Yes pretty much. Read somewhere not to use a particularly large capacity USB drive, but that was the only one I could get to work (64GB). The 500 and 2GB ones did not, or they were faulty, or weren't recognized by the unit.So my instructions above for loading it worked out ok for you?
I would love to see some of those scan reports uploaded for the popular KU satellites. I know EB posted one for the 105 bird on another forum and it was a wealth of information about all the thousands of radio feeds at that location. Maybe eventually if enough people with "fixed" dishes would work together it could be possible to update each satellite at a certain time each day (like the DirecTV data project or James Long's Uplink Report" for Dish).The service menu reports the number of TV / Radio services found, total scan time and if you wish, saves a transponder and a service log file on an external USB drive! Under 2 minute hardware blindscan on KU 97w! This is great for comparing and sharing. Side note: I could see how these reports could be contributed to an online database to create an incredible, accurate real-time, hobbyist generated satellite service list. Anyone?
Sounds like someone would need to write code for a plugin that would send the XML file from the /temp folder in the box to said hosted database every time a blindscan is completed - thus eliminating the need of a USB stick.Simple XML files, so all we need is a hosted database, display code and moderators. Would be great if the data could also be used for registered users to build custom satellite/transponder/service lists similar to satellites-xml.org.
I think you've got the right idea, my friend. Just need the server space and someone good at coding.Sounds like someone would need to write code for a plugin that would send the XML file from the /temp folder in the box to said hosted database every time a blindscan is completed - thus eliminating the need of a USB stick.
