Wide Band LNB and UK dSCR/dCSS settings for HD TAB 7 Lite & Evo and HD TAB 4 Touch

The Wide Band LNB has only two polarizations: Vertical and Horizontal. The concept of high and low band disappears with these LNBs since low and high bands are stacked together on a wider band: 230-2350 MHz. There is only one Local Oscillator at 10410 MHz for both polarizations. Wideband is often associated to Multiswitches and LNBs that support dCSS and/or dSCR signal protocols in order to feed, with one coax cable, multiple STBs or one SKYQ™ STB.

1) HD TAB 7 LITE and EVO:

WIDE BAND SETUP

Update your meter with the latest available Firmware: greater than version 3.14 and upload to your meter the AS28SQ.chn memory PLAN with the S.M.A.R.T. PC interface programme. You may find these files in Rover’s web site www.roverinstruments.com in the SW UPDATE  area.

– Press the “Volume” key to access the configuration menu) and select SAT, set the “LNB L.O.” as “WIDE BAND” (ref. fig. 1);

Fig.1

– Press the PLAN key and select the “AS28SQ” MEM plan, this file has all Vertical and Horizontal ASTRA 28 transponders grouped together. This will make it easier to work with a WB LNB (ref. Fig. 2);

Fig.2

– Go to SPECTRUM or SAT measurement mode and start working with the WB LNB.

LOGGER with a WB LNB:

To run a logger with a WB LNB use the “SOTP&GO” logger feature. In the main menu select the “MEMORY” icon and from the resulting MENU, select for the “SAVE DATA LOGGER” entry “TV&WbandLNB” (ref. fig.3). Then follow the instructions the meter will display.

NOTES:

a) You will be able to measure all transponders within the converted “L” band frequency of the meter: 930 and 2600 MHZ, If by any reason a transponder frequency is out of the meter frequency range, “12660?0” will appear as a frequency value for that transponder;
b) The “A28SQF” MEM plan transponders contains only those transponders that are inside the converted “L” band of the meter;
c) If you select any other satellite in the pre-memorized “SATELLITE PLAN” list, you may work with a Wide Band LNB but transponders will not be grouped as Vertical and Horizontal. You may do this grouping by utilizing the SMART programme.

dSCR SETUP:

a) From the main menu, select the “SPECIAL” icon;
b) select “dSCR-SKY UK” LNB TYPE for “SAT SCR/dCSS” (ref. fig.4);

c) Then select one of the 16 available USER frequencies;
d) Go to SPECTRUM or MEAS mode and start measuring;
e) On the bottom left side of the screen, the selected User Band will be displayed during your measuring activities (ref. fig 2);
f) To test all user bands at once, select ”TEST” (ref. fig.4) and all 16 frequencies will be checked as described in the User’s Guide.
