Zgemma H7S+Superjack V-Box positioner issues

As the title suggests I would like to expose to you a problem
that I have with the Zgemma H7S, purchased two days ago, with my motorized
system, I also read a couple of posts in various forums but I didn't
dig a spider out of the hole, I will also make a premise: I have a
motorized system consisting of a 180 cm Channel Master dish since 1989,
then it was combined with Chaparral MC115 with built-in
positioner, after many years I bought a Nokia Mediamaster MM 9500 and
commanded the Channel Master with a serial interface connected between
RS-232 of the two decoders and I used only the MC115 as to positioner to move
the dish, then the Chaparral passed away I bought a Superjack V-Box
positioner together a DM 800 HD se, I used it until yesterday and it is
still working, I set in Usals mode by entering only the
latidutine and longitude it has always found all satellites, now I
have made the same settings on the Zgemma H7S, it moves east to west
but doesn't stop on the selected statellite, it always reaches at the end of the
stroke to east or west, I have tried several images, Openatv, Openpli,
Openspa, Openvix, Egami and finally PurE2 6.5, but all with the same results,
the dish moves but doesn't stop, I put the dish cable on the Dreambox
and everything works fine.Have you some advice to help me?Sorry for my
bad english and happy new year to all.

Sorry, I don't have a motor for a long time but...

If the same settings does not work - one must try something else...

If USALS doesn't work, try DiSEqC 1.2 and see...

Perhaps there was something new in the code, since you first bought DB800HD SE?

Or maybe the H7 drivers/code might be problematic? I don't know... Delfi has the motor setup but needs a few days to recover from yet another earthquake...

However, as a principle, it seems to me that we should not presume things - so dig in, question everything, don't take it for granted, try other possibilities - and I hope you figure it out...

And good luck!

Healthy New Year! :)
