hi,
I'd like to buy an HH motor for my small 80cm dish.
the best would be a motor that support dishes up to 120cm (I guess I'm gonna upgrade soon).
Now, since I have a echostar 3000ip that doesn't support disecq 1.2 I need a 36v/switch hh motor.

I've been looking on the internet and all I could find are two websites: www.doebis.de and www.belsat.ch

Both websites are in german and I couldn't understand much. anyway I dropped them both an email asking for a Jaeger SG107.

How is this motor? and also, does anyone know any website that sells 36V HH motors?

Thanks!

PS I live in Italy so ordering from a .ch website would mean VAT.

Almost any company couled sell you a 36v H to H motor, thay are old technology (but thats not a bad thing at all)

Just make sure whoever sells you the goods offers installation (at a callout cost ) or a money back guarantee if its not suitable. The 3000 Echostar will cope with all equipment available on the market

good luck

Well, I've been installing all my fixed dishes for like 1 year now. I'd like to install the motor by myself. is it something very hard?

Anyway, can you guys suggest me a website that ships fast?

Which 80cm dish do you have and what fitting to the wall ?
Some dishes just cannot be mounted onto a motor

You would also require the additional four or five wire cable and a way of securing it to the main signal wire.

As its Christmas I believe no company is likely to despatch much until tomorrow earliest and then the couriers may not deliver next day

Stab and Jaeger are the two with manufacturing facilitie. The others are badged versions.

Ajak, Geotrack are also names for Horizon to Horizon gearbox makers

I bought a Brand new Jaeger H120 from hackney market for £65. some other guy was selling the stab H100 for £75. I choose the Jaeger over the stap bcos it has got a manual button on the diseqc motor

The install manual on the Jaeger is crap an not as detailed as the stab.

Can anyone email me(or link for ) the install manual for the stab. I cant seem to find it on the internet

thanks

I've got an Echostar 3000ip and I'm in the same boat since moving house and leaving my dish/polar mount behind.

Since they support Diseqc 1.0 is it not possible to use an Diseqc H2H motor? Would Diseqc 1.2 motors work ok with a 1.0 receiver or would you have to source a 1.0 model?

I dont think from any source one can get a Echostar 3000IP firmwar to move a DiSeQc motor

1.2 is the designation for a motor - 1.0 simply means four seperate inputs using a DiSEqC switch

I stand to be corrected though

The motor that I use will operate under DdiseqC 1.0, but it only gives four positions, possibly not worth while.

Ah!

It make more sense now, the 3000ip can control 4 Lnbs through Diseqc but that's the extent of it's abilities.

I need a receiver with 1.2 and upwards to move motors then!

Just one problem though this retailer claims that this motor will work with 1.0/1.1 receivers.

I'm confused now

I know some forums are funny about posts like this so I thought it best to mask it.

Now then, can I really put up with just four sats? Mmmmmm!

I'd certainly agree with you CH, having said that though, I would doubt that I watch more than three satellites on a regular basis, 1W, 30W and 19.2E.

I'm currently renting this property so I'm a little restricted in what I can get away with, it's a south facing garden so I can get something set up on the patio but I will be restricted by the neighbouring properties.

Here's some specs on what different Diseqc versions can do.

I tend to agree with you rolfw, with my old setup I never really did much more than 19.2e, 13e and 1w (couldn't get 30w 'cos of a tree).

That adds up to 4, would anyone like to strongly suggest any other sats that I should be looking at on a regular basis?
