Forget USALs and use standard DiseqC, takes an hour to set everything up, but then will work until you next reset.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Agreed, I never could work the USALS thing on the ones I fitted, so used DiSEqC and everything on the major satellites comes in, though the minor ones do need fettling.

(Fine tuning with the analyser on the outgoing tuner port helps, though with one of the inline meters you will need to fit inline with the motor/LNB.

ive recently been messing with my motor and i no expert, but i did the silly thing of setting east/west limits both at 0, so the damn thing wouldnt move. was racking my brains for hours till i realised what i'd done.

dunno if this would work for you as im not sure what stores the limits, the motor or the reciever.

ive deleted all limits so isnt the problem...


looks like im going back to standard diseqc, but it seems weired that it worked then it doesnt.

Thanks for your comments :)

Dish isnt lined up because of it so ill have to re align at some point when the rain stops :)

For the football today ive had to program a funcard for a diferent type of box and fit it in the living room :(
