yeah thanks Razor,
i found out the hard way but after upgrading the firmware ("main software") from 127 to 133 it now works. BTW there is a good list on toecutters about what recievers work with the MR cam and it does list the dsr9000 but it doesn't mention the firmware/software version.
satdudez don't seem to let in new members - as you're probably aware.
so i am now giving back with listing my info above.
