I think that there are a few motors that will operate under DiseqC 1.0, but you may find it a bit limiting once you're all set up. I'll find out a couple of names for you, the Jaeger Silent Gold may be one that can operate under 1.0.
I wasn't doubting your advise its just that I'd already posted to Humax..
Just to clarify..I need a Digiquest motor which will get me 4 satellites? will it be ok for use in the UK? anyone know where I can get one? are they easy to fit myself?
hi howard i had a f1 vaci on a motorised system i had stand alone positioner i selected my channel then turned dish to satellite i found that if positioner failed box still worked i didnt need disceq motor hope this helps
There are loads of alternatives if you feel that the 4 positions are not sufficient, you can go the same route as tuksumduin and either buy a dedicated positioner, or an analogue receiver wiith positioner (very cheap).
thanks m8..let me get this right..
I could run an analogue box (with integral positioner)alongside my Humax
Or I could buy a dedicated positioner with its own power source
Or I can get a motor that operates under Diseqc 1.0 (own power supply?)
Or I could buy a whole new system and sell this one.
hi howard i have dedicated positioner with its own mains power. . cable from dish motor into positioner to turn dish. cable from lnb to humax 5400z i have 14 sat positions tuned into positioner some not very clear depending on weather conditions i know wich channels are on what saterllite and turn dish to wich channel i want to watch
when i said cable from positioner to dish motor i ment h to h mount that fits inbetween pole and dish the mount gets its power from the positioner eg on my positioner hotbird is no5 so if i want to watch hotbird i just put no5 into positioner with remote positioner sends electric signal up to h to h mount and turns it to hotbird i hope this makes it a bit clearer
