    I have purchased a monoblock lnb in order to receive 19.2 and 23.5. I am looking for some help with the settings here. Any help appreciated.

    Is that all I have to do. Do I need to specify the satellites ? the bottom 2 values are as follows
    Set voltage and 22KHz yes
    Send DISeqC only on satellite change No

    Are these correct?

    I'm trying this on an 80cm dish using a 4.3 degree monoblock. Any Experience of this abu? Difficult or not would you say?

    A monoblock LNB in essence is just two LNBs in one housing and a built-in diseqc switch. It will work, but dishes have different sizes, so it is impossible to tweak adjustment properly because they are one block. I have only ever used a monoblock for 13/19. Provided the dish is aligned properly, it is easy. Just clamp the correct LNB. Your response in the other thread shows a good understanding of the principles of multi-LNB setup.

    Thanks abu. Set this up today and worked fine. I have a perfectly acceptable single on both 19.2 and 23.5 (about 75%) so job done.
