I only have a Nexus-s for sat card and right now my rotor alignment is all screwed up. Relays went bad and had to replace them. I left the rotor elevation setting untouched but now it over shoots more and more the farther it goes as if the elevation is wrong. Haven't had time to look into it.

This really is sorely missing from VDR. Its a nice project which I
might look at if I ever get a spare moment! First I would have to
update my VDR from 1.7.0 with multiproto as lack of good support for
vdr-rotor has been holding me back from upgrading to S2API and later
development versions of VDR.

Well, it took awhile but I have updated to yavdr 0.3 with S2API and a
NV card and it is pretty stable now.

The old rotor plugin is pretty unstable with yavdr (and perhaps later
versions of VDR in general) and it seemed that no-one wanted to fix
it, so I finally got around to modifying the actuator plugin to work
with my disecq rotor (well actually a V-BOX hooked up to a 24V
actuator). I can now get rid of the rotor plugin completely and drive
my dish to the right positions and find / tune satellites with the
modified actuator plugin, which IMHO works and looks better.  It also
allows me to scan DVB-S channels right from the plugin too.

I'd like to release it at some point when I've tidied it up (perhaps
as rotor-ng or something), but one issue I have is with DVB-S2 signal
tuning and scanning on my Hauppauge Nova HD-S2 card - does anyone have
this functionality working either with this card or another card with
the actuator plugin's scanner?

When I tune to a DVB-S2 channel (QPSK or 8PSK) within the plugin I get
nothing, but when I tune in VDR the plugin shows full lock etc. I'd
like to get this functionality working before releasing it and I
thought it might be a problem with the card not supporting
ROLLOFF_AUTO but that doesn't make any difference.

Any help would be great.
