[vdr] rotor screen missing stuff

The plugin has been downgraded. There are people who use a patched and patched 0.1.4 rather than the official 0.1.5
The situation with the rotor plugin is so bad (so much patching needed to get it to work and then I found it makes vdr unstable)  I've resorted to having two parallel installations of vdr
one I use just for the rotor plugin when I need to use it to align the dish and store the positions.

In my 'normal' vdr installation I don't use the rotor plugin but rather diseq commands 'Go to position X'

Here is my diseqc.conf if it helps you:

I guess it comes down to the hard truth that there is no vdr 1.7.x user with C programming skills using a rotor who needs something more than USALS 1.2

I am trying to get my rotor working again. I had been using v0.1.4 with 
vdr-1.6.0. Now I'm trying to get v.0.1.5 working with vdr-1.7.15. On the 
rotor page, Postion information no longer shows the sat it matches to, 
the option to do a scan on the current TP is gone, and the lock and 
other indicators are gone. Was that all part of the text2skin plugin 
which I'm not using now? or has the plugin been down graded?
