It turns out my tdt is at 1920. Not sure what to do now. I at least want to use the 4dtv to drive the dish for fta receiver. At this point, there is virtually nothing out there of any value to me on 4dtv, so I guess I have nothing to loose by doing a master reset to clear the tdt and then programming in the X4 channel maps, assuming I can after a master reset. But, I don't want to loose the ability to use the 922 to steer my dish. What will happen if I do a master reset?
Yes, I actually did same testing back in Sept-Oct of last year and backed up files, each time I downloaded back to IRD I obtained different results. I did MR to wipe all maps, and downloaded backup files, I lost auth and sat tiles, everything went back to stock. Time did stay correct on one test however.I just read on the "other" forum that a member has been able to back up the maps and other data on one 922 and make a clone of that 922 to another. He used a BDM cable and software from usbjtag.com. Has anyone here heard of that?
Now....going by memory I think I remember....
The BDM cables that work with 4PLAY are P.E. micro
P&E Microcomputer Systems - CABLE_16/32 - CPU16/3xx BDM Interface (5V, Parallel Port) - 68HC16, CPU3xx, Interface Hardware/Cable
P&E Microcomputer Systems - CABLE_16/32LV - CPU16/3xx Low-Voltage BDM Interface (3.3V, Parallel Port) - 68HC16, CPU3xx, Interface Hardware/Cable
Be carefull, as some cables are 3.3V and others 5V. I believe the 4DTV is a 5V box, but other models of IRD's are 3.3V (i.e. 401)
...He used a BDM cable and software from usbjtag.com. Has anyone here heard of that?...
Cool, let us know how it works cuz that's one I can afford.
don't most usb devices end up converting or emulating com ports? I'v seen this on 2 usb programing cable I have..
one is a OBD2 car Scanner (that technology was from 96)
another one is my usb to Radio shack scanner programming cable
Both of these usb devices get assigned a com port in the device manager
Just a thought
The software doesn't appear to be as "friendly" as 4play. There is no simple GUI where you upload the channel maps, edit and download to the box. This is more like, you take a DSR405 script and try to figure out how to modify it for 920/922 and upload the memory, try to figure out what the hell you can do with it, and possibly download it to the box. Seriously. There is presently no preconfigured scripts for 4dtv. It would be beneficial for a simple gui such as 4play to use with this hardware. BTW, when you buy usbbdm hardware you should receive the activation via email. You will also need usb cable (not included) printer type usb cable with one flat end and a square connector on the other.
