homemade dish mover idea!
ok there is not much left on analog, and my drake makes the room hot, plus it takes up space.
im thinking of making something that takes a 36 volt trasformer, housed seperate from the unit (so my computer station is not a heater)
two switches housed on top, for east and west,
a little dial on top, where i can mark satellites
what i need to know is how do you switch dc? if there is only two wires, how do you make something that allows you switch polarties, and induce the voltage to the motor?

You should have just bought a 920 or a 922 instead of a 905.
But since you didn't why don't you get a Gbox and use it with a FTA receiver and slave the 905 off of it.

Here's the schematic to switch polarities. Just get a double pole double throw switch.
you connect two wires between the outside poles. They look like an X but shouldn't touch. The battery or power supply goes on the left side. The wires to the actuator go to the middle connections.
Having said this, I think that idea is really poor.
I would do what kbghdg said. Or better yet, keep your Drake or other C-band receiver to move the actuator. This costs less money
By the way, how is your neighbor's hole doing?
