I've seen those boxes advertised but hadn't looked at them close yet. Seen any diy projects for those? designing/building the hardware is easy, but I'm not much of a programmer. That vbox is what the electronics part of the small dish rotors are. I was thinking of building around an Atmel chip. They are a couple dollars US and could easily do the job. They have enough both ram and flash memory to store the position of every sat up there, not just the ones you can see.

the rotor plugin ( or at least version 1.4mh) can control one rotor per card.

For c-band you need a vbox to translate the diseqc commands and to provide the
36 volts to drive the actuator. Thats how I do it. costs about $40
(australian). Piece of cake.  Or am I missing something?
