But whats not normal is that i can only move it an inch out, so im going to ivenstigate this. i
My opinion is that you need to buy the right type cable, Cat5 was not designed for this function and you'll probably only have intermittent problems. You had a previous thread on using Cat5 and a problem with the actuator, you really need to buy a new actuator and get the correct cable because otherwise this will be an ongoing problem. The BUDs at times can be a real pain in the backside and you don't need to create extra problems especially with questionable components. Unless you enjoy the extra work troubleshooting.
i bought some cheap speaker wire to run the polorizer and motor. I want to get some good burial stuff. You can get satellite ribbon cable, but it comes with 2 rg-6 cables, i already have rg-6 out there. So where can you buy satellite ribbon cable without the lnb cables?
