    GI DSR-410DS Battery

    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 ?

    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?

    How to program W5 into DSR 905

    Can some one run me through how to program W5 into my DSR 905. I've completed my dish install (7.5 ft Winegard) and am ALMOST certain it's on W5. While I can't find how to do a 905, there are all kinds of help topics if you own a DSR 910 or 920. I tried them, but the 905's menu system is...

    Hi Folks, Went for a walk around the back yard thru 18' of snow to do a site survey. I can only get 105w thru a large (10 year ) slot in the trees. If I expend the effort to erect the 7.5 ft Echostar, can I park it on 105w and get programming and re-hits for my DSR-905? The 10 ft Unimesh...

    H/H mount

    FYI While out on a road test this morning, passed a 10' mesh with an H/H mount. Read the phone # at 70 mph and called it when I returned to the shop... It's mine for 50 bucks. The guy would not part with it for free....I didn't get close enough to it to see the brand of the mount. More as it...

    Hi Guys, I posted several weeks back that I now own a DSR-905. I now have another (7.5 ft.) dish to install. Upon installation, I will be limited to 105 and west to 137 or so due to trees and terrain. Is it worth the work ? Will it work. I want to subscribe using NPS or Skyvision... Also...

    Yet Another free.........

    Picked up a 7.5 foot Echostar mesh over the weekend. Came with hornets, a single feed horn with polarotor, and a VonWeise actuator. The VonWeise is now on my 10 foot Unimesh and works great. I intend to plant the 7.5 on 105w in the spring so I can sub my DSR 905.

    Question about actuator.

    Hi, Folks.... I have what I believe is a Thompson Saginaw actuator (very heavy duty!) I'd like to use, but it has a potentiometer instead of a pulse generator feedback system. This will not work with my VboxV. Any way to convert this unit to a pulse type ? Some sort of universal kit maybe? This...

    Finally got the 10 foot Unimesh on the pole last night with the help of some of the guys at my Ultralight flyers meeting. Now all I have to do is get it aligned. I got my new VboxV also and found it's a neat piece of equipment: change sats and the dish moves to the selected sat!

    Traveling with DirecTv

    Hey Folks, Several months ago I asked if it were possible to use a DTV Hd receiver with a single LNB to get standard tv. The answer was yes. I borrowed an old 18" single LNB Dishnet dish and went out with the trailer . It worked great. My next question is can I use the Dishnet D/P twin LNB...
