Those guys use a computer program which intercepts the data from the LNB, and converts it to usable information.

I figured it out. It's a PC tuner card connected to the LNB with some open source DVR software that has some scripts that can talk to the transponders if wanted.. I'm not at the point where I want to watch TV on my computer, oh well.
Why don't you try this procedure: http://www.dbstalk.c...568#post3090568
You can create your own TPN Map, one channel at a time. Most importantly, you can validate the TPN Map for that limited set of channels that are important to you.
No expense involved here. But your DVR does need to be connected to at least your own LAN so you can talk with it through the IP port.
