Too many subscribers who own the DStv dual view decoders do not really bother to set up their decoders to show two different TV channels as supposed. There are too many reasons which may include lack of technical know-how, financial constraint to pay for the dual channel service etc. Surprisingly, findings have shown that many subscribers actually pay for the dual TV channel service for their dual view DStv decoders but fail to get the value for their money due to one or more of the reasons listed above. However, this post will explain how to set up your DStv dual view decoder with TV Link, to show the two different TV channels at the same time.
This topic became necessary due to popular inquiries from our teeming cable and satellite TV subscribers who own DStv dual view decoders but do not know how to activate the dual Tv channel services. By the time you finish reading this post however, you would have known how to beat this challenge.

How to Set up the DStv Dual View Using a TV-Link

A TV-Link is a device which provides your DStv dual view decoder with the much needed output source to display its secondary channels or simply called the TV 2 channels. Before you start connecting your TV Link device, ensure that you have activated the dual view channel service for your decoder and DStv account by paying for it at any DStv office. Remember that the payment for the dual view can only be effected alongside payment for the normal subscription for your account.

After payment and account reconnection, connect your DStv Dual View decoder to the TV Link as described in the diagram. The LED light glows steadily which indicates that the TV Link is correctly connected. One important parameter to confirm from the DStv Dual View decoder settings is the TV Link / RF extension setting. this settings can be found when you explore the MENU of the decoder, ADVANCED OPTION and then to TV Link set up or the RF Extension setup. Once this setting is activated from the SETTINGS platform, a proper connection as described above will give you the desired double view result.
