back on the machine and thinking about it twice ...

The Quad works for me as well on the upper LNB connector, despite of
that I previously used the lower one successfully with RF loopthrough
from an external receiver.

So, in case of the Quad, just let it be autodetected and try on the
first adapter and upper LNB connector.

Even more fun :)

Cheers,
Hermann
