We recommend you keep your SD PVR and link it to the HD PVR using XtraView(1). This will give you PVR functionality in 3 separate viewing environments, and interactive services in two. You will be able to view a different channel (live, from the buffer or playback) on 3 different TVs, while simultaneously recording four other channels! The HD PVR Favourite Channels feature, the HD Channel (including widescreen with Dolby digital) will be available in one environment and you can even set different Parental Control levels for each decoder. Add to this a combined recording capacity of 230 hours (2) and you are guaranteed to get so much more.More great news - the only additional monthly cost (over and above your standard subscription) is the access fee. In other words, you pay the same monthly subscription costs for a HD PVR + SD PVR combo, as you would for the HD PVR or SD PVR on its own! (3) It is possible that your installation will need to be upgraded. (4) Please visit www.dstvafrica.com for more info on XtraView. (1) XtraView is currently available on all packages. (2) The HD PVR can record up to 150 hours of SD content. If you only record HD content, the HD PVR has a recording capacity of 50 hours, ie. a minimum of 130 hours combined recording capacity.(4) MultiChoice recommends the use of a MultiChoice Accredited Installer for all XtraView installations."
