    Ultra not storing Sat positions.

    Thanks turbosat, I think when I purchased mine it had Version 119 on it. Anyway,its been hooked to a DirecPC dish pointed at G18 for years,and just within the last month its been behind my 8.5' BUD. I'm using a GBOX to control the actuator and so far everything has been good except those 2...
