All 9600S are coming without modem, because it is free to air. A 9601
comes with modem (for telefonica, Spain). There is no crucial difference
between v.1.00 and 1.01. On multisatellite-systems all digital-receivers
are a pain..., but we hope to offer some solution in our next drdish@tv
show. Hopefully!
Your idea about controlling the analogue main-receiver with the 9600 is
great. I hope some people with experience read your comment and come out
with some practical ideas.
Some of the PowerVu I tried are working just fine, but I need a little
more time for testing, since we have a pile up on testreceivers for the
next TSI and first comes the work for the daily bread.
For PCR just use the Video-PID. It works.
You are not the only one, fighting with large tress. I get ORION only in
the winter, when the leaves are gone.
