    Default To our S.African RDI members


    Hi there,
    Recently got Multichoice back after nearly a year and was disappointed to see that the wonderful Afrikaans soap '7de Laan' on SABC has lost its English language subtitles !
    I found this soap with its translated subtitles an excellent way to keep up my Afrikaans language.
    Anyone know why and how this happened and whether the subtitles are ever likely to return ?
    Dankie/Thank you

    Thanks for that ..........the DMbox 500 rcu has no subtitle button ! It has a text button which does not display subtiltles.
    Yes perhaps there is yet another 'hidden' feature in the box not mentioned in the manual ( same as the newly discovered freeze function ! )
    In view of your easy access to this channel could YOU please check next time 7de Laan on SABC comes on whether YOU get English subtitles .
    If you get them then clearly a subtitle function is to be found hidden somewhere on the DM box .
    Thanks

    Sorry I'm out of luck. Cannot get ANY schedules on the dstv website; see below........!
    Tried also the SABC 2 schedules which had 7de Laan at 3pm CAT but clearly the Multichoice schedules are special as has different programming !

    "We are in the process of upgrading our scheduling software. This will enable future PVR functionality.
    As such we only have scheduling data available 7 days in advance. Please bear with us during this transition. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

    CANNOT GET ANY SCHEDULING ON THE WEBSITE DESPITE WHAT THEY SAY ABOVE...YOU TRY !

    Will do so. I've had to put on a new lnb after a concrete truck went past and snapped the coax and broke the conenctor out of the lnb. Also the dish was covered in algae after 4 years so had to clean that off too.

    Pissing rain atm so string new 75m coax will have to wait for a bit.
