Do I need
to install a separate power line to connect to the
HH motor mount?
motor gets powered by the receiver. The receiver provides power to
turn the LNB on and to switch polarity. The motor consumes the
same power through the
coaxial cable that runs from the receiver to the
LNBF. Simply run the coaxial cable to your satellite dish motor,
then from the HH dish motor run a 3 or 4 foot coaxial cable to the LNBF.
How do I
control the motor to move it East / West?
The motor is
controlled by the receiver's remote control. All receivers compliant
with the DiSEqC 1.2, 1.3, or USALS protocol have the capability to run
satellite motor. Once you install and setup the motor to follow the
satellite arch properly and store the different satellite positions and
locations into the receiver, the receiver will automatically go to the
location where the channel is being broadcasted from when you change TV
channels on the receiver.
HH motors & receivers USALS,
DiSEqC 1.2, & DiSEqC 1.3 compatible?
All satellite motors and HH mounts are DiSEqC1.2 & DiSEqC1.3 compatible,
but not all
dish motors are USALS compatible. Motors that are NOT
USALS compatible are sometimes more reliable.
satellite C/Ku band receivers are DiSEqC 1.2 and DiSEqC 1.3 compatible.
DiSEqC1.0. Make sure the receiver
you purchase is at least DiSEqC 1.2 compatible.
C band and Ku band?
You need a C band dish (2.4 meters / 6 foot) or larger to be able to
pick up C band. This system is only for Ku band reception.
motor also adjust for variation in elevation on the dish for each and
When you install the motor based on your latitude, the motor will adjust
the elevation as well.
skew (rotate) my
LNBF to align for polarity?
leave the LNB at 0 degrees skew and the motor will tilt the satellite
dish to make up for the adjustment of skew.
the benefit from motorizing my dish?
motor to your system allows you to receive satellite channels from
satellites & not just one.
I find out what channels are available free to air?
