Anything above is outside the specification for this card.

I would advise to not do this: since disabling current limiting etc
will cause a large problem in the case of a short circuit thereby no

the tracks carrying power on the card as well as the tracks on the

for the few devices I do have, you seem to be for sure right.

All the Creatix stuff drawing up to 900mA on a potentially dual isl6405
has direct voltage from the PSU over an extra floppy connector.

Max. 500mA should be sufficient with a DiSEqC 1.2 compliant rotor.
Nothing else should come above that limit.

I wonder, if someone close in reading specs just now, can tell if 900mA
can be sufficient for two rotors ;)

Andre, BTW, assuming you still have a CTX944 (md8800 Quad), can you
measure if the 16be:0008 device really does switch between 13 and 18V.

You seem to mistake me for someone else. I do not have a CTX944 and never had.
