I am pretty sure the LNB settings are the problem.  The LO is not supported in the drivers at all.  The LNB itself is not even supported.  Extra settings and configurations must be added for any non-universal USA Ku band LNB to work.  My LNBf is an USA Ku Band LNBf and therefore will have different settings.  For example, the local oscillator frequency is 10.75GHz, which differs from all previous settings in the drivers.  The polarity is also linear only.  The specs for my LNBf (which is a common configuration for most US Ku Band LNBfs--with the noise figure differing between 0.3dB, 0.5dB, 0.6dB and 0.7dB depending on the maker) are here: http://www.dmsiusa.com/xtreme2_specs.htm

Please add support for this type of LNB.
