Friends!

Can any one explain how to use USALS in an STB. I am using DMS Diseqc motor model SG-2100 with Open Box HD S2. When I entered my coordinates in motor setup with USALS selected, the motor is going all the way to West-end and stopping there and not moving. I entered an active TP on G sat 10 @83E which is near to my longitude 80.988.Thank U

I have the same motor with me and used it for about 5 years.
  1. Please try few things. When the motor is powered, please press the reset button on the motor. It should bring the motor back to center position.
  2. I am assuming that you have directed the motor to your true South while mounting. Based on your profile, your longitude is 80.99 DEG East. Closet satellite near True South is 82 Deg. So, before tightening the motor mounting bolts, you need to move the motor to 82 Deg and you need to align it.
  3. Now, in the STB enter your longitude and latitude (80.99 and 16.44)
  4. Move the motor to 82 Deg E by selecting the satellite.
  5. Choose a strong TP in that satellite and align the dish properly. (tighten the bolt only with hand, while aligning without tools it takes lot of effort and patience to get the alignment correctly)
Hope you have mounting the motor on a perfectly plumb mast and not using the mount that comes with DTH dishes. Even a little bend in the mounting pole affects the tracking drastically. You will have to align the dish in the end of the arc to get best the best signals. All the best

You may not find all the satellite listed. But you can add satellites in the setup menu.
