    Supreme Dark Motor

    Hi All,
    I need some advice
    I'm in the process of installing a motorised system, The motor being a supreme dark motor the one with the led display.
    I have a duo2 box. after reading numerous guides and threads I have set the duo2 up. the problem I have and Im not sure if it's a motor fault.

    If I use the goto0 command the motor goes to 0 fine if I tell it to go 70 east over shoots to 77 the same thing happens if I tell it to go west but only to 73 the problem is it appears to be overshooting. if I goto say 30 w it does not overshoot by the same amount the further E or W the motor is sent the larger the overshoot.
    I don't know if its a motor fault or not. I have tried to a cheaper Ibox2 and get the same result. both are running openvix
    It's doing my head in I don't want to waste more time trying to set up until I know what the problem is. I have no way of proving what the fault is while I have a professional sat meter is doesn't have motor control

    Your dish isn't following the arc correctly, you will need to align it properly.

    What do you mean it is going over? Do you mean the motor spindle is turning further than the sat position on the arc?

    What is your longitude.
