Me either, but as per previous post, thats what they are sticking to.

I dont understand a launch on a Sunday when no one is able to actually have the equipment on that day.......

hmm.. I wonder if DrP will have the most posts in this thread too... ;)

I for one, never had any issues with my MyStar except the occasional sluggish TV Guide/Planner, never had to replace it, never had to call up to complain about it.

I have a MyStar HD on order, can't wait to see what the HD channels are like.

Probably to be in line with Foxtel's launch, and they have the hardware out there already.

Do you have FTA digital channels on mystar? I didnt and had very few, after initial teething, issues.

Nup, have had FTA digital channels on Mystar since inception... occasionally you'd get an issue with the guide updates being a bit odd, but other than that they were fine.

From the complaints that I hear from all and sundry - not just people on this forum - you are in the minority.

I just got off the phone to Austar. The questions relating to MyStar HD were:
What outputs, such as HDMI, component, composite, does it have? Answer: We dont know and cant find out.
Are those outputs capable of simultaneous operation? Answer: We dont know and cant find out.

I currently distribute Austar into several other rooms via a modulator with composite input.
Anyone have answers yet?

Also the new HD channels are working and uktv hasn't yet switched its name over to uktv.the only problem is we cant see a picture until november 15 because it cant be activated till then.
Also HD is only available on component and hdmi.
it is otherwise its the same when loads up.
hope you enjoy.

I dont care about other peoples Mystars restarting in the middle of the day, why would I, has nothing to do with me.

They might be shift workers, retired or disabled in some way and thats why they are at home. Didn't you think of that?

It is comforting to know you care so much about others, very touching indeed. xx

I don't know why people like aeon pick on drp saying he posts a lot,I never knew of this site till we upgraded to mys**t and have
ongoing problems with the box.1 box was replace due to the display being faulty another as it would not lock on to free to air channels
that ones replacement was immediately replaced when the installer could not get it to work straight out of the box so had another
replacement.This was really fast for a few hours then required a reset and since then has been very slow despite being reformated
twice since then.I really hope the new box works well as that is all I want.

Order Confirmed

Congratulations, you are one of the first in line to receive a new MyStar HD when it launches on November 15. You should receive your new MyStar HD by the 25th November.
Australia Post will deliver it to your address, but if there's no adult to sign for it or you're not home, you may need to pick it up from your local post office.
Thanks and enjoy your new MyStar HD.

Hopefully i'll get a couple of days of the trial channels before it ends on the 29th...

About less than an inch wider but not as tall also much faster it takes half the time to boot and no discovery or nat geo hd yet but all the others are there.
