I think I may have changed my opinion on the Vbox, however, it might work fine with new HH motors. But the support seems non-existent. If it dies, then you are out.
support for which version of the vbox ? there are so many one the market right now. i can buy a vbox 2 or 3 or 6. dont forget the gbox 3000. whats up with that. i need to get back to the test bench and build a proper solution. i think itd be nice to have a modular controller. say one that you could scale to your dish farm. it could control skew and actuators. and be able to be added to. so if you add a dish you only need to buy another model to control it. plug it in and good to go. itd also be nice to say connect 10 recievers to it and have them be able to control whichever dish they need and is available. i think its time to read some spec sheets and exploit the diseqc protocol. itd be a good project for the microchip pics i have stored in my parts bins. haha.
we need to start a features poll maybe.
