This is why I wanted to join them together, so if such change will be made, separate close to eachother positions don't really matter. I think 0.5 degrees might be too much apart (depends of configuration.. dish size specially) and rare condition, and making VDR to steer dish "in between" two would make too much complicity, right? > > In this patch I have combined 28.2E and 28.5E positions as one 28.2E > > position, as atleast I have set them both up as one single position. > > Sorry, I don't think this is a good idea. > Please make them separate again if you want your patch to be adopted. Thanks for the feedback. I wasn't aware if this is intentional or just by mistake.

I agree. I haven't examined any of such data that satellites may broadcast. Ofcourse I would prefer to keep official values for them. I made some slight changes to some postions like 3E -> 3.1E, but I have changed them back to original in revised patch. I didn't check what they broadcast, as I don't have knowhow to read such broadcast information from stream. There was some completely new positions in Asia and America region, so I have no possiblity to check any official positions for them anyway, as I reside in Europe and have no possibility to receive them. So v2 patch does not change any positions, only changes satellite names and adds new and removes old, no longer used satellite positions. Also in v2 changed "Hotbird" to "Eutelsat Hot Bird", as it is now called as such.
