Example of settings.
Figure 10. "LNB settings" screen
6.3.1 LNB #1-4 tables
The “LNB #1-4” tables consist of following parameters:
"Title" - the user entered description of corresponding RF input. This title will be used in the SAT input selection box of
"Channel stacking" table (see Figure 12, section 6.4).
"LNB LO frequency" – set the LNB local oscillator lower frequency in megahertz. Use 9750 MHz for the universal converter.
"LNB HI frequency" – set the LNB local oscillator upper frequency in megahertz. This parameter is enabled only when the
"LNB power" is set to "Auto". Use 10600 MHz for the universal converter.
“LNB Power” - power supply of the converter – can be set to “Off”, “Auto”, “13V”, “18V”, “13V/22kHz”, “18V/22kHz”.
If “Auto” is selected, power supply voltage of the converter is chosen according to set polarization – 18V Horizontal, 13V
Vertical; if the “Frequency” of the satellite exceeds the value F=(950+LNB Hi+2150+LNB Lo)/2, the 22 kHz signal is switched
ON and “LNB Hi freq.” is selected.
For example: LNB Hi=10,600, LNB Lo=9750, then F=(950+10,600+2150+9750)/2=11,725MHz. When power supply of
the converter is set to value different from "Auto" - "LNB HI frequency", “Satellite”, "Polarization" rows are disabled and the
"LNB LO frequency" value is used for IF frequency calculation.
ATTENTION! In the mode"Auto" all transponders of selected input must be less/equal or more this threshold
value. Otherwise, use manual LNB settings.
“Satellite” - DISEQC command is used to select the satellite when the switch that supports DISEQC protocol is present.
Possible commands: “None”, “SAT A”, “SAT B”, “SAT C”, “SAT D”. This parameter is enabled only when the "LNB power"
is set to "Auto".
“Polarization” – set the polarization of converter. Polarization can be “Horizontal” or “Vertical”.
“Update” - button for set up changed parameters listed above (see Figure 11).
