DStv HD PVR Decoder

The introduction of the new DStv HD PVR (High Definition Personal Video Recorder) Decoder has further revolutionised the television experience with lifelike viewing, sharper images, more vibrant colours and precision picture quality.

Youll be wowed.

Now you can enjoy colours so rich you can feel their intensity, and a picture so sharp you can see every face in the crowd.

High Definition Television (HDTV)

Generally refers to TV with at least twice the vertical and horizontal picture resolution of current digital and analogue TV systems. This makes the picture at least four times as detailed and in 16:9 formats. Note that HDTV and DTV are not the same thing - HDTV is one format of DTV.

The HD PVR allows you to view one channel, while recording one other channel simultaneously.

It also offers you the following benefits:
  • Record 150 hours of standard definition TV (double the SD PVR) or 50 hours of HD TV.
  • 24 hour i-Plate
  • Surround Sound capability
  • Pause live TV programming
  • Rewind programming
  • Fast forward and slo-mo programming you have recorded

    The HD PVR also introduces a new feature called "Favourite Channels".

    If you select your favourite channels, you get the following:
  • A personalised TV Guide, listing the schedules for just those channels.
  • A personalised viewing environment (like the current bouquets on other decoders) which includes only your selected channels.
  • This means that when surfing through the channels, you only see the channels you have selected, so no more hopping over unwanted or unavailable channels.
  • A Favourite Channels Grid similar to the existing channel grid, but listing only the channels you selected, making it easier to tune between channels.

    Contains:
  • Decoder
  • Remote

    Please Note: There is an additional monthly access fee of R70.00 for PVR Functionality.

    PROMPT AND VERY GOOD SERVICE

    Purchase of DSTV PVR

    I received excellent service from the consultant, Ilhaam Lapperts, I dealt with. This person assisted me with all my queries in a professional and timeous manner. The delivery of the item was really quick and efficient. I will definitely buy from Kalahari.com again. Thank you!

    Ordering, installation, function

    Efficient and quick delivery from Kalahari. Get quotes for installation-chances are high it will be more than the decoder price, especially adding xtraview. Had to swop sim card for xtraview capable one-good service from Multichoice for this, though includes small fee. PVR and xtraview great for keeping household happy, though only available on premium subscription, which is getting quite expensive, but no real other alternatives in SA.

    PVR is great

    We love the PVR. Would have liked a larger storage disk.

    HD PVR Review

    The HD PVR is the best thing since TV was invented, with a built in hard drive, it is possible to record all the movies you want to watch. The PVR, although macnificent, can do better, if a dvd player wat installed in the PVR, dvd's can be watched in HD, and to top that, a blue ray HD dvd player, would make the PVR complete. I expect that it may be possible in future, and for now, the HD PVR is better than any standard tv.

    I'M 100% SATISFIED WITH THE PURCHASE.

    DStv HD PVR DECODER

    Not the first product ive bought through kalahari.com and definitely not the last. Enjoying my PVR Functionality and impressed with the speedy service of Kalahari.com

    Dstv HD DECODER

    It is perfect for my family as i enjoy a fast paced lifestyle and want to remain in the know, especially in the run-up to the festive season

    Dstv delivery

    Was delivered as promised

    The best

    I gave it a 5 because I received the best service from all Parties namely Kalahari, DSTV and the installer.

    Excellent Service

    Love the service kalahari has offered and loving my new purchase (PVR Deocder), now i can go make tea!

    PVR Decoder

    I am very happy with the decoder and would recomend it to any other customer

    Good Job

    My parcel was delivered within 24hours as promised. Thank you

    I am very happy with my purchase but I didn't know the installation fees would cost me more than purchasing the item. People out there first get installation fees before purchasing goods (not only PVR's). I can't wait to get it going but that would most probably be mid 2013!

    HD PVR - Great Purchase!

    Firstly I received the decoder less than ten hours after ordering it, which was fantastic! Secondly, I had the device up and running in minutes - the build quality of the device is great and the functionality even better, I have been purchasing on Kalahari since 2007 and have not been disappointed once - keep it up guys!

    What an excellent service! Even though I live in the middel of NO WHERE you guys delivered my pakage before 12h00 the next day. I am so impressed!!! Love Kalahari!!!! Great job you guys, can't wait for my next pakage!

    First time buyer

    Well it was my forst time purchasing through Kalahari.net and what a wonderful expereience. Not only is the purchasing process smooth and user friendly but is also very secure. Delivery was a bit sluggish due to the Satawu strike but it was finally delivered and IM happy Will definately be purchasing more products though kalahari.net

    HD channel access

    I've had the product for about 2 months now, its functioning OK so far but haven't really played around with other features it come with. My problem is about receiving HD channels, you must take the premium package +R65 to get that. Why not DSTV give its customers freedom of enjoying HD channels (+R65) with any available package DSTV have. There's complaints about the product already but its expensive to have it. I think its time now that this industry starts seeing more competitors so that customers do get a complete product thats with value for their hard worked money, not what DSTV is doing to its loyal customers. People pay for DSTV for the sake of having it but they don't really enjoy for what they pay for.

    Upgrade the sofware.

    The PVR was great when it was new about 14 months ago.Despite having purchased two new remotes which I thought was the problem, the only operation that works smoothly is the recording of programmes.Changing from recorded channels to normal TV is not possible. Rewinding, stopping live TV and fast forwarding is an extremly frustrating process.DSTV need to get their act together.Does anyone at Kalahari pass the reviews on to DSTV for investigation?

    HD DECODER

    I rate this decoder as very poor I have exchanged it in excess of seven times I do not watch HD Recordings that is my choice. I find the staff at Randburg branch friendly but not very poor on product functions On Sunday I went in to exchange my decoder it took me more than 2.5 hours they had to exchange the recon decoder as it was faulty They continue to claim there is no problems with the decoder

    Its Awesome regardless

    The hd pvr does have its flaws but i am enjoying mine they is a couple things that dstv could change for example that rewind/foward/pause button is a issue, but overall im more then happy with mine,CHANGED THE WAY I WATCH TV,just so convenient to record some thing when you dont have time to watch and the hd channels are awesome

    Nothing but Problems

    We are currently residing in Botswana, from Canada. We purchased this product in Nov. 2011. It has NEVER worked properly. I must agree with the review from "Andre from LTT". The customer service is beyond bad. The phone reps we have dealt with ranged from rude to useless. We were advised to send it away for repair when it should have been replaced with a new one. Also, we were not given even a basic unit to use for the 3 weeks it was away;we had to buy one! It worked marginally for a week after it was "repaired" then the old problems started again with some new problems in addition. Again the the phone reps were useless. I would advise against buying this piece of junk until they get it right. Additionally, DSTV you should be ashamed by what you call customer service, and doubly ashamed taking peoples hard earned money for this rubbish.

    HD PVR dissapoint

    The only good thing about the HD PVR is that it can deliver HD TV. Everything else about it is POOR and a DISSAPOINTMENT. It seems to "hang-up" very easily and you will become severely frustrated with it's stop, pause, rewind & fast-forward functions which does not function as smoothly as a STD PVR. Also the cache resets everytime you change channel so you cannot rewind 2 hours back if you changed the channels. I'm convinced the software on the HD PVR's is still at a development stage !! DSTV, you need to get this sorted out asap

    dstv HD PVR

    i live in Angola if i buy this decoder can you ship to angola and could it work in Angola?

    Delivery

    If you want to be disappointed then order that PVR. I placed an order and paid for mine on the 29th of last month only yo receive it yesterday. I stay in Midrand just outside Johannesburg! And when I called to complain about this delay I was told that the universal remote controller that I had ordered had not yet been received from the supplier. So I insisted on getting the decoder with it's standard remote controller and I was asked to pay an extra R35 towards shipment of the universal remote controller. I paid instantly and FNB sent them notification. A couple of days later nothing was delivered and the status on my order had not changed. I only got both the decoder and the universal remote controller yesterday. So guys if you want to get this with 24 hours go buy from a shop and carry it home and not have to wait forever! Very disappointing service, I don't see myself ever buying anything from Kalahari ever again!!!!!!!!!!!

    Get a grip

    I'd trust that if you were to buy this product you'd have done the required research beforehand - as with anything remotely technical. This is an excellent deal, qualifies for free shipping as well.

    Wrongful Advertising

    This product may be great, but nowhere is mentioned that you have to upgrade your dish installation to dual feed LNB, and that an additional monthly fee is due to DSTV. Get quotes and do your maths before thinking you're in for only the advertised price...

    best buy

    Now I can watch what I want to and my husband can watch his sport. No more arguments!

    Awesome price, awesome product

    Kalahari.net is the cheapest everywhere, trust me I looked everywhere. The product is just as cool, HD rocks.

    Brilliant Product - Brilliant Price

    This is a brilliant product at a brilliant price. I have not seen this price at any store.

    Great value

    The HD PVR recorder is the way to go - never miss anything and this is the best price I have seen - anywhere!

    DStv HD PVR DECODER

    Great Price!!

    DStv HD PVR DECODER

    Well Priced! R1400.00 is a steal!
