The rotor plugin doesn't seem to be maintained anymore and was always
somewhat of a hack to vdr. Seems to me rotor control should really be a
part of vdr diseqc control code. Just about every sat box out there
includes rotor control function.
I also looked at the Actuator plugin because I am interested in getting
something going with c-band and thought maybe it included rotor
commands. Don't it does, doesn't look like it's been updated since
vdr-1.6.0, and requires a custom kernel module. I don't mind building
custom electronics and was planing to anyway. But I don't want to have
to hack code into the kernel. I think they have boxes that provide
actuator control from rotor diseqc commands anyway which brings us back
to including it.
I would also like to see it be able to handle a rotor per card. Not much
point in having several sat tuners if they all have to look at the same sat.
