    Hi, Just took a voltage measurement of the battery in my '410. It reads 3.198 v. Is this good for a while yet, or does this measurement indicate a failure in the foreseeable future ?

    Help keep C band subscription alive

    I reluctantly canceled my SRL sub last night after 4 months. I set up a system that is part FTA for the PR nets and 4DTV for the other channels.

    This is sad

    DishmanDan, Basically, I removed the oven rack type reflectors and the driven element (where the coax attaches) from the antenna boom. I then measured the distance from the reflector to the driven element and mounted them on a new piece of tubing. I am in Norwich, about 65 miles from Syracuse...

    This is sad

    Ok, I couldn't resist. I drug up an old not so true Kaultronics perforated dish I had lying down in the back yard staged with other stuff for fall cleanup. I found a piece of square aluminum tubing from an old tv antenna, and made a modified 91 xg. This consisted the reflector and DE. I then...

    DSR 410 Battery Replacement.

    I need to replace the battery in my newly acquired 910. I can find no procedure on Sat Guys . The 922 has a cylindrical battery, and the 910 has a button cell, so the procedure for the 922 will not work. Any ideas?

    Voltage Polarity Switch.

    Hi Gabs, Long time.... I found a source from your suggestions, (maybe I was typing wrong) thanks. I have several of the new LNBs, but I'm installing a W5 fixed system and I'm not sure that the new LNBs will work with a DSR 910. Correct me if I'm wrong.
