NB Some 922's have a run away actuator problem this problem has been reported by Mr. J. Cornwall on Sunday Night Satellite (Jan. 07/2001) and is an isolated problem. This problem looks to be associated with a particular manufacturing run & is hardware related. To solve this problem go back to your satellite dealer and request that you get a another DSR922 4DTV unit. This is an isolated problem and should not happen. Hopefully you or your dealer has setup actuator limits so if you have a receiver like this you won't damage your dish and/or actuator.
