Isn't that better (and easier to deal with) than having the problem

Elevation tracker has been fitted but not yet active.
I hate to flought my ignorance but what are "DiSEqC" commands?
Already got some bbq action, much earlier than I expected, lnb's ok,
polarotor fried. Timers will push dish west in the morning and east
afternoon to limit my exposure until thorough protection is in place.

DiSEqC is a digital communication protocol developed to provide control of
satellite devices such as motors and switches through a coaxial cable. Here
is a link to the technical papers, specs and test tools:
The idea of an actuated lnb support certainly seems feasible and would
certainly optimize each operation when placed in the focal point.
I currently use the V-Box II to control a linear actuator on a 10' dish with
a variety of DiSEqC enabled satellite receivers and pci cards.

What keeps the LNB from melting? I guess you just have to be careful
where you aim it during the day. Perhaps you'll put a temperature
sensor on it hooked up to a warning alarm?

I don't think it can be protected.
The LNB will be destroyed in seconds, depending
on the quality of the reflective surface.
