Hey guys.. Currently I run a 3 lnb system using a diseqc switch. My feed from my switch goes through a loft box before it comes down to my dreambox 500-s. As it is , it works just fine. What I wanna ask is, I've just order MOTECK SG 2100A DIGIPOWER MOTOR DiSEqC 1.2 ,1.3\ USALS , considering my switch works fine via the loft box, do you think the motor will too ?

Should do, it is obviously accepting DiseqC commands and should be capable of two way traffic, it is after all only a diplexer/triplexer. :)

Make sure that there is adequate adjustment to ensure a perfectly vertical mast. :)
