a data point is that it will not lock onto any signals with a vertical 
but will lock on to signals with a horizontal polarization (at the 
second attempt - not the first).
the latter sounds like a timing issue.

i have 5 other receivers and 2 dvb-s cards which have no problems with 
the signal coming from the multiswitch to which they are all attached.

any help or even ideas of what to do to diagnose the problem out there?
