I have a skystar 1. Does anyone knows what setting should I choose under the properties of SkyStar 1 CI TV. I have a motorised system, but for some strange reason, I cannot get skystar 1 to move the dish. :( Please help me, because I am in a state of despair. :)

I am trying to use, the software which came with the card itself.

The motor works fine, because when I move it manually it moves. The skystar 1 is not like the sky star 2, in that you have to play with a diseq plugin, the skystar 1 supposts diseq from whitin it.

The settings I am using are these,
Under the Tab LNB Switch
LNB SETUP 1 (only)
LNB Power: ON
LNB Type: Universal
22Khz: Disable
ToneBurst: Disable
Databurst: Disable
Diseqc: Disable

Under the Tab Dish Setup
Select Dish: Dish 1
Dish Type: Usals
Longitude and Latitude : Those corresponding to my country
LNB Setup: Setup 1

I have a 1meter dish with a motor and one lnb of 0.3db.
I have tried other software but still to no avail. I even changed cards, because I thought the first one was faulty :( .
I have tried all settings, but I think I am surely doing something incorrect. I opened this thread because I know that here there are some peeps who have a skystar 1, who might give me a helping hand.

I use a Nexus-S and Triax 110cm and maxiblock with SG-2100 motor and all is fine,still not sure what you are doing,the original progs that come with these cards are almost worthless and never used that I have ever heard of.I just ust ProgDVB and the normal plugins and it works flawlessly. I believe Nexus-S is identical to SS-1 card

I agree with Kalamar, forget the original software, use ProgDVB and the appropriate plugin, there is a thread in this section on how to load the plugin, everything needs to be done in a certain order.

PS. We have more than one member using the SS1 with a motor.

Ok I succeded in getting progDVB to working with skystar 1 using the technotrend driver, and then found this plugin kvaDiseqc0.6 and put it into the root directory of the progDVB, and it shows under the plugins menu of the progDVB software, but when I go to plugins --> \kvaDiseqc0.6 --> Drive, the dish does not move. (The motor works, as manually I can move the dish).
Any good tutorials, or maybe am I doing something wrong :(?
