So how is everyones VAST? Do tell. Awfully quiet 'round here lately.
I've noticed they're doing those stupid ad break loops on Go now. style_emoticons/default/sad.gif Also, AFL from Ten is no longer on SCTV North and South. Still on Aurora's one though.
How is my VAST??
Did I really expect it to be better than Aurora? Yes.
Was I dissapointed? Of course. So many more channels with so much more bad programming, new Wintal pvr 210hd skips the ads brilliantly, we record and delete everything. And how do you read the black epg text on the selected deep blue background, really smart move. And it reboots at least 1-2 times a night, talk about a pain in the proverbial.
Bought a UEC dsd 4121 last xmas, 2 weeks to get activated, my fault mainly trying to get on thru xmas break probably.
AND IT DIED YESTERDAY. 2-3 WEEKS OUT OF WARRANTY. (no lights,zilch,nada........?power supply?.....cant open it, voids warranty sticker.)
The dealer is going to send it back. Will i hold my breath waitng for a replacement? I dont think so.
Will i get another one? I dont really have a choice being well out of Terrestial range.
And the Aurora UEC dsd 990, 4 yrs old and keeps chugging along. (So far, touchwood and turn 3 times.)
UEC have a monopoly i guess. $269 seems a lot for $50 worth of electronics.
Anyone else out there with VAST UEC problems?
