As someone else already mentioned in response to your message, there is
no support for this currently. At some point someone filed a bug and
supplied a preliminary patch but it was never integrated:
I would also benefit at some point from a mechanism to rotate an antenna
on channel change...
By the way, I'm curious to know what antenna rotor you are using since
I am looking into getting one (my attic antenna is not picking up well
some channels because of antenna orientation and I am hoping that
rotating the antenna on demand will fix this).
