Thanks for your reply,
Unfortunately I dont know much about the LNB.  I went and remove it from the 
dish but the identification sticker has worn away.  It came from a common 18 
inch DirecTV dish.  there are two LNB's in there, I think, because there are 
two coax outs.  I'm only using one at the moment because I dont have a 

Do you thnk this LNB w]ll cause my defines in dvbtune.c to need changing?
