Just wondering if I can slave a nfusion phoenix fta to my 4dtv 922 motorola.
my c-band provider said a lot of people are doing this and since a buddie gave me his fta I was thinking of trying it but not sure if this specific one works with 4dtv 922.......

it shouldn't matter

The 4d should slave without issues. I will leave it for the experts here but I see no reasons why it wouldn't slave with an Nfusion. Just make sure you connect it correctly and use DC blocks if necessary. Several good diagrams can be found when researching on how to correctly make your connections.

I have a Uniden Supra and my FTA receiver slaved and haven't had any issues as of late.

you need a power pass (one side only) splitter hook up the 4dtv to the power pass side and the fta unit to the other port

thanks Lak7 , seems like a easy enough setup , as for the fta receiver do you have to set it up for each satellite you go on, is there any info on that part or how you guys here do it, did a search but no write up on this ....thanks so much

Yes. For each Sat you want to use, you need to enter the LNB and Switch info.
Are you using a Servo Controlled Feed Horn or Voltage Controlled LNBF?

If it's servo controlled, you will have to use the 4DTV to control polarity, flip between Odd / Even channels.

In Canada the only place that I know of that has the right splitters is rps RPS Satellite most places around me don't even know what a slave kit is...

You could also set the FTA Receiver's LNB Power to Off and use a High Freq Splitter that has power passing on both sides. Just make sure you set all the Sat's that way.

Love this thread. Continuing on....

What would one do (hookup wise) if one has an original Birdview "High block" dual LNB? (C-band only) Voltage to these as I recall is supplied on the horizontal side, but both sides are active at all times obviously.

Wasn't there a dual input FTA recently introduced on the market that could take two separate inputs, also? If so, could that be ideal for a 922 4dtv and FTA combination with FTA as slave?
