Oh no! Our vast set top box is broken.

Recommended Posts

So sad.  After quite a few years of solid service the sat TV set top box is broken.  Sob.  We are in Kingston SE, on the SA Limestone Coast and no one has a new one here (it’s a small town).  So for this week’s trip we will have to either access whatever can be seen on local reception or do without.

 

Ah well, we are only away for a week....

Ha, you are right Tony, it is a first world problem for sure.  And we will easily survive the loss of TV for a week.  Mind you, where we are has ABC and that’s our go to channel anyway.  Not sure about Penola, our next destination but I am sure it will be fine too.

Hi Chris and Tony

We have had an Altech for possibly 6 years without a problem. We are currently at Maroochydore (working our way slowly to Kilkivan) and by coincidence took a drive today to SatPlus at Noosaville where we bought one of its folding fibreglass dishes sometime back, and a satellite locator a few months back, both to replace fairly basic items. Today's purchase was the latest model Altech, only as it has a twin tuner, not because of a problem with the existing one.  

While there I talked to John the owner about problems with Altechs and he acknowledged early ones had a few glitches but a software upgrade fixed them and he said problems now are extremely rare.

Our older Altech is for sale for $100. Chris, if you were interested it's a pity you are in SA.

We ARE interested!   When you have time, whack it into a suitably padded box and mail it to us.  I will PM you our email and contact details.  This is very good timing.🤗
