There's already support in Myth for Diseqc motor control via diseqc 1.2 &
1.3. I've tried both and am having trouble with both but at this point I'm
wondering if it has something to do with my setup.
Note, in svn versions of Myth there seems to be a bug in PositionerGoto()
for diseqc 1.2. I've found that tuning.diseqc_pos is float and it needs
converting to int before sent via ioctl() or your dish will only move to
stored position 0. I haven't put in a ticket for this yet.

Subject: [mythtv-users] Free air antenna and rotor control
I just installed a free air antenna with rotor and get a lot of channels
but I need to move the antenna at times. Would be cool if there was a hack
to control the antenna. It would need to setup and do a 360 scan to find
all the channels then it would be easy to turn right/left and find best
signal for whatever it needed to record. Back to back programs on
different channels would be hard, but other then that it should work fine.
