In general I'm having problem getting anything above 12000mhz, what could this mean?

What kind of LNBF do you have? What does it say on it, any numbers?

If its a Standard the L.O. should be 10750

If its a Universal the L.O. should be 11250

Double check you have the L.O. set correctly for the LNBF you have!

That HAS to be set at 10750 as the L.O. thats your problem :)

So linear side L.O. = 10750

Circular side L.O. = 11250

Change the L.O. then rescan the satellite, should get all the channels at exactly where they should be as posted in Lyngsat.com

Still no go with the INVACOM. Could it be an issue with the elevation?

10750 is defiantly the right L.O. for the linear side of the LNBF. Keep it there!

So you deleted all the channels from that satellite, changed to the correct L.O. then re-scanned.

Could be a pointing issue then, usually if you get one (weak) TP. peaked for signal all the rest will be there, they are all that the same elevation.
