If you like this hobby , than yes it is worth it . You will need a USBBDA cable for starter's. Go to the 4DTV thread on THE MAP MASTER RESTORATION PROJECT . all the info is there in that thread. P.s. You can also buy a commercial Dsr 4410 DC2 receiver for about the same price that you will pay just for the cable. The choice is up to you !

yes ebay , there going for 50.00 to 100.00. Do not buy a espn only unit. The down side of these units is that they do not come with a remote control. The up side is you dont need maps installed on a commercial receiver . A Dsr 4410 can only do DVB-S. If your willing to fork out more money than you should look for a Dsr unit that can do DVB-S2 8psk (HD) like a dsr 6000 or 6050 like i have. Good luck!

@Dc2tracker

So using the DSR-4410 with no control you just simply tune in and the channels come in that are in Free mode?  No need to adjust anything on the front panel?

Sounds interesting to get one cheap of ebay to give it a try.

And the better models that can do DVB-S2 HD (DSR-6000/6050) look to be to high for me to Purchase.

I have an old 4DTV DSR-920 but the maps are old and dont have the proper cable to update them myself. Shipping the unit to someone its costly do to its weight.

So I like the idea about the 4410 that don't need maps updated.

Yes you tune with the front panel,they do not come with a remote. There is a total of 5 buttons on the front panel. Once you have tuned in a transponder (mux) you just simply channel up or down the list. Basically you will have to make your own map's on paper for each satellite with the transponder or frequencey numbers. If your in DC2 auto mode it will find the Symbol Rate & FEC automatically but not the frequency.

Some may wish to first go and read the operators manual for these commercial receivers. While 5 buttons may sound simple they do have a learning curve to master tuning any of these receivers. These are "pro grade" machines and one needs to learn the skills to use them with low stress.

exactly why I asked, probably not for me either. DCII don't offer much (occasional free modes here and there) to invest time and money doing so. Thanks for the information guys

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
