I'm sure that this has been answered, but I couldn't find the topic when I searched. I have 1.2m dish that I'm using with great results on C-Band with a 4DTV receiver. The dish is moved with a Geosatpro FTA motor that is presently controlled by my Ultra receiver. I have the 4DTV receiver slaved through the loop-out from the Ultra.

I'm thinking of reversing the master/slave combination, but can the 4DTV control the small dish motor? My LNB is a Geosatpro CK1. I'm also wondering if the 4DTV would be able to control the LNB polarity and skew of the CK1? I don't want to just start hooking things up and experimenting because I can't afford to ruin a motor or LNB.

Just to give you the whole picture, I'm not using the KU band output on the CK1, just the c-band. I have another small motorized dish and receiver devoted to KU-Band that I'm also presently using as a master (through the loop-out) to the 4DTV for KU channels. The reason for this is I could never get the KU band output to work on the CK1.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

the 4DTV cannot run that type of motor. Only an actuator
