    Believer's Voice of Victory

    I found mention in one post that Glorystar had added BVOVN or BVOV to the list. I can not find it. Is it somewhere ? For some reason I have not been able to get a new update on my microHD for channels, or software/firmware. I have been off for about 2 years. Thanks POP

    Six foot mesh dish --DAMAGED

    Sorry, Anole, no pictures, but I spooked a doe with a fawn and the doe jumped through my 6 foot mesh dish, taking out two panels. Repairable I think.. Will have to wait. It was not the wind this time. I guess the dish was not visible! I was more worried about the doe than my dish, in fact I...

    GEOSATpro Strange idea -- Feature on boot

    Might be difficult to do with no buttons...... Some way to lock a "factory reboot" into memory that would cause a boot from USB which would restore the latest working firmware (.abs file) from a usb stick. Might be possible to have the boot sequence check the usb for the boot file and if that...

    GEOSATpro Feature -- Glorystar Program list only dbs file?

    Since the Glorystar list exists for the other Geosat products, And since I have NOT had success with the editor programs (my problem - others can do it) could someone who knows how, make a Glorystar db for the microHD. That would be one less variable to deal with re: my recording challenges and...
