Maps should be on GB-24, G5 12, G1-3, someone should find them all and post them on a sticky, I think you can get them off c4 and c3 as well.

Maps are found on any premium channel and also the W5 channels. Guide is on G1-3 only.

Are you sure the maps are on w5? From what I know only the digital activation can be done there but I have not heard of the maps being available on that sat.

Maps are available on a few transponders across the arc, digital authorization and activation can be done on these transponders as well.

For a digital activation there are more transponders available for this, though maps are not in the data stream, I also do not think a new 4dtv could be authorized for digital on these transponders.

Yes W5 has two sets of maps one for the 410 and the other for the 4DTV's.

yes interesting info. I always used the Starz mux on G5 to get the maps but if W5 will get them too that would be great :)

ok i have set up the all american pack to test it

cnn and others off G3 like cnn, have horrid pq while the channels off c3, like TLC have great pq?

okay the dsr 905 has +5vp which is +5 volts on my drake, ok, skew out is pulse on my drake, ok got that hooked up, grnd to grnd

but the 905 wont change poloarity! if i hook the 3 wires back up to my drake, can change polarity

so,

1. Does the analog ird have to be hooked up to the 905?
2. which one goes outside? the top 4 terminals or the bottom 4?

There is an option in the menu to adjust the skew...I **think** its either right arrow or left arrow if I remember right. I stumbled upon it once :)

I dont have a password setup on mine

the skew wires will control the polarity ;)
But then again I use a voltage switched LNB so I dont have to worry about that

This is because the channels on C3 are the masters. :rant:The NPS G3 re-ups are the worst as 4DTV goes. The sad part about that is NPS could do something about it (and keep saying they will) but nothing materializes. As usual NPS is probably blowing smoke just like with IPTV and other things before. Not fixing the G3 problem turns off quite a few, especially us with HDTV's. C band was always praised for it fantastic picture quality and there really giving it a bad name with the garbage there dishing out. Maybe NPS will realize someday when the majority of us give up on there bitstarved mess and leave them. It may be too late for them to do anything by then. :(

now if i remember right, the hd-200 will upconvert the sd channels to hd?

NO that is not true. The HDD-200 will decode the HD channels and upscale the standard def to a higher resolution to work with your HDTV. Although from what I hear the scaler sucks in the HDD-200. Your better off leting your HDTV do the scaling. My Sharp AQUOS takes the 922's S 480i video output, upconverts and scales to my 1080p native resolution. I works and looks very good especially on the master feed's.

well i plan on getting a sharp notevision front projector, that does 1080i thhrough vga, if i take video to vga upscaler, then the upscaler will take the vid from the 905 and upscale it from 480i to 1280X1024

then the video should be hi res, right?
