Since you need a C-Band LNB, which is not commonly used in
Europe for DVB-S, I doubt that many people have tried it.
I guess dvbtune does not use the correct offsets for the LNB.
The driver gets the transponder frequency minus the offset frequency
of the LNB as parameter,  so you have to see if you can set the offset
frequency in dvbtune by program parameters, or you have to go into the
code and change the offset. You may also try to switch inversion on.
