Only a switch can be controlled with DiSEqC 1.0, not a motor (as far as I know). You need DiSEqC 1.2 for a motor.
But if your receiver has some menu items for motor setup then it has probably DiSEqC 1.2 anyway. Why not try it and see, what happens?

Built-in positioner has nothing to do with DiSEqC. You need to update your receiver to DiSEqC 1.2 if it is possible.
