Yes ;)
You probably use the GotoX command on channel switch. Since version 0.1.2
you can decide to which cards the plugin shall react (this is useful, when
more cards are connected to the steerable dish)
In the setup menu of the rotor plugin you can say configure and decide which
cards are connected to your steerable dish.

I think it would be a good idea (for the next release) to check in the
plugin, whether the source is really a satellite. (The dvb-t channel is
interpreted as S0.0W not S1.0W :-)
