I have four cables going from my LNB to a multiswitch. Three cables
go from the multiswitch to the DVB-S cards.

If any of the four cables going to the Multiswitch were wrong,
wouldn't the channels not work at all? I've looked thru the different
channel settings, but could not find anything obvious, which would
differentiate the good and the bad channels ...

Any ideas what else I can test?
