New Software Update

According to the newest unconfirmed reports coming in, it seems that there is some sort of Software Update available on Dialog TV HD Decoders. According to the reports there is no change to the software, except for the addition of "Supreme Sat 1" in the "Satellite" menu under "Settings > Installation".

Earlier this year it was reported that Dialog TV is planning to migrate to Supreme Sat 1 due to increasing costs on the present provider and lack of bandwidth.

Let's hope this is the start of something good. We aren't sure of the details such as dish alignment, etc. However it is likely that the switch will be gradual and if Dialog TV is going to use both service providers then it would mean that the new transponders on Supreme Sat 1 will run on MPEG4 DVBS2. 

Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

SupremeSAT is in the process of constructing a state-of-the-art Teleport facility in Kandy Sri Lanka, which we expect to be fully operational by the end of September 2014.

The facility houses equipment rooms, a monitoring center, administrative offices and shelters multiple antennas ranging from 2.4m to 13m on 10.6 acres of land. High levels of redundancy are integrated into all mission critical equipment and the operations at the Kandy Teleport are covered on a 24 x 7 x 365 basis.

The Teleport offers a wide range of teleport services for voice, data, Internet and video and also is used as a command and control centre gateway for controlling various satellites.

ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ රූපවාහිනී නාලිකා විකාශන කටයුතු ඩිජිටල් තාක්ෂණයට හැරවීමේ කටයුතු දැන් ආරම්භ කර ඇත. 2017 වසර මුල වන විට මෙම කටයුතු නිම කිරීමට නියමිතිය. ඒ අනුව 2017 වසරේ සිට VHF සහ UHF තාක්ෂණයෙන් විකාශන කටයුතු කිරීම සම්පූර්ණයෙන්ම නවතා දමන අතර ඉන්පසු එම තාක්ෂණයෙන් යුතු රූපවාහිනී යන්ත්‍ර (LCD, LED ඇතුළුව) ශ්‍රී ලංකාව තුල භාවිතා කල නොහැකි වනු ඇත.

ISDB-T නැමැති ලොව අති නවීන ඩිජිටල් රූපවාහිනී විකාශන පිරිවිතරය (standard) ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ රූපවාහිනී නාලිකා විකාශනය කිරීමට තෝරා ගත් බව 2014 මැයි 20 දින ශ්‍රී ලංකා රජය නිල වශයෙන් නිවේදනය කරන ලදී.

මේ අනුව ඔබ නැවත ශ්‍රී ලංකාවට පැමිණීමේදී හෝ ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ ඔබේ නිවසට යැවීමට රූපවාහිනී යන්ත්‍රයක් මිලදී ගැනීමේදී හෝ ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේදී ඔබ රූපවාහිනී යන්ත්‍රයක් මිලදී ගැනීමේදී එම රූපවාහිනී යන්ත්‍රය ISDB-T ටියුනරය (Tuner) සහිතව නිපදවා තිබේ දැයි සොයා බැලීමට මතක තබා ගන්න, ඔබ එසේ විමසිලිමත් නොවුනහොත් සිදුවන්නේ ඔබ දුක් මහන්සියෙන් උපයා ගත් මුදලින් මිලදී ගත් රූපවාහිනී යන්ත්‍රය ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේදී භාවිතයට ගැනීමට නොහැකිව අතහැර දැමීමටය.

එයට අමතරව ඔබ ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ භාවිතා කිරීමට ජංගම දුරකථනයක් මිලදී ගන්නේ නම් එම ජංගම දුරකථනයේ ISDB-Tsb සේවාව ග්‍රහණය කරගැනීමේ පහසුකම තිබේ දැයි බලන්න අමතක කරන්න එපා. ISDB-T තාක්ෂණයෙන් ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ ඩිජිටල් රූපවාහිනී කටයුතු ආරම්භ කල පසු කිසිම ජංගම දුරකථන සේවා පහසුකමක් නොමැතිව වුවත් ඔබ සිටින ඕනෑම ස්ථානයක සිට නොමිලේම රූපවාහිනී නාලිකා නැරඹීමේ පහසුකම් ISDB-T තාක්ෂණයේ අතුරුඵලයක් වන ISDB-Tsb තාක්ෂණය ඔස්සේ ලැබෙනු ඇත.

Thanks Nilantha!

Usually set-top boxes are the easiest way ensure everyone has access to a new digital tv platform. Most countries introduce digital tv sets but also set top boxes so that old tv's will still be able to be used. Hopefully, the same will happen in Sri Lanka.

I am unable to update my Dialog TV HD decoder. I can not go to the update tab as it's not active. last update date showing as 2012. Anyone knows the reason ?

DaNuKa DaNaNjAyA said...

Vishwa said...

I'm also unable to update my HD STB software.. the selection od software update is inactive for my selection..
can anyone tell me how to activate the same..
tks...

IPTV said...

@Nilantha, ISDB-T is a very old inefficient system ( In terms of bandwidth Utilization) used in Japan and south America. You would not get a single ISDB TV set in Sri Lanka other than those brought from Japan domestic market. DVB-T2 is the latest technology and is used in many countries. We will have to purchase a ISDB-T tuner STB if we are to watch them.

patson said...

Srilanka changing the previous plan of DVB-T2 to ISDB-T is Political reason & kickbacks.Srilankan Broadcast engineers know who is behind this ISDB-T.

@Patson, Lol... Finally the country will pay for Japanese STB as against free in-built receiver in most of the TVs.

Vishwa said...

Yep my Samsung TV is also has a built in DVB-T2 tuner.. seems it will be useless if SLGov to promote ISDB
As a Nation we are very much good at getting the obsolte dumped tech always...

Sarath said...

Instead of 'Australia Network', we now get another channel 'Australia Plus'. It Covers news and sport, business, lifestyle, education and English language learning from an Australian perspective,

Mario said...

NOW HD Only Pack – Rs.690.00

neilw said...

PVR facility is now free for Gold package too. Nice move. However quite a few channels are without EPG and due to that i am unable to schedule recording feature.

DTV should rectify the issue by either:

1. Providing EPG for all channels
2. making software change so user can schedule recording by entering the channel number and the start time.

kavindu said...

Wish Dialog will add star world HD.

http://www.adaderana.lk/bizenglish/dish-tv-receives-dth-license-in-sri-lanka/

Dish TV has the license. Dialog to see competition very very very soon.

Mario said...

It's highly unlikely that DISH will give rates much less than DTV.

But they will have a good market for the Tamil speaking population, this is already evident in the North/East.

kappa said...

But its highly unlikely for them to just focus on Tamil viewers as it would not justify their investment. So they ought to come up with a deal which would make ppl move from Dialog to Dish.

kavindu said...

Shall we all do a request to dialog TV asking "star world premier HD" ?
