Problems with Dreambox 7000S and Twinhan 1030 PC-card

I just got a Dreambox and it's now working pretty good, but I'm having trouble getting it to work together with my Twinhan 1030 PC-card (connected through the loop-through). For some reason this card seems to overrule the Dreambox so I can only view one transponder at a time if the PC card is plugged in. In addition the motor won't move so I have to unplug my PC card when I don't use it. My old tuner rather overruled the PC card (which was more logical) so I could surf as much as I wanted on that without caring about the card. Is there a way to fix this?

You should have a toggle in the DVB software to switch off the LNB power from the Twinhan.

It is, but for some reason they still seem to interfere with each other. The Dreambox refuses to move the motor while I have the PC card inserted. There isn't a setting on the Dreambox that should be changed? I.e. "Use Motor Input Power" - or the voltage settings on the satellites?

[Btw. if it matters I also have a third tuner connected to the LNB-out of the PC card. But all of this worked fine with my old Kaon tuner that wasn't affected by the other tuners at all so this seems to be a problem with the Dreambox.]

The only thing I've looped through the dreambox is my spectrum analyser, but didn't have the power switched on and no 22khz tone, haven't tried it with the SS2 inline. Don't really know what to suggest, but I always favour a twin or quad LNB, rather than use the loopthrough.

It's a minefield. Every receiver seems to be different. I wouldn't think twice about getting a twin LNB. In fact, that's exactly what I did!

My Dreambox 7000S and my Skystar2 are living very happily together. ;)
