Writing from South Africa i purchased the above receiver in the UK.Ku band is fine, but when switching to C band ,using LNB single freq 5150 or OCS 5150/5750 there is no signal /quality.I have tested my dish and C band LNB with another receiver and that is working.Can someone please give me some advice here,what i could be doing wrong.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Perhaps the fact that the TMS 1000D is a Ku band receiver may have a bearing on the situation. I have to admit that although I know some receivers can handle both I was not aware that this could but am not clued up on C band at all as i have never used it. I assume it all depends on the intermediate frequency the low noise block converter converts down to.
