Hathway Set Top Box


Hi,
My cable operator does not have stock of Hatway Set top box and doesnt expect it for another couple of months.
Is is possible to buy a Set top box from SP Road or anyplace and use it to view Hathway digital channels using my cable connection or can i do that only with the cable operator provided box?
Please advice.

do you have the card. its like a credit card that slips inside the set top box. without it, no point.

check on sp road, you might find it there. ask your cable guy for the model number atleast. I know its humax. you can also search for used ones.

My cable operator also told me the same thing. I escalated it to their management and threatened to disconnect and it worked. They gave a me STB next day. You can try it out before looking out for third party STB.

I believe they are having issues with stb availability for past few months. Make sure they dont give you a used one or an older model. there are a few models of hathway stbs, check on web.

threatening to change always works, they will find one for you.
whenever hathway doesnt give some channels (usually sports channels during good sporting events), I cut money from the monthly bill at 50/- per missing channel, I basically get cable for 5 sports channels, if he cant provide those, cut money. if he cribs and wants more money, I tell him to take his dubba and get out, that usually calms him down.

Re: Hathway Set Top Box

Pls call Hathway customer care directly and check.

I faced similar situation with Fastway in Chandigarh.
The Cable operator insisted that Fastway is not supplying them with STBs.
When I called up Fastway - it turned out that the cable operators have to submit certain documents --- Address Proof + CAF to Fastway for every customer provided with STB.

Since the Cable Operator has not submitted the same for existing customers, Fastway was refusing new STBs to that cable operator.

Re: Hathway Set Top Box

Hi All,

I stay in Bangalore Whitefield Area and My cable operator always says that the Setup Box is out of stock. The Normal cable is not so good and I dont have an option of changing the cable Operator as well as each area is allocated to one cable operator.

Can I get my own Setup box and ask my operator to Install it.?
Please suggest.

OT but after going through various threads on this I thought that for all providers, the STB digital signal was highly compressed and low bandwidth hence PQ not as good as the older type of signal...?

Agree with you on this
In mumbai we have a local operator named Seven Star.
With the normal cable the colors were more vibrant and picture was sharp. With the STB installed in some channels the picture is very bad (i can literally see pixels even on a CRT) and colors are washed

even I had the same problem, change your video cable, you must be using those junk free cables that come with various equipments. get a 100/- mx composite video cable and see your colors getting transformed.
