    DSTV Explora 2

    Hi, can anyone advise me with the following?
    I currently have an old PVR (record 2 and watch 1) which is on it's last legs,like me. I'm a keen rugby follower and in the season am usually able to catch most of the best of Super 15, Aviva Premiership and French Super 14.
    I have spoken to salesmen at various stores about the ability to do this with Explora and the answer is always the same. The Explora is superior to to my PVR except I can only record 1 and watch 1. I've asked about "Catch Up" and it appears I wont be able to watch FULL games, only Highlights. Anyone out there know more about it, and if you're into the same thing as me, what do you do?
    Grateful for ALL and ANY reply's.

    Using the Explorer, You get a second decoder and activate 'Xtra View' for R85 per decoder connected, which is tied to the Xplorer decoder, and then you can record and watch indiviual channels on each decoder.

    👍Thanks a lot but think I'll forget about the extra 85 bucks. Already too expensive.

    Agreed, what gets my goat even further is all the crap advertising they spew and we have to endure to the same amount in time as other subscription free TV commercial stations

    And then there's the Pay-To-View movies - another stunt to extract extra bucks!
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    which you get to see a dozen repeated times a couple of months later as part of the standard package.
