This bit defines whether the chip provides a modulated 22kHz signal or just
the envelope at its diseqc output.
Can you track the problem down to this bit? If yes, which LNB supply chip is
on this board?
If i understand the LNBp21 and isl64xx datasheets correctly, these chips will
always use their internal 22kHz oscillator, it can just be turned on and off.
