I have the attached dish which was used earlier for Dir*ctv and I am now using it for B3V.I am connecting three outputs of the LNBs to three inputs of DP34 switch. Now how do I know which is 91.0 LNB and which is 82.0 LNB so that I can choose proper DISCEQ.

well something this good shouldn't die

pouring over this all evening.

as with the ird to fta work lately to me its the last area of the hobby I need to play with

I am finding the hobby really boring, its never about tv its about doing something new and learning.

and would love to work on the Viewsat & Pansat. for just shits and giggles.

when satfta left/was made to leave the hobby it left a rather large hole, then cc closed. so much is done closed source now. I don't think the advent of the fta has detremented the hobby I just think it hasn't been used to its full potentional. a box we can mess with and the legal providers can NOT write legally. so its only our code to deal with no updates. just wish more was done open source and publically exploiting the hardware having fun.

even the crappiest fta has a cpu and ram that far outruns a echostar Euro/ECM666

I don't own an fta so plan to mess with the echostar Euro/Ecm66 just as a winter play project it probably won't amount to much but atleast have fun trying.

now for an utter NEWBIE question

in page 2 of this thread

to quote O-PHD-2

0x7FFFFFFE, the top of memory (because it is signed addressing) , the last few bytes of the Flash (or TSOP for those who didn't know). At that location there will be a jmp to some address close by (as it only allows for 2 bytes). This is common to see amongst all versions.

7FFFFFE7 272F2F2F20202040 ldc #7FFF0000
7FFFFFEF F6 gcall
7FFFFFFE 6107 j loc_7FFFFFE7

Or something along that lines (as the board will really mess up my formatting).

now shockingly in the E666 bev Euro/Ecm666 tsop I have

7FFFFFFE 6107this using 7FF80000 as a base offset in hex workshop

now using these to documents

View/C4 Core Instruction Set Reference Manual pdf

View datasheet pdf

I don't see where the j routine is broken down from the 61 or 07 I am and I know this is a bad thing but ASSUMING the 61 is the jump and the 07 is its relative addressing

page 95 of the first pdf

j n jump
Code: Function 0
Description: Unconditional relative jump. The destination of the jump is expressed as
a byte offset from the first byte after the current instruction. j 0 causes a breakpoint.
if (n = 0)
Take a breakpoint trap
Iptr4 u next instruction + n
Areg4 u undefined
Breg4 u undefined
Creg4 u undefined
Error signals: j 0 can cause a breakpoint trap to be signalled.
Primary instruction.
Instruction is a descheduling point.
Instruction is a timeslicing point.

so I understand its a primary instruction

now by the View pdf

code Memory Mnemonic Processor Name Notes
code cycles
0 0X j 5 jump D,Tnow

D Instruction can deschedule
T Instruction can timeslice

I am just trying to understand the nomenclature

am familar with asm and its one of my favourite languages
and have worked on the mostek the intel and motorola processors

and I figure no point going past the first instruction until I understand it. so I probably need to be hit with a clue x 4.

but any takers or pointers?

and yes my 7FFFFFE7 exactly matches what Dave2 posted but I figure as I stated above might as well start off on the right foot.

I love the winter gives time late nights for reading the old threads.

Thank you!! Oleg PHD@usa

well still up reading so might as well correct myself on my wrong assumptions

not sure what this dump was from but the relevant code matched and was dissassembled

07 | 7FFFFFFF 07 J FFFFFFE7 (7FFFFFE7)any hints truely appreciated so is it working in nibbles or bytes. just talking to myself laugh. will keep reading in the morning, anyway thought I'd post to keep the thread alive.
the 0 at 7FFFFFFF 07 I understand the 7 puzzles me but more when I wake.

As far as I know
That is a very old Universal LNB
1- Vertical & 1-Horizontal

Good news yo can pick any bird from the sky
Linear Circular FSS yo name it
1 or 2 satellite

In general Rule of Thumb
Facing the dish
High Order Sat on the Right
Low Order Sat on the Left

I can answer any question yo got on this setup
However I don't know how yo'll get 3 outputs out of this
As both LNBs need a Sat combiner like 22KHz sw
Whatever yo do don't move the dish

Good stuff
This is what satellite hobby all about

DumDude: I would suggest you connect it up, as planned. Make sure you have two receivers on all the time - if you do not have a second receiver, get an old Receiver and connect it up. This is so you get enough power to the DP34.

Then play around with 91/82W antenna settings one at a time. Note that most of the channels are on 91W. 82W is mostly HD.
My feeling is that you will get 91W working with a receiver that is currently active on BEV (Most Viewsats and CaptiveWorks using older BINs).

You might want to consider ignoring 82W altogether and connect 91W as teh most extreme East LNB and try (when DN BIN is out) 119/118.7 on the other two.
