Hi, Ive got ProgDVB setup on my pc with a dvb-s card, im using a sky 12750Mhz dualthroat lnb and cant get any signal at all on D1 Freeview, but gets signal fine on C1 Aurora Channels which are all encrypted.  Other dvb software ive used like altdvb and dvbdream works no problems, but ProgDVB there is no easy option to simply "turn off the 22khz switch", hence can only get a signal from C1 not D1, ProgDVB works fine on the older sky lnb's 11300Mhz but not the 12750Mhz dual throat ones.  Is there any specific settings I need to use? or is my only option to go back to a single 11300Mhz lnb or change my software?

are you sure that's the frequency? I thought that the dual throat LNB's were 10750?

if you set it to just a bog standard LNB, it should work, as D1 has the tone off. Without the right card, C1 is useless anyhow.

Allstarnz is correct re the LNB LO of 10750 for a dual Sky LNB.
