It has been a while since I worked on these kind of electronic equipment and I do not remember or kept any notes about specific troubleshooting. I worked for a company before that was repairing these motorola satellite receivers for starchoice Canada.
Are you using the audio/video inputs or RF input?
Where in Canada do you live?

DSR 922- to begin with it wouldn't shut off, no function will work with the remote, unplugged it and replugged it and now there is nothing but the inspirational channel on G3 217. H20


IF the receiver lost its sat settings you had, you best check the internal battery. the lithium battery should be 3.70 volts...if its dead you need to replace it, without interupting the power source...this will also cause you to lose your unit ID number. then you won't be able to subcribe to programming...the 922 can be repaired if the battery dies.

Have a DSR 922 that I can not get W5 to program in the satellite list. When I highlight it and push enter it all ways returns to the current satellite I was on, insted of letting me move the dish to the W5...


Do not know if I solved the problem yet. Went on Skyvision site and somebody had the same problem. They told him he would have to do a Master reset, and reprogram all satellites and east/west limits. Just haven't had time to do this yet. Will let you know if it works.

I get get digital signals on dsr 922


does the creen say searching for channel? if so you might have to update the maps...go to G! 3 and leave there for about 15 to 20 minutes...make sure you got a dc light....if no you have a tuning issue...play with the skew...

Motorola dsr922 lockup on startup


ATS electronics can repair the board that died. running out of boards is not a problem. the dsr-920 receiver is junk if the battery dies..the chip that stores the unit ID number is no longer manufactured....

Power outages cause receiver to lose unit ID numbers.


When the backup battery goes dead you loose the ID number.

If you have lost your receiver ID number you will need a new main board.
Check the receiver number in the status screen. If it matches the UA number on the back sticker you are ok, if not the only solution is replacing the main board. ATSelectronics.com still had some boards when I last checked. But when they run out were all screwed.
Motorola didn't make any provisions for renewing the ID number.
That really sucks motorola ;-(

Cannot change/move satellite


I assume this is an outdoor satellite dish system, like a c-band system? It sounds like the motor drive outside has a stripped gear on the main shaft. The motor is probably running and the sensor wheel is turning (making the unit in the house think the dish is moving) but the screw shaft is not turning.

Hope that helped

Tiling and Breakup


I am having the same issue. The receiver, however, is a 920 model. The satellite repairman states that the receiver is the problem and that I need to purchase a new 922 model.
