NOTE: Tighten all the coaxial cable connections only by hand. Using a wrench may over-tighten the connections, causing damage. Such damage is not covered by the Limited warranty.
Motorized System FAQ:
Do I need a separate power line to connect to the HH Motor?
No. The motor gets its power from the receiver using the same coaxial cable running from the receiver to the LNBF on the dish. You simply disconnect the cable from the LNBF. Connect it to the HH Motor. Then run a short coaxial cable between the motor and the LNBF. You are set.
How do I control the motor to move it East / West?
The motor is controlled by the receiver's remote control. All receivers compliant with the DiSEqC 1.2, 1.3, or USALS protocol have the capability to run an HH motor. Once you initially setup the motor on the satellite arc and store the locations of the satellites, you will be able to move between satellites by simply changing the channel.
Does the motor also adjust for variation in elevation on the dish for each satellite?
Yes it does.
Do I need to skew the LNBF on a motorized dish?
No you don't. Just set the skew at 0 and the motor will tilt the whole dish when it moves.
What is the benefit from motorizing my dish?
Well, by adding a motor to your system you will be able to receive satellite channels from several satellites instead from one only. That way you will gain many more channels economically without investing in many dishes and switches.
Where can I find out what channels are available free to air?
There are many DVB free to air channels available in North America on satellites such as Galaxy 10R, AMC4, Telstar 5, AMC3, etc. There are channels from the USA and from around the world. See http://www.lyngsat.com/america.shtml for a complete listing of what is available. Any DVB Channel with an F designation is FREE TO AIR.
