Question & Answers
Question: My old decoder is damaged so i want to buy a new one. i still use the old type of tv, is dstv explorer compatible to this tv?
Answer: Yes, the DStv Explora HD Decoder should be able to work. The benefits of watching something in HD will however not be available. If you have a non-HD TV, use the supplied RCA cables and connect the red, white and yellow inputs to the RCA ports (marked 1) on the back of the decoder, then connect the red, white and yellow inputs to the RCA ports on the TV. For more information or clarity regarding your enquiry, please feel free to contact your nearest Multichoice DSTV store.
