Default Showtime

Criminal minds, cold case, bones, CSI etc etc etc

Isn't this just scooby doo for grown ups?

Comedy - Everytime I check this it's either The nanny, fresh prince, friends or seinfeld....and same episodes from last month.

Sports - almost always football.

It's f'n rubbish!

You're right, it is mainly rubbish. If it wasn't for John Stewart, The Thirsty Traveller, Ching's Kitchen and The Simpsons I probably wouldn't bother...

the only stuff I watch is Coronations Street, Emmerdale, Eastenders and BBC Prime if I haven't got anything on download. It's good for the kids channels though.

They got the Ashes and Lions tours, so that is worth subscription just for that...

Heroes and Lost the only half decent programmes...

I agree....that's why we don't even have television connected.

does anyone else receive Showtime through Du ?

I receive mine through Du, and the on screen interaction is pretty crap, the remote control basically just changes channels

Was at a friends house in Arabian Ranches yesterday and they have the same package but have a Sky Plus type TV guide on screen, which looks much more up-to-date than mine....

When I called Du to up grade mine, they said the version i have is all that is available in the Marina ??

Anyone else in the Marina have the same version as I have or the more up-to-date version ?

Showtime via Du in the Marina use IP-TV to transmit the TV signal and supply a Motorola VIP 1510 STB (Set Top Box).

The problem is, the video Output of this box is the basic RCA or Composite output (Yellow, Red, White) and this is quite a poor signal for a Plasma /LCD TV.

Does anyone else have an IP-TV Set Top Box with higher quality Video output (like Component - Ycr, etc or HDMI)...

I have researched on Motorlas site and apparently they do manufacture better STB. One of them is the VIP 1550 (with Component output).

- Does Du Supply better STB for IPTV ?
- If not, are there IPTV STB available to buy in Dubai, with higher quality video output?

You're replying to your own post, with a post that requires a Masters in Quantum Physics to understand??

And you support West Ham??
