If you have already your rotor positions stored then you don't need the plugin
at all (which does not work well with vdr 1.7.x, when you get it to work it
turns vdr into a rather unstable program) the rotor plugin needs re-writing in
my opinion.

Just setup your diseqc.conf like this:

S19.2E 11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 31 6B 01] W25 [E0 31 6B 01] W15 t

These are my first 3 sat positions
the number  (in hex) after 31 6B is the stored position)

What you are missing without the rotor plugin is the ability to move your rotor
hunting for new positions or re-aligning the dish. xdipo can help there, it is
a stand alone program.
