We recommend that all Xtra View installations be done by our accredited installers.
You can contact us to remove that decoder from your Xtra View set-up.
If you have three decoders linked in Xtra View, the remaining two decoders can stay connected in Xtra View.
We recommend that all Xtra View installations be done by our accredited installers and suggest that you contact one for more information.

When linking your decoders in Xtra View, all decoders get all the channels you’re subscribed to.
