    Hello All
    I have a question on how to set the correct frequencies when use User Defined on the satellite setup screen on Enigma Receivers.
    I always get confused on it, I need to know which frequency should I input that will cover all the Ku satellites.
    LoF/L
    LoF/H
    Threshold
    On the Blind Scan Screen what frequencies should be enter for Start and Stop frequencies.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.
    Chewie

    Hi Chewie. I was told originally that circular was for standard ku lnb with the V/H polarity. Then i saw it 10750 for all three L/H/threshold. Then it was L/10750 H/10750 Threshold/11700. So i too am a bit unsure what exactly to set it at. I am running Edison satdream NA. Maybe we can get this found out here.

    LoF/L 9750
    LoF/H 10600
    Threshold/switch 11700
    There is a built in 22khz switch in the LNB. When you select the Universal LO setting the 22khz will set to auto and you won't be able to use other 22khz switches in series with that LNB

    You can start at 9750 and stop at 12200 if you like.

    Remember the LOF settings are determined by the LNB you have attached, not the receiver and not the satellite.

    A Standard Ku LNB would be LOF 10750 Most DBS circular LNBs are LOF 11250

    There is no L and H or threshold Just a single LO 10750 read this LNB LO Frequency - 101

    For a Standard LO 10750 LNBF on an Enigma2 image other than The North American Project, select LNB type: Circular.

    That is all.

    For The North American Project, select KU - 10750.

    If you want to use the User Setting: Low: 10750, High: 10750, Switch Point:11700

    High LO: 11250
    Low LO: 11250
    LOF: 12200 ( but this really doesn't matter if the 22KHz is off)
