VISTAR PROCEDURE UPGRADE

VISTAR is an old type of Dream receiver box. Most of the subscribers has given up this box before 2010. Recently I have one customer asking for the upgrade procedure of this box.  I put it here as a archieve. The upgrade signal was long gone, it’s complicated to upgrade this box. Even we manage to do so, the subscription has to be reload, price is RMB2,500.

I offered an easy solution, at a total cost of RMB2,500, I gave him a second hand Homecast box, which looks and works exactly like the new one, and one year subscription reloaded. His dish was hardly working, rusted in many parts. I replaced the dish antenna for free because I happed to get a set from a family who left Shanghai days ago. Good deal, 2500 for a new box, one year, and a new dish installation, not to say the one year free service included.
