The shows that are recorded to the external usb can they be watched externally from the tv by plugging the usb into a computer?
No, the box records in a specific format that can only be replayed through the box.
Can I play movies from usb connected to DSD 4921
The 4921 isn't a media player unfortunately so you can't play movies in any other format. The box will only playback files recorded direct from satellite. So great for recording programs while watching another and for fast forwarding through ads etc.
I have just had this unit installed in my caravan and have registered my smartcard and it is asking for me to hit the reset button. where is it please. Regards Ron Allen
Here are the steps to get it up and running (travellers only):
Align the dish
Switch the box on and scan in all the channels
Register the card if not already done - https://www.mysattv.com.au/travellers.aspx
If already registered but card is coming up with no permission to view the channels (or similar) rehit the card at this link (box must be switched on and displaying that message - https://www.mysattv.com.au/decoderrehit.aspx
Does it have a drive caddy so i can put my own hdd in later if i want to
Hi Kylie, No, this is the PVR ready version. We now have the units with built in hard drive available now. They have a 500GB capacity drive. The link to the units is here - https://www.satplus.com.au/products/altech-4921-rv-vast-certified-decoder-with-built-in-500gb-hdd?variant=13786204799045 Regards John
Can it record to an external USB device? Can files (movies) be transferred between (both saved and copied) Internal HDD and USB device?
This is a PVR ready unit so there is no internal HDD, only the option to connect an external USB stick or drive.
What is the code DL mean when displayed on set top Bec
Hi Bec, DL means downloading. Generally you will only see this message when the Altech decoder box reboots. Regards John
