Well, I don't know how good they are in comparison, but I have a Pansat
2700 that does a pretty good job. It'd probably do a better job if I had
a high stability LNB (+/-125kHz). It's been discontinued, but the newer
models should do pretty good. Another note for this unit, it'll drive a
Chapparal co-rotator directly.

I don't think any MPEG receiver will move the dish directly, but you can
get something like a "Technomate V Box" which will drive a C-band dish's
actuator. It uses Diseqc motor commands to cross-reference with the
actuator position that you set for a specific satellite.

I use a PCI card for that ;-)

I would recommend against an HD receiver at this time unless it also can
receive 8PSK transmission and MPEG-4 (which is where everything is most
likely going for HD).
