So I like to tinker FTA is not my sole source of TV and my family doesn't use it. With that out of thw way. I got some 1.2m channel masters with polar mount and screw jacks. I don't really like the idea of running all of the multi conductor wire to the one spot in my yard where my one fixed dish is. Here's my idea put a switch up and go to to my second dish. At the second dish put one of those cheap vbox units so I can control the jack using diseqc. I have a NEMA enclosure and I can power the unit (vbox) using a solar setup. Now I have one run of coax going to my dishes and I can control the motorized one and fixed using my switch and receiver. Why? Well the good location that I have my dishes in, it's logisticly easier to have one run of coax with the hopes of having more dises in the future . Plus it's just a hobby for me so I'm OK with a little tinkering. I just thought this would be better to have one run of coax and keep the vbox at the dish. It looks like they run on AC, so a small inverter would be needed. If there is a way to run one of straight DC that would make it easier. Anyone out there already doing this?
