The DSR922 was made from 2001-2007. No more being made from motorola ;-(
The seventh digit from the left is the date code.
So a 4 in that place means manufacture date of 2004.

Help -Motorola DSR922 Clicking After Power Goes On And Off

I had same problem - found clicking stopped when I disconnected the Ku LNB - probably shorted. But, I have other problems in that both receiver and unit i.d. numbers have changed. So far, the only option seems to be to send it back to ATS (828 465 9968) for repair. I also had unit on UPS power.
