Hi,

your opinion is right for diseqc installations with only motor. But it 
could be also combined with commited and uncommited switches.

I'm using 2 dish installation, one fixed multifeed with 5 LNB's and 
second dish on motor with one LNB. In my installation there are 3 
switches in cascade - first switch is 2 input uncommited with 2 4-input 
commited switches connected to uncommited switch. The motor is between 
DVB card and uncommited switch to prevent high current flow through 
diseqc switches.

For any of fixed LNB the diseqc.conf looks like (example for LNB on C 
input of commited switch connected to 1st input of uncommited switch)

S23.5E  11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 10 39 F0] W15 [E0 10 38 F8] W15 t
S23.5E  99999 V 10600  t v W15 [E0 10 39 F0] W15 [E0 10 38 F9] W15 T
S23.5E  11700 H  9750  t V W15 [E0 10 39 F0] W15 [E0 10 38 FA] W15 t
S23.5E  99999 H 10600  t V W15 [E0 10 39 F0] W15 [E0 10 38 FB] W15 T

For LNB on motorized dish it could look like

S7W  11700 V  9750 t v W15 [E0 10 39 F1] W15 [E0 10 38 FC] V G W15 v t
S7W  99999 V 10600 t v W15 [E0 10 39 F1] W15 [E0 10 38 FD] V G W15 v T
S7W  11700 H  9750 t V W15 [E0 10 39 F1] W15 [E0 10 38 FE] V G W15 V t
S7W  99999 H 10600 t V W15 [E0 10 39 F1] W15 [E0 10 38 FF] V G W15 V T

(remark that output of motorized LNB is connected to D input of commited 
switch connected to second input of uncommited switch).

So practically every combination of switches and motor is possible to use.


Best Regards,

Ales
