Over the last few years DirecTV has been removing the manufacturer logo from their small parts and using a 2 digit dash code to designate the manufacturer. What manufacturer is designated by what number has been a curiosity of mine for some time. Recent discussions over LNB manufacturers makes me think it is a curiosity to others as well. Below is the list I have compiled so far, but it is still incomplete. Perhaps we can all complete it together. For the ones that are unknown, it would be nice to know at least one part that they make so we can have a point to search from. If a source can be found to point to the manufacturer, even better.

DASH    MANUFACTURER                    SOURCE

Approved materials list that was used is dated DEC2011.
09: Approved materials list lists the manufacturer of MDU3XFLTR0-09 as NAS and MDUSP4R0-09 as Sonora. Likely only 
	one is correct. MDUSP4R0-09 is listed on nasproducts.com as one of theirs.
