You won't get much if anything from Nilesat, but you get a little from Arabsat, if your receiver has DiseqC 1.2, then a DiseqC motor will be fine. :)

my strong 4450 says it accepts diseqc v 1.0 supported.
does it accept the diseqc 1.2 motor mount

If it is DiseqC 1.0, then it isn't a lot of use for a DiseqC motor, I think that a 1.2m dish is the minimum for Nilesat and that will not get everything.
