AFAIK there are only HD channels on this transponder. FEC is 5/6 
instead of the more common 3/4 for all other transponders. And that's 
the only difference. I do not understand why this could be a problem 
for tuning to the transponder.
And I tried to tune to frequencies between 11485 and 11505 MHz, whereas 
the freq is advertised as 11495MHz. With no luck: not a single lock.
For the other transponders lock is fast and reliabke.
One more thing, the symbol rate is the same across all transponders, 
Do you have an idea about solving this, or at least how to get useful
