There is definitely DiSEqC satellite motor control present in the MythTV
code. I do expect any DVB-S/S2 card to work but you can check the DiSEqC
support of the card with what your satellite motor requires. According to
the comment in the code DiSEqC 1.2 and 1.3 should be OK.
However, I do not have a satellite motor myself and I am not aware of any
MythTV user that actually has a motorized satellite.
Your mileage may vary....
