Thanks for your help. Having checked voltage, I was stumped to why it  
was not working, and it turns out that one of the recievers in our 8- 
way LNB no longer tunes to the horisontal polarization. (Its been  
tuning to the same vertical polarized channel for the last 2.5 years,  
so I guess something broke.) I tested with another cable, and it was  
able to scan both vertical and horizontally polarized channels.
