Slaving a DVB Receiver to a DSR922 ...
Seeing all the DVB channels is kind of making me think about adding a DVB receiver.
I gather that it is possible to "slave" a DVB receiver to the DSR922, but not sure how to proceed:
1) What do you recomend for a DVB receiver in this configuration? What are the tradeoffs, cost, features (HD?), other stuff?
2) I have a Corotor II+, domestic version (H&V), with pretty good Norsat LNBs, and a 12' dish that is working very well for Ku
Will this give the signal that the DVB receiver need? Or does it want circular polarization?
3) Any links about how to wire this up? Does it just take some suitable bandwidth RF splitters/combiners? Or something more specific?
4) How do you store the DVB sat positioning in the 922? Do you just pick out an unused satellite and use it for something else? Or are the setups for 4DTV and DVB enough the same that dish alignment for 4DTV is the same for the DVB?
Anything else I should think about? I don't yet have HD decoding, but may want to eventually.

Pansat 3500SD? Timers for recording?
Does the 3500 have program info and timers so that I can pre-program it and then record at that time with my TIVO, the way I do with my DSR922?
I know that I could get a Pansat 6000 that has its own PVR (like TIVO), but that's a lot more money, and I don't have a good feel yet for how much of my time I will be wanting to record off of DVB. Right now I spend a lot of my time on FoxNews, CSPAN, TCM, AMC, FMC, SciFi, and USA. Reading through the FTA sats, I see a lot of content, but I don't have a good feel for how hard it would be to find things of interest.
PS: I really appreciate all the good answers and info I am getting here. Cheers!

A little inconvenient but the dedicated dish for FTA does not go up until it gets nice out!!! Luckily my BUD is right on so the FTA stuff comes in great!!
My Viewsat Extreme allows me to rename a sat so I could make the FTA have the same names as the 4dtv...then I would have Lyngsat issues so.....I chose the 1st option
