Out there somewhere
After several days and inputting over 8,000 lines of code data
I was able to locate most of the guide data available.
There is still much more to do but this gives you an idea..,

Some new maps in testing phase and being offered to those who have already put in the new maps and have the new sat tiles.

If you have not done this then don't ask as the file will not do anyone else any good the way it is made up right now. Remember this is part of the testing phase.....

What it does....

1) Added guide info to many G7 channels

2) Added guide info to all the Spanish channels on S-3

3) Added TV guide channels to A2 * not real DC2 channels just to see what is actually on TV

4) Added TV guide channels to W7 & W8 * Not real DC2 channels just to use to see what is playing on TV

5) Added All the HBO and Cinemax guide channels to W5, G1 sat tiles

6) Added all but 1 Showtime channels to W5, C3, C4

7) Added Sports channels to W5 and some on G7

8) Added guide info for ABC, CBS & NBC on W5 *again for info only.

The time taken for find the guide data was immense and required over 8000 lines of entering code data.
as an example... in the text file....
015-G7,00114,0,0,0,0,02552
the 02552 is JCTV on G7 sat tile.
So you can begin to see the possibility of numbers it takes to input just to find one channel!


some of the channels listed below are currently placed on A2, W7 & W8 and W5 channels 1 thru 24.

YOU TOO

If I know where the actual channels are located in DC2 then they have been placed on the proper sat tiles and DC2 channel like You TOO, JCTV, Church on G7
The HBO's, Showtimes, Cinemax, have been placed on G1, C3 & C4 where the actual DC2 channel is at.

All but 3 or 4 channels that are on W5 now have the correct guide data associated with those channels.

here is a SMALL sampling of what is in the maps so far...
I said SMALL since the actual photo's taken were over 36 megs in space....

IMG 0851

IMG 0850

IMG 0868

I have heard reports some other person was trying to figure out a way to charge people for all this info but since this is a hobby and those DIY'ers out there can now do it for FREE!

Out there somewhere
The first post was so long I needed to break it off just to see what I was saying... :)

If anyone wants to test out the new mappings the way they are....

You need to follow the following instructions:

Remember this is still so new and in the testing phase....
Even ATS is putting it into their personal receivers this weekend to test out.

1) You MUST have the NEW Maps already in your receivers.
if you do not then please don't even ask....

2) You will need to send me your nvram and make sure you note where you are taking it out from.
example... if your on X4-210 then you need to let me know you took it out while on that channel in the email.

3) You will need to put in your email the model number... 920 or 922 only at this time are being done.
and your unit ID number from .. options>6.5 line A.


When I send it back you will be ready to jtag it back into your receiver from the same place you took if out of.

Very simple.

The reason I am asking it this way is so that...
1) all your settings will remain just as you have them currently.
I am doing this in a way that only the guide is being put in for you on the channels I have already placed on a master list.
That list is not yet being released until I decide where many extra guide channels should go that are not on actual DC2 channels.
2) I no longer have to use the computer to see what is on TV on the channels I currently use since all that is needed is to press the guide button on my 4DTV receiver.

If you do not have the guide bit turned on please do not ask for this.

I would like feedback on where to place the finished guide channels that are not in DC2 up there.

Out there somewhere
If anyone is interested in testing this out and you meet the requirements.... then

post a message in this thread and I will pm you with the email details on where to send your nvram.

If you decide to do it and send the nvram without your unit id and receiver model number
in the body of your email
....

I will NOT redo the nvram.

It is important as the files are made up at this time for the different 4d models.

Out there somewhere
Below are the numbers corresponding to each name for guide info that can be put into the 4DTV maps.
When looking at the text file of the maps the area it goes to is here: (highlighted in red).

003-G4,00001,0,1,1,0,06074,001,00000,0,80,H,1430000,0,1,1,0,1,6.20,6.80,NTSC,10,00

This is a 5 digit number and one must be careful to make sure the number goes in the text file correctly.

The example shown above is from sat tile G4 transponder 1

Out there somewhere
Thought I give any enterprising people out there an bit of how to if they want to try locating any more guide info.

I went from 00001 to 09999 in the code on my maps to locate all the above so anything over 10000 is still not completed.
Here is an example how I did it.
I made several different sets of maps.
Started out from 00001 to 01000
Next one went from 01001 to 02000
Next one went from 02001 to 03000 and so on up to 09999.
Here is what G4 looked like on the 05000 set of maps.
You have to change this set of numbers I put in bold on the maps.

003-G4,00001,0,1,1,0,05001,001,00000,0,80,H,1430000,0,1,1,0,1,6.20,6.80,NTSC,10,003

So you can see the type of work involved to get this far.
Once done you build a new bin and send it to your receiver and (you must have the guide bit turned on), wait for any guide info to load and see what you have.
Then you see guide info appear on say G4/03 you look in the text file to see what numbers you had in G4-03 and write them down and what the guide showed as info./program.

since everything under 09999 was already done you would want to start at:
10000 and go up.

Out there somewhere
Some people may have more than one 4d receiver.
If you do you need to remember one important thing.
Always use your nvram from the receiver it came out of when sending it back to the 4d.
Now it does not matter what you name it as long as the ".bin"
extension is on it but always use the one from your receiver so you do not compromise
your receiver.


Never try putting a 920/921 bin into a 922 receiver and if you have done a firmware
downgrade from EC to A4 you must use the nvram from the A4 firmware as when you
try putting the one from the EC firmware back in, the areas the info goes to will not be in the proper place.
So remember if you downgrade a 922 from EC to A4 pull out a new bin from the A4 firmware.
Then use this as your master copy for a 922 with the A4 firmware.

A good way to remember which nvram is which is to name it part of your unit id number.
You don't have to use the entire unit id just the last set of 4 digit numbers/letters will be unique enough to remember which is which.

I have 7 different 4d receivers here and I use this method which keeps them all separate and the ability to locate them again takes just a second.

I thought I would point this out since some have asked this question a couple of times now .
