I did that, i took my position with an gps, putet ther in lnb config, and afther that changing channels.conf form diferent satelites, but i did something wrong because i did not manage to get signal, until i setup my antena manualy again (form left right switches of motor).

 My idea was to use this patch and stored position from my motor!!
