hi guys,
to get a better signal as i think my cables too long, i'm gonna bang in an inline amp, now because i'm using ss2diseqc with my motor, and through reading what rolf has said in past, i think i'm gonna get vbox,(bear with me as i'm treading light) i take it i can run the cable from lnb to inline amp then to ss2card, then run another cable from motor to vbox that will be sat next to me at comp, i then use vbox to drive motor to desired location, then use inline amp to get better signal and i wont fry anything.
is this correct and more importantly is it a good idea.

ps topper what's the best cable to use as i might replace cable for a better quality one

cheers:-reindeer

if i'm talking a load of bo**ocks please tell me, it save me waisting valuable grey matter

You are talking a load of bo**ocks. VBOX is to convert DiSEqC signals into a 36V feed for non-DiSEqC motors :D

Have to agree there. Actuators rule! Let the power cable take the strain!
