Are you setting the info right for a c-band satellite?? Local osc-5150 for c-band I believe. Any switches involved that might have a bad port?

Make sure you have the cable in the back plugged in to Digital LNB IN

Also, LNBF type should be 5150

Just one thing you might try? Hook up the Mercury thru the coolsat's loop out and then scan. I have an ultra that did the same thing. This way you know the lnb has power and the Mercury should find the same things as is being viewed on the coolsat at that time.
