  1. I get a message to update software on my STB. Instruction says switch off using remote and an update screen will appear. This is not happening. when I switch the STB back on, I only get the Promo channel and nothing else…

  2. This decoder is can no longer be supported in term terms of software upgrades that are required. To enjoy uninterrupted viewing, ongoing technical support, PVR compatibility and access to the world of streaming through open view connect you need to purchase the latest open view decoder from a leading retailer.

  6. I have the OLDER or one of the first edition of OVHD Decoders made or sold by ELLIES Known as the – MODEL: S1 of which is just in storage for quite a while. Can these ones be upgraded or altered with the new software? These where the decoders that still had the RF in and out plus the normal RCA connections and HDMI Connections with what looks like a card function for the future

  7. My decoder only shows the green light but nothing else happens. Where can I have it repaired.

  8. My decoder is upgrading none stop please help I want to watch RSA match.

  9. So the people who purchased the very stb loses their money because Open View upgraded the software and now they want us to purchase a NEW stb. Why not let the people who has these older stb’s return the stb for a discount on the purchase of the new stb? We all just wasted our money now that you have made the old stb’s null and void.

    @admin you are useless! Getting paid to refer people to an Open View installer… Is that all the advice you can offer? I’m sure you will delete my comment to make sure the people don’t realize just how useless you really are.

    Open View, you guys suck!

    Then I will rather use that money you want us to pay for a new stb and pay for 3 months of subscription to Netflix. At least I know they won’t leave me hanging like Open View. 🖕

    People! Don’t waste your money and time by purchasing an OVHD.
