I've just upgraded from 7607 to 7738 in hopes of getting my dish to move
properly under MythTV. So far I'm having no luck. I've verified that Myth is
calculating the correct offset (I believe), which is ~ -36 degrees. However,
the dish either doesn't move or moves to the wrong offset. I'm trying to use
USALS (Goto X) with a Nexus 2.3 card.


2005-11-17 15:44:33.580 DiSEqC(0): DiSEqC Motor Moving

Offset = -36.019717

2005-11-17 15:44:33.583 DiSEqC(0): 1.3 Motor - Goto Angular Position -110

2005-11-17 15:44:33.601 DiSEqC(0): Sending 1.0 Command: e0 31 6e d2

2005-11-17 15:44:33.689 DiSEqC(0): Sending 1.3 Repeat Command: e0 31 6e d2

2005-11-17 15:44:33.905 DVB#0 Old Params: freq(0) type(QPSK)



I see the code does a reset before a move, is that necessary? Does that do
the same as return to 0 degrees? Has anyone else had these problems?


Thanks, Mark.
