My DStv Hardware


The DStv Explora has a daily maintenance slot and will download the software when it is next switched on again. The downloading of new software takes approximately 10 minutes.

You can manually update your software on the DStv HD PVR (2P, 2U and 4P) by doing the following:

Menu > Advanced Options > DSD Upgrade > “Red button”

Once your decoder software is up-to-date you can reboot your decoder and allow it 15 minutes to pick up any changes.

You can watch online using DStv Now (either via our app or online). You can live stream your channels and also use Catch Up to make sure you don’t miss out when the lights are off.
