There are a couple of within-the-decoder LNBf settings that need to be carried out before your decoder is ready to detect satellite signal. In fact, before tracking your favourite satellite 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, This tutorial will do justice to how the within the decoder LNBf settings for Ku Band and C Band frequencies are done.
As an installer, your job is not complete if you haven’t scanned for the channels you just received the signal for. In a layman’s language, you need to set the specific LNB settings from within your decoder before you can scan the channels.
In most cases, the default is for a Ku Band LNB. Now, what happens when you are scanning C Band channels? D you know that your signal quality might not pop-up if you have the wrong within-the-decoder LNBf settings?
Within-the-decoder LNBf settings
Basically, a C band LNB is different in design from Kuku band LNB . Similar fashion, the within decoder lnb settings for both ku band and c band varies. In addition, 99% of FTA decoders will come with ku band lnb settings by default. Some few exceptions are like Gsky decoder doesn’t have these settings by default. 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”
