It needs to be between 500gb and 2TB, self powered (some will work off usb power but no guarantees if it will work tomorrow).Can any hard drive be connected to the Wally or does it have to be a specific one?
Thanks for the info.It needs to be between 500gb and 2TB, self powered (some will work off usb power but no guarantees if it will work tomorrow).
Myself I use hard drive docks and swap out internal type drives to keep a library of programs, similar types on one HDD.
Can the LNB on the Trav'ler dish be changed?
Can it support an external switch?
The idea I'm playing with is if I connect the DPH42 switch to it, I can use it with the Hopper 3 which the dish alone doesn't support.
Nice graphic. Thanks.The most efficient RV solution for a Hopper 3 is to use a DPH42 switch with a Winegard SK1000 (or an RF Mogul Eagle 3). Then for those times you're parked under trees or need to use the Eastern Arc sats, use a tripod mounted 1000.2 dish with a Hybrid LNBF. With the Hybrid, you only have to run a single coax from the tripod dish to your RV like so:
Thanks for all the info. I wouldn't have known about the compatibility issue with the hybrid LNB otherwise.I can attest the preferred way to prep a Trav'ler for a Hopper 3 is the DPH42 Switch.
You can put a Hybrid LNBF head on the Trav'ler but the seeking logic in the Trav'ler doesn't work well with the Hybrid LNBF.
I believe the issue is the voltage needed by the Hybrid LNBF isn't generated by the Trav'ler logic and the Hopper 3 needs to be disconnected while the satellite seeking is going on.
The DPH42 is only a few bucks more that a Hybrid LNBF and you have a lot of wiring options.
