Why are you having unnecessary Hindi soap and Movie channels? Which viewer group are you targeting for these channels?



4. Without any prior notice, they remove Channels and replace it with some useless channels. Why is this happening to us?



5. In which basis do the relevant officers chose the channels? Are there a vast viwership for Baby TV, ZEE Music etc



6. Disruptions During rainy time, of course I understand it is a technical fault, but in Europe and America, they have found the solution to overcome this situation. The future today….. Shouldn’t you implement it today?



7. Set Plans are convenient and user friendly. Why can’t you introduce some more Plans?



8. Instead of having a number of Hindi Musical channels, why can’t you include regional channels such as SS music….

Before I close, I would not forget that you guys are really doing a great job. The Customer care people are so down to earth and very helpful. I must appreciate the management for providing world class entertainment to our living room. I would be grateful if the Team Dialog can take the pros and cons which I have stated, and do the necessary.

Rescan can be done as follows:

Hope it works and the channels come back on.

Lots of Maldiven using Dish Tv. They are briging from India and use 120cm dish.Cos local cable operaters little expecive and less chs.But now can see few Airtel dishes also with Airlet sticker.These people not that much interrested other chs they like all Hindi tele dramas and Hindi songs.Big demand for Sony CH and ESPN for foot ball.For other perpes they use internet in the midnight.

podiman said...

@SP,
OK thanks for the information. If you have ADSL you can have better packages.

Fahim said...

Apparently, Dialog TV expects you to pay for the full month even if you disconnect in the middle of the month. I just called customer service asking to disconnect and they say, "You have to settle your outstanding."

I was like, "OK, so how much is the pro-rated amount up to today?" And they say that they can't pro-rate and that I have to pay upto the 15th of February. I said I wasn't going to pay them at all if that's how they were going to be :)

Fahim said...

@podiman You sent me this info before but I inadvertently deleted the e-mail. Can you please send me the alternative satellite list info and the "ADSL Option" info to fahimf (at) gmail (dot) com?

Thanks in advance :)

Prasanna said...

@fahim

Don't disconnect your connection. Just wait without paying until they disconnect.

I disconnected my GSM and got billed for two more months after disconnecting. All they said was that there is a issue with their billing system!

This is "Future today"

Nokia said...

@fahim,
Dont wait till they disconnect. You can give your request to disconnect your bill on the very last day of their billing circle. So that you dont have to pay anything additional.

Further if you wait till they disconnect then you are leagally liable to pay the dues.... It's common to all.....

But according to the new agreement DTV is having the right to remove the units upon permanant disconnection. DBL chk on that too...

Fahim said...

Apparently, according to the latest customer support supervisor or whatever that I spoke to, Dialog employees seem to be unable to realize that some people want to permanently disconnect their service. I was told that what I can't get my bill pro-rated if I wanted a temporary disconnect but otherwise, I can write to them and they'll simply process the disconnect.

So sent in a fax asking for the disconnect and waiting to see what happens :)

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

The simple reason for my previous comment is; I brought AirTEL Data connection and they told me that it will be activated within 72(??-such a long time) hrs. But it got activated only after 6 days even for that i had to contact CC several times. Every time CC promised me that within 6 hrs it will be activated. but i waited and waited.. finally after 6 days (144 hrs) it was activated. But now i'm having a problem with connecting to internet. for that Airtel respond was CC do not have idea and the technical team will contact within 1/2 hrs. Now i'm waiting 3 days nobody contact me yet. See the AirTEL after sales/customer service. Another thing that i noticed is, when ever i contact CC in the evening i had to wait about 20 min and the same guy was answering! how that can be happened.(the reason may be)
1. They automatically direct me to same guy(??)
2. Or they do not have enough stuff in the CC.

Ch7 to Ch17 is with test colour bars, Ch18 is giving a Sinhalese channel no name is mentioned on it. It looks like an educational channel. Hope they will come up with some good new channels.
