New Software update

Well people it looks like a brand new software update is now available for Dialog TV STB's. The notable changes are apparently
  1. The volume control has moved to Top Left Hand Corner of the screen.
  2. Current & Next Programme EPG on Channel Preview Screen.
  3. New Dialog Logo at bottom right.
  4. Faster loading of EPG.
You can either wait for Dialog to automatically update the software or if you are impatient then you can always do the following.
  1. Press "Menu".
  2. Select "Info".
  3. Select "Software Upgrade".
  4. Press "Ok".
Whatever you do, please do not switch off the decoder until the software has been updated. On some channels scrolling messages can be seen indicating the availability of the software upgrade.

In addition to the scroll we believe Dialog TV should have sent a message via their mailing system directly to the decoders.

On a positive note Dialog TV is at least updating channel names faster than before. Hallmark rebranded as DIVA Universal on Sunday & by monday morning Dialog TV had updated their channel lineup as well as website.

We hope Ten Cricket is added soon & the new Fox Family Movies channel is added which is expected to compliment Star Movies.

DTV will remove existing channels and put new channels but you will have to pay to get them.

At least 99 rupees per new channel like discovery turbo and science.

Dialog TV !

When to add Ten Cricket ?
Where to add it ?
What channel to remove to accommodate it ?

jagath said...

I called dialog tv customer care and i asked when did they launch "Ten Cricket" channel. They told me a wonderful answer. " If ten cricket added they remove ten sports channel. i think its a not good answer. we want ten sports channel. it is a very good channel and we want ten cricket channel. i cant realize what are they doing..........

Lisura said...

I'm not surprised to receive a such response from DTV.

As I told several times recently,
DTV have completely forgotten the satisfaction of the subscriber and resorted only to profit making !

Ten Action is available

Lisura said...

@ Priyantha

Where ? in the same slot of Zee Sports ?

Max television is not available for days. DTV is counting the complaints to remove the channel. Hope they will do this for other channels also like Prime TV and TH TV.

Aarti TV is also out. Hope they will replace it with a good hindu channel. There are plenty from India.

As per DTV C/C today, they do have the channel with them and are waiting for management approval for broadcast it.

I think they must be looking at what channel to remove to make way for TEN CRICKET. Thats ok, becuz we want the QUALITY channels and not the QUANTITY of channels.

Baby TV is color bar since this morning

Lisura said...

DTV have replaced some channels with color bars and watching the no. of complaints to consider removing those channels.

Baby TV is a great channel. The only one of that kind in the DTV bouquet of channels.

The other channels to go blank is Fox Crime, Max TV and Aarti TV

Nokia said...

They can remove Arti or MAX TV but not Baby TV.
My one year old baby is watching only Baby TV. That is one of the main reasons that I watch dialog tv. Tv is on morning 7 am to evening 7PM only this Channel :)

Lisura said...

@ Nokia

Very true ! this is truly a great channel and the only one of its kind on DTV platform.

Please call DTV and lodge your protest. Others also should do it for us to keep this valuable channel.

Lets not touch any of the religious channels.

Max TV is available FTA on terrestial television so lets get rid of it & add "Ten Cricket".

Yeah do not touch Baby TV, it is one of a kind.

Lisura said...

True !

Let the 4 religious channels be as it is. I hope they will replace Arti tv with some good hindu channel from india !

Baby TV is a must to keep !

Nokia said...

Phoned the Dialog TV CC to check the status on the Baby TV channel. Tey said that there is a transmission error from the provider and taht will be rectified in two hours. But almost 04 hous is gone by now nothing has changed. Still Color bars,.

Lisura said...

DTV CC is lying !

They are monitoring the number of complaints they get to consider the removal of the channel.

Chandika Gunawardhana said...

Please add Ten Cricket. They're going to broadcast SA vs. ZIM cricket series only in Ten Cricket.

Removing MAX to make room for ETV is very good idea. Interesting to see what channel will be removed to make way for TEN CRICKET.
