As I understand it, the Pansat 2700 and 3500 are capable of driving a Polorotor. I assume that, by adding a Vbox-II (other suggestions?) for the jack, you can have full C-band dish control from either receiver. Anyone doing this? Comments?

That is correct. Either receiver will control the polorotor (servo) motor, and with a VBox or a GBox it will fully control a Big Dish.

I recommend the GBox. It is head and shoulders above the competition!

I have 2 - GBoxes and 2 - VBox IIs, and one VBox IV. The VBox V will move my 10 foot Perfect 10 dish with an almost new Von Weise actuator on it, but won't even budge my Birdview dish.

I have never had the GBoxes fail on anything I put them on.

I can't wait until Sadoun comes out with the GBox that will control the actuator and the servo motor. Shouldn't be long now. :)
