Will a humax F1-VACI with diseq 1.1 drive a diseq 1.2 motor
Also as the receiver only allows 4 positions (4 dishes) will I be limited to only 4 sat positions?
regards

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Digiquest branded a motor many years ago that could be used with the four position receivers, but its unlikely there are any still about - they were rather difficult to tune as well

The DiseqC motor that I've just given to my Nephew could be used with 1.1, but I'm not sure where to get another from, you would simply set your 4 satellites while the motor is in position by pressing the on motor buttons.

Thanx to all.
It looks like its time to bin the old HUMAX F1-VACI 5300
Viacess is not upgradeable to V2?
DISEQC 1;1 NO GOOD
Not upgradeabble by satellite
the only good thing is the option of adding a cam but as the dish is not steerable with Diseqc1.2 i might as well use the cam in a FTA reciever with cam ability and Diseqc1.2
Thanks again to all

You can still get hold of them for around £90 but they are annoying to tune as you have to set them manually at the dish and they can only store 4 (Diseqc1.0) or 8 (Diseqc1.1) sat positions.

They are really only any good if you stick to the same sats.

If anyone is interested then I will let them know where I got mine from.

Tiggy check your PM.
