Can't believe I can't find any Kind of manual info on this. Most hack sites are gone now or they would have probably had something. Found a email for Captain receivers but, no surprise I guess, have not got a reply back.
Seems like a nice working receiver, bit week in sensitivity but nice and clear. If only I could find how to add satellites and edit satellite names. Can't see anywhere in the menus where it can be done. Has to be though.
Was going to try Channelmaster and a cable but it looks like Channelmaster may not work with it (not listed in it's menu's anyway).
Have you looked everywhere? lol In the menus, I mean. I had a viewsat, and the add-satellite thing was hidden under the Transponder scan menu, I think. Some of these things you really have to look for. Or maybe there is a way to rename and existing satellite, change it's orbital location also...if necessary for motor control.
gmd63 Took a look thru my 8000 manual, and there is nothing in it for adding sats, or tp's, so I won't bother looking for the cd that came with it. I did add a sat, and some tp's last fall, and it was a pain in the ass to work with, but I got it done after a lot of playing around.
I use the Captain 8000 (Converted Neusat 9000) as a slave to a coolsat 5000. Use it to pick up 2:0 hd feeds that the Coolsat can't pick up. No 2:2 though! I use the 2 user sats, one for ku other for c band. I will comment more if requested, as not much info on this receiver.
