Databases are extremely important to the Monterey 100c Plus operation. They contain ALL the satellite and channel information needed for a successful installation.

Database are available for a wide variety of feeds. Before installing the Monterey 100c Plus be sure you have the correct database for the feed you will be using. The receivers are shipped with a Corotor database. If you will be using a Dual feed or Bullseye feed, be sure to request the correct database for the receiver to reduce the installation time.

Database Manager Program

Background

This program was designed to allow network managers to create, edit, archive and print a 100c+ database on an IBM-compatible PC. The program is DOS-based for universal compatibility.

The 100c+ was designed to allow for easy modification of its database. Older receivers required the replacement of EPROMs or the time consuming manual entry of all changes via a remote control. Because of the enhanced features of the 100c+, manual entry via a remote control unit is impractical and cumbersome. For networks using several different satellites and transponders, making changes and synchronizing all of their remote sites was difficult at best. The software tools designed for the 100c+ provide network managers with easy and efficient resources for managing their network.

To launch the Database Manager program, at a DOS prompt, type “DMBDEMO (the database file name including extension).”

Example: dbmdemo cr2_gen7.dbs
