There is two kind of LEDs in those sticks. One is power LED that lights 
all the time when device is powered and the other lock LED that lights 
only when demodulator is locked to the valid channel. I assume your 
device has lock LED that should light only when device is locked to the 
valid channel. Controlling LEDs is sometimes possible by the driver 
software and sometimes not at all. Don't care LED before device is not 
working.

I think it is better to strong known good signal and test device against 
it to see if everything is almost right. After that you can try to find 
settings to reach better receiving sensitivity.
