Can someone please tell me how to translate the 4DTV satellite descriptors (W5, G1, T4, etc.)
into arc positions? I am only familiar with DVB, and this seems to be a new language to me.

I'd like to try out an old DSR905 Sidecar that came with my 10'er, but I have no idea where to point the dish, or which bird to lock on to for testing purposes.

The 905 has not been used for about 2yrs, it still powers up nicely. Must I upgrade the firmware to see anything "ITC"?

Thanks for helping a noob to your area!:eek:

Hey, Thanks a Bunch!

I was lost in confusion until now!

I'm gonna start playing with the 905 soon, but I still have many
spring chores to take care of first!

Thanks again.

Thanks Anole, I scroll past those stickies so often, I seldom slow down to have a close look!

I'm getting a bit more familiar with the subject now, and that makes it easier to find what I'm looking for.

Cheers!
