I think there is some new law that they can only use 24 volts and be UL listed. If they put a motor drive in a DVB receiver it would be more or less a full blown IRD. That would be nice.
Servo control on a STB that can do S2 would be great. When it's available, I'll get one.
There used to be a FTA receiver with one built-in. http://www.satelliteguys.us/satelliteguys-classifieds/89885-satcruiser-fta-analog-dsr-2040-ace.html
I think all the new H2 receivers are good news and forcing Openbox to fix their FW...I really like the servo...but I don't know if that one feature (well PID too) is worth $70.
If it don't directly decode AC3 through HDMI etc, well, that is one against it for me.
