You may have experienced occasions where you GOtv decoder TV display suddenly becomes dark and would not brighten up unless you press any button on your GOtv decoder remote control. A lot of GOtv users contacted My DigiTech Media to complain of this occurrences.

Many thought that their GOtv decoder has damaged. The truth however is that this sudden darkening of the TV screen when watching your GOtv is a serious embarrassment to every GOtv viewer. The good news is that only few punches on your remote control will return your GOtv decoder completely resolved.


The sudden darkening of your TV Screen when viewing your GOtv shows that there is an unread mail message sent to your GOtv decoder account. This mail message is indicated on the TV screen as an envelop sign on the 
top-flight corner of the TV screen.

Until the mail message envelop is removed - whether read or unread, the GOtv decoder will continue to darken your TV screen at intervals. Even when you press any button on the remote control, it only brightens the TV screen for a while and goes dark again after a while.

Therefore, it is necessary to always read and clear your messages received by your GOtv decoder or account.


Clearing the stubborn envelop sign which appears on the top-flight corner of your GOtv decoder TV screen is very simple. The GOtv / TV screen interphase is user friendly. This implies that the directives are usually displayed on the TV screen which helps even a newbie to browse through with the remote control without any major challenges. 

But basically, this is how to clear the envelop sign on the TV screen which causes your GOtv to go dark when viewing it.

...On the Remote control, press MENU

...Scroll .down to MAIL MESSAGES and press OK

...As the message inbox opens, you can begin to delete the messages one after another by pressing the RIGHT BUTTON of the 4corner navigational buttons.

...Continue this until the last of the messages had disappeared.

The envelop automatically disappears the moment the last message wipes out. Once you do this, congratulations! Your GOtv will Bollinger darken when viewing your GOtv channels on your TV. 

This method of deleting messages to clear the envelop sign that causes your GOtv decoder to darken is similar to the way to delete messages and envelops on TV screens of the DStv.

The best way to keep your device safe and secure

Finally, mobile technology giants have advised users of mobile phones, tablets, computers and indeed all forms of internet electronic devices are best kept safe and secure from viruses and other forms of malicious threats by regularly updating their applications and/or device softwares and/or operating systems. This revelation came after a series of unfortunate slow down of some models of Apple i-phones as a result of an application released which was programmed to improve battery life of those devices.
Although Apple has apologized for not advising customers on i-phone models with aging batteries, the mobile technology giant affirmed that it is absolutely necessary to always update your device's software as it is the only way to keep it functioning at optimum capacity as well as safe from any form of malicious threat.

However as the world has become a global village due to a busy internet and cyber space traffic, a lot of malicious sources of mobile or device utility softwares, apps and operating systems softwares have emerged. These are primary sources whereby viruses and cyber worms are released into the cyber space. Some of these cyber security threats are so powerful that they are able to tear down the firewalls of many devices meant to keep the latter safe from internet and cyber attacks.

You cannot say that you are completely free from viruses irrespective of how efficient and up to date your device antivirus may be. you may have downloaded or recieved files from other sources which you can not vouche for their security certificates. Hackers who penetrate other devices either via the internet, cyber space, Wifi, wire connections etc always look for the weakest point in a system software buil-up.

Not using the latest versions of your phone or device softwares provide a veritable vulnerable area for malicious attacks by hackers or cyber terrorists. The primary essence of developing newer versions of softwares or apps is to correct any anomaly observed in an earlier released software version. With the release of any new version, software companies would expect all users of their softwares or devices to upgrade immediately in order to enjoy the gains of the improvementsw made in the latest software versions.

Therefore whether you are using a mobile phone, tablet, laptop, desktop computer, decoders, or any devices which has a software updating feature, always ensure you try your best to keep your devices up to date. More important is to always download newer softwares or latest versions or upgrades from the recommended sources.

However, never have we seen a car that reads the mind of the driver and before the driver does anything, the car has already done it. The mind-reading car from Nissan has the ability to know what you are thinking and starts doing it before the driver physically applies it.

This latest project from Nissan will take the hi-tech automobile industry by storm as no other automobile giant has been able to match this technological feat.

Already, there has been a prototype being test-run and so far it has been excellent. However, work is stilkl in progress. Thanks to the Nissan Automobile giant. The pictures below explains further...

This post was not designed to advertise any mobile phone brand or model rather to give you the secrets of making the best choice that suits your pleasure and adventure needs thisa Christmas and beyond. You may agree with me that with advancements in mobile and cell phone technology, there is need to upgrade with the times or at least get the best out of your already-purchased cell phones.
Christmas is a season that comes with adventures, travels, giftings and sharings, pleasuring ventures and in these quick events, you would not want to mix out even for a second. I guess you would want to capture every bit of your experience this Xmas season and also make the best use of your captured memories. In this post, I shall roll out the advancements in cell phone properties, new features in mobile phones, specifications currently trending in the mobile or cell phone industry to enable you have the best of a digital Christmas. 

When you want to buy an appropriate cell or mobile phone for great pleasure and adventure this Christmas, what specifications do you desire?


The sharpness of your cell phone's camera is graded in pixells. The higher the camera pixells, the better the clarity or quality of your camera snapshots and videos. Currently, cellphones and mobile phones are fixed High Definition HD cameras. A mobile phone of 10 megapixell 10MP will be far better than a camera of 9MP or less. Therefore your phone's camera is defined by its megapixell level.

Best mobile phone features


The phone is a computer, working on the basic principle of the Random Access Memory RAM as the activity centre of the phone. All your applications currently in use at any time are actively being processed by the RAM. With a higher RAM size, the more your phone can handle multiple tasks without hanging or crashing. The RAM is the power house of the mobile phone. Many recent phones now come with RAM sizes or 1 Gigabyte 1GB and above. Remember that if you must take selfies, share on socials, chat and browse the internet, make phone calls and send SMSs, etc all at the same time, you neede a phone with a big RAM size - at least 1GB and above would not be a bas idea.


This is the reservoir or storage centre of your phone. This is where all your pictures, videos, applications, documents and files, messages, history are all stored. They lie here waiting for call-up to the RAM before they could be utilised. The Hard Disk or Memory of your phone is important because it defines how much of data you can carry with you anytime. However recent phones are embracing very large memory sizes on most phone brands.


The battery capacity or strenght is measured in milliampere per hour mAh. Of course, a higher mAh gives you a longer lasting battery. Therefore always enquire on the capacity of your desired phone's battery before you purchase. A 4,000mAh battery wouldn't be a bad idea for this Christmas.


Currently the world has gone from the GPRS to the EDGE to the LTE and to the Gs. Now most mobile communication technology giants are producing devices with 7G and above capabilities. Additionally, these higher grade network carriers can comfortably absorb the lower networks just incase they are to be used in areas with such poor network signal coverage. a mobile phone with 5G, 4G, 3G would not really be a bad idea for places like Nigeria and other African countries.


These days where we have most devices running on android, many have actually forgotten that there are other operating systems that offer as much gains as android. We have the iPhones apple and the Microsoft windows. Although Nokia has shifted operations to android, one remarkable property of the Windows is that they are not susceptible to VIRUS attack. They are secure especially from the Windows 10 versions and above. This is because of an in-built mobile security feature known as the Defender. 

Thus, battery capacity, camera pixell, RAM, internal memory, browsing network carrier capacity and indeed the physical design, colour, brand name as well as price are also some factors you may wish to consider in deciding the best phone for your Christmas this season. Do you agree with me?
