My understanding is that this needs to be done through the diseqc control:
via i2c control of the lnbp21, yo can either turn the tone permanently on
or let it be controlled by a pin - through the channel decoder.

Could it be that you somehow just forgot to choose the upper band in your tuning
data / dvb application?
Sorry, i don't have a dish - so i need to completely rely on your feedback.
