HI


I bought a dual [2] LNB with disceq facility.
I can get the Astra 19.2 satellite. The settings show

LNB TYPE: TYPE 1
LNB FREQ: UNIVERSAL
LNB FREQ: UNIVERSAL
DISCEQC: MINI DESC
DISCEQC PORT: 1

This works fine for Astra and I get a really strong signal level and
quality [90%].

I then tried to set up Hotbird by doing the following

1 - program satellites
1 - satellite - selecting Hotbird

these are the setting that show up

Satellite: 013.0E HOTBIRD
LNB TYPE: TYPE 2
TP/POLAR: 12520/V
etc..

The signal strength is 10% level
and 10% quality.

What is the problem?

Why can't I get Hotbird?

What side is in the clamp ASTRA OR HOTBIRD?

My dish is like his

[O] THIS LNB SIDE IS IN THE CLAMP
THE CABLE RUNS IN THE MIDDLE OF LNB
O THIS LNB SIDE IS NOT IN THE CLAMP

On most DiseqC LNBs port number one is the western LNB, so should be lined up on 13E, then port 2 or B should be set up for Astra 19.2.

Both LNBs should be set as Universal, Low band LO 9750 High band LO 10600.

Many thanks for you reply,

since I am a newbie, does that mean the side in the clamp is ASTRA 19.2?

If the below diagram is my satellite



(0) is this Astra in the clamp?
-------------------------
O is this Hotbird?


could it mean that I need swop the clamp side to thisa way round?

I actually solved the monoblock problem for my receiver.

I used a sat finder device to set the dish, and discovered that the lnb in the clamp was hotbird (a) and the other was Astra (:cool:. As I am using a disqec 2.0, I had to set the option to mini disqec on the Echostar 2110 2CI Viaccess receiver.

That solved the problem.

Got brill reception on both hotbird and astra!

Glad you got it sorted.
