Which LNB are you using?
Any DiSEqC or 22KHz Switches?
What are your LNB settings in the receivers Sat Setup Menu?

universlal no switchs
You need to set the receiver settings for standard (being as you have a standard LNB) NOT universal. Set the LO to 10750. Good luck!

twisting the lnb will skew it. Try moving the lnb forwards or backwards and see if anything changes. Sadoun's web site has a really good write up on setting up dishes.

if it has blind scan, when in doubt try a blind scan. Let it scan "all" and match the channels up with lyngsat or thelist...or just ask us :)

Sounds weired...
How about this...
1) Are you able to move the dish with the motor? If Yes, we have at least a working connection between motor and receiver.
2) Is the LNB connected the right way to the motor?
3) Are you sure that the dish is pointing to an actual satellite?
4) Does connecting the lnb to the receiver without the motor make any difference in signal quality/strength?

Are you sure it's E*7 ? That would mean you have a Circular LNB, did you switch from the "KUL1 SINGLE DIGITAL STANDARD Linear KU 0.4 dB LNBF"
