D1The original Datastorm controller, in production from October of 2001 through late 2004, is referred to as the D1.
This flat box with a single blue button on the front contains circuitry that moves the dish, but does not have the processing power to know where to point it. This controller requires a serial connection to a computer running Windows, on which the Datastorm software will reside to "control the controller."
