Have the BUD up and working but am only getting a fraction of the channels listed. For example on 99 west G16 I only get WAPA with no sound. ON 97 west G19 I get all the channels. on 101 West I only get golden eagle. When doing a scan with my FTA box it ask for type of lnb the first 2 choices are for dish so I know its not them. Then comes 11500, universal, universal 2, 5150 and 5170. Any Idea as to which I should use for a 15 year old C band lnb? I get different signal strengths on each of the first 4.

Next when I set it to do a blind scan on G 16 it starts out with a transponder in the 10000 range but on the list it looks like it should be looking in the 3700 range or is that a number for something else?

On the old analog box do i need to do a scan on each channel, switch the pol. and rescan.

Any place to find where to set the skew for G16 or does it even matter?

Thanks for any help you can give.

C Band LNB Freq would be 5150, Transponder Freq have 4 digits
Ku band has 5 digits.

Most Sats have both C and Ku
Receivers need to have a Sat defined for Each:
Galaxy 16 C
Galaxy 16 Ku

Yes, kinda. If you Analog is controlling the polarity, make a scan with it one Channel 1, then switch to Channel 2 and make another scan.
