HRD Rotor works several ways. First, it integrates with HRD logbook and when a QRZ lookup is done, the beam heading displays in the ALE window. Clicking it causes the rotor to move to that heading. You can also put in the callsign of the station and move the antenna to the resolved position, or choose the country to do the same. You can also use the Grid Square.
DM780 does not have a direct interface to the Rotor program. Maybe a feature that can be requested.
Of course, automatic beam direction control assumes you have a rotor with an integrated computer interface. I use a HyGain T2X with a Idiom Press card. Works great.
Hope this has answered you questions.
