Can I use a H-H motor with a DM 500 if the distance for my room to dish is about 80 meters?

80m even if using a GOOD quality CT100 full copper cable the loss of signal / distance will not be good, and if its cheap cable good luck to you. :)
the other problem will of course be the well known issue of DM500 "clone" boxes ability to move motors on a 5 meter cable let alone 80m of the stuff.

My advice > try and get CT125. or move the dish - box closer together.
