LNB types are : Legacy Twin(1 or 2). These are OEM(original equipment)found on Dish 500 and Bell ExpressVu products. Standard mainly used on DirectTV and most aftermarket products. Applications using 121 , AMC-4,and T5 use a Universal type .
LNB Frequency Legacy Twin , Standard is 11250 GHz .Universal Standard is 10.750 Ghz high 9.750 Ghz low, A Universal is 9.750 Ghz low and 10.600 GHZ high .
3. DiSEqC switch: The switch will be a SW-41 supplied in the Viewsat kit .Ports 1,2,3,4 should correspond to the input you have wired each LNB to.
4.Legacy Switch: If you are using a DiSEqC switch then the Legacy switch will be off. Applications using OEM Legacy LNBs will most likly use a SW-21 application. If this is the case check to see which LNB corresponds to Dish 1, Dish 2. A simple way to determine this if you have an existing install is to run a "Switch Check" on your original equipment when complete this test will show what is Dish 1 and 2 .
5. Satellite: Select the proper salellite that you are on. The satellite you have selected should correspond to the information found in the upper right hand cornor of the menu screen. For example if you selcet IA-5 you will see IA-5 appear in the upper right hand cornor of the scree. NOTE:This only occurs after you aquire signal and have green bars showing( the information in the upper right hand cornor is from the digital identifier of the actual satellite transmission therefore you need to aquire signal to get a read). If you select IA-5 but the upper right hand cornor says AMC-4 then you do not have your dish aquiring the right signal. If say for example you have another dish pointed at AMC-4 then you have probably set the port incorrectly designated. You can go to DiSEqC switch settings and correct this problem.
