Can anyone identify what sort of LNB this is ?  I've bought a new house and I want to get my Vu+ Duo plugged in but I've not idea what settings to enter in for the LNB.

You can see it's a bit weathered, I'm assuming it is Sky provided ?

Correct. And if its one of the original sharps, it may well be dead already (they died a lot)

Theres only 2 used here. 10750 and 11300  So you got a 50/50 chance of getting it right. Assuming its still aligned it'll work off the bat with 1, but not the other (or the range of 10750-11300 if it allows selection)

As Brunzy says, it's most likely a 10750 job. Note that a lot of these have been failing so keep that at the back of your mind. LNB's are very cheap these days for a basic model all the same...

thanks!

It's just a single LNB yes ?

A quick google on partial info I get this as the specs :

SHARP 
Ku-LNBF 
BS1DAQ412A 
L.O.:10.75GHz 
11.7-12.75/12.25/12.75GHz 
950-2000/1500-2000MHz

I think I can get things going now ... assuming the LNB is alive :-)

Thanks!

True, but if you buy a stock standard one you'll have to buy a new throat too

Mark: thanks!

Technically it's a dual, (which is why it's so wide), and uses a 22kHz tone to switch to the 2nd unit.
From a practical point of view though, it defaults to the first one in the absence of a tone, and this operates entirely as a single.

So yeah, you'll be right with those settings.
The alignment (assuming you haven't touched it) should still be fine for Optus D1, which carries both Sky and freeview.

Good luck.

10750 LO frequency.

22kHz will switch to the secondary throat (C1/D3 assuming the dish is pointing in the original place).
