There a couple of within-the-decoder settings that needs to be carried out before your decoder is ready to detect satellite signal. In fact, before tracking your preferred channels, there are some basic decoder settings that you must manipulate otherwise you will put yourself in a position whereby you will not detect any signal. In this tutorial I shall be focussing on ku band vs c band satellite anttena / LNB settings that is carried out within the decoder.
Just like a cband lnb varies from a ku band lb, in a similar fashion, the within decoder lnb settings for both ku band and c band varies. 99% of fta decoders will come with ku band lnb settings by default. the few exceptions are Powervu auto roll decoders like Gsky and co. I will be teaching you what to change and what to leave while setting up your lnb type, freq on your decoder. The most important parameter here is the “LNB FREQUENCY”
C BAND AND KU BAND LNB SETTINGS EXPLAINED
Configuration For Ku Band LNB
TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWINGS
- LNB Power: the LNB power should always be on.
- Lnb Type: for KU band LnB your LNB type must be set to Universal
- LNB Frequency: the most important manoeuvring is this; Ku band LNB is 9.750/10.600
Configuration for c band lnb
LNB Power: ON
Lnb Type: for Cband Lnb your Lnb type should be Single
LNB frequency: 5.150
