Help needed

Trying to instal a new..... well, please read on as the technicalities are the OH's domein :

Humax Foxsat HDR, new twin-outlet LNB (Inverto Premium Black), new second co-ax cable from LNB to Foxsat, target satellite is the Astra 2 group. The old single outlet LNB works fine and receives all the channels and it also works OK on either of the co-ax cables (original cable and the new cable installed yesterday).

The new Inverto twin-outlet LNB picks up channels transmitted by a Horizontal transponder (eg BBC1 and BBC 2) but nothing transmitted by a Vertical transponder (eg ITV1, BBC3). I have tried different skew positions for the LNB but that doesn't bring up any of the vertical channels. I therefore think that the new LNB must be faulty unless there is anything else that you think might be the cause. I am no expert on satellite reception!

Thanks in advance if you have any bright ideas.

Re: Help needed

Something not correctly done in the setup of your satellite receiver ?

(not a specialist too...)
