Sorry, I was too inpatient. The picture pops to screen about 20-30s 
after the positioner has stopped.

I wonder if I should try to hack diseqc.conf parsing to wait for some 
time per each required degree for motor turn to avoid issuing the dvb 
tuning command too early. In my system I don't get any feedback about 
motor position. The worst case turn (28.2E to 1.0W) takes about 30s.

It is perfect for me because I'm using budget cards.
