Good evening gentlemen : )

Missed the 5 off the title : }

Has the Technomate TM-5402HD C1+SUPER + a high low limit setting ?

I have owned this receiver for a few years, now due to a larger dish, new wall brackets and using jacks I need to set the limits at East & West.

I have had a good look in the manual and searched online, but nothing found.

The Vbox does have settable limits, but suggests they can also be set with the receiver, maybe not this model.

I have set the limits on the East West jack but they are not quite correct, so rather than resetting them in situ, I would prefer for now to set them via the receiver.

God Bless Spiff

It doesn't matter where you set them, since the limits will be set on the VBox, not the receiver. Receiver has no idea where the dish is pointing to, so everything is controlled by Vbox, including the limits.

The same applies to DiSEqC motors - limits are set FROM receiver but are stored in motor's memory. Like above, the receiver has no idea where the dish is.

Good Morning Captain Jack,

Thank you for the information, the Technomate should have a setting then if it can be used to set the limits on a DiSEqC motor. I cannot find it though.

I will set it via the vBox from your esteemed advice, but still curios as to why I cannot find it on the Technomate .

Kind Regards Spiff

Thread moved from Technomate Linux as this is a non Linux receiver question.
