At present we are back in Townsville after a short 2 week trip out to the bush. We camped beside a river, about 50Km South West of Charters Towers, happily enjoying the solitude and successfully being able to watch all the TV channels with our ProMax.

We then got a warning notice from our daughter, Emmah, in Townsville warning about a deluge of rain coming, we had to move reluctantly.

Ha! it won’t worry us I said and stopped another day, but a near washout from our track concerned me being about 300mm deep. Packing up in pouring rain and mud everywhere, was not fun, and it didn’t stop for 24 hours after we arrived back in Townsville and parked safe. 250mm dropped in 1 day. So much for sunny Far North Queensland.

Regards,

Bernie

Russell S from Perth has just returned from a big trip around Australia with his SatKing ProMax fully automatic satellite TV system. Russell has been down some very rough dirt roads and through the lowest signal areas in Australia, the SatKing ProMax passed with flying colours. See below a quick rundown from Russell about where he traveled:

 

Our travels started in Perth over the Nullarbor Through Sth Aust to Broken Hill.From there over to Willcania then on the dirt up the west road following the Darling River.From there to Bourke then over the border to Cunnamulla. From there east to Brisbane.

After Brissy we travelled to Roma then up towards Emerald.Through to Longreach, Winton and on to Mount Isa.

From Mt Isa we headed to the border at Camoowheel and onto Barkley roadhouse and 3 ways to the Stuart hwy. to head to Alice Springs.

After a stay at Alice we headed to Yulara or Ayres Rock After that we tackled the longest short cut in Australia on the Great Central Road to Laverton in W A.

This road is about 1200 ks in length through the Gibson desert, Len Beddels country. We passed through the communities of Docker River, Warakurna, Warburton, Tjukayirla to Laverton.

SatKing DVBS2-800CA Software Update.

// posted by Admin on Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Mar 15

We have released a new software update for the SatKing DVBS2-800CA, the software update was automatically installed to your VAST receiver in the last week of Feb 2016. If you enter settings-information-loader status you can check the software version, it should now be DVBS2-800CA V126. If your version is still DVBS2-800CA V125 or lower you missed the upgrade and are still running the old version software. You need to select "OTA" upgrade manually in the Settings-Information menu. The software update is easy to update and on takes around 3 minutes to install automatically over the air. The new software has some new updated functions to improve the customer experience, we have increased the updating speed of the EPG, EPG schedules are now stored when power drops out, Aspect key is now a hot key, TV/Radio can now be selected from the menu buttons on the front of the receiver if your remote is lost, added text to the radio screen saver telling you how to exit, page 3 from the signal finding menu has been removed so you jump directly to the detailed signal detection page. Enjoy the upgraded features.
