It does, depending how the dish position is reached.
Diseqc commands are enough if you use only those
positions which are preprogrammed into the motor.

If you use command like 'gotoxy 28.2E' you need to do
a bunch of trigonometric calculations not found in
basic VDR.   Read the source, gotoxy-patch in Rotor-plugin.
