Hi All,
Has any company etc ever tried customizing the 922 firmware to improve menus etc?

If not, is there any chance Motorola would license the software to someone -- since they are kinda distancing themselves from the technology anyway?

Things I'd like to see:
-Mapped generics in my IPG for quick selection etc.
-Auto-skew that actually does something
-Broader sweep in the "optimize satellite" so I can find birds that drift etc. without having to manually slew the dish.

I would like to see better menus also. The FTA receivers seem to allow more custom input. Good luck with the quest.

Unfortunately for us...Motorola could care less about the 4DTV! Apparently the patent that made them make the guide inaccurate, is expired, and they will not even fix that!!! Interface is about the same as the 920 from the late 80's!!!:mad:

I presume you are aware they can do a flash from a Satellite....that's what they used to do before Pizza Pan stuff was around!

BTW: auto position and skew was fine for analog, but not with digital or thosE pesky transponders that carry HBO, Max on G1!.......now I only use them to get close...then bump and nudge (MANUALLY) each slowly using a meter....the PQ meter in the 4dtv is just fine though!

Regards
jeff
