Well I'm glad yours works! The frequency changes to BBC4 were what triggered
my problem, I had noticed the radio channels had gone earlier, but my retune
broke a few things so I've started a new 0.24-fixes SVN install. Aside from
this it's gone well.
I think I have chosen a Universal LNB, but it's very difficult to be entirely
sure as the LNB menu doesn't fit on a 720x576 screen (incidentally I don't
understand why it needs to be this big). Certainly selecting the 11.9GHz
signal returns an error saying the IF is too high (says about 2GHz I think).
In dvbscan a 1.5GHz IF is selected, but the signal doesn't tune.
I'll try forcing the LNB to be universal. I assume I have a Universal one
then? The only option on purchase was single or dual.
