Imagine a situation where you have an interesting show to watch on Soundcity and every member of your house wants to watch the usual Africa Magic. Perhaps, you don’t want people changing the dstv channel here and there with the remote control. Here’s a little trick i use and it really works for me because it will make them drop the remote control with disappointment after pressing several times and the channel fails to change.
NB: This trick will make your decoder unable to receive commands from the remote control until you return it to it’s default mode.
- Look for the ‘SHIFT’ key on your dstv remote control, Press it once (it blinks) followed by the ‘EXIT’ button. This will quickly deactivate that remote control making it unable to change channel, increase the volume or any other function.
TO ACTIVATE THE REMOTE AGAIN
- Re-Activating the remote is almost the same but with only a slight differenc; in this step Press the SHIFT’ button again, followed by the button with this ‘I’ symbol (information symbol) That’s it
Apart from using this trick to control access to your decoder, you can also use this trick to control the viewing of channels with adult contents (i.e For Parental control). Just choose a channel that’s suitable for family viewing and apply the trick…. The children will be unable to change from that channel till you Re-activate the remote control.
