"I agree Carole, and I am a technician with experience in satellite tracking systems in marine environments. The manual is vague and not very helpful. I cannot for the life of me find where in the menus you are supposed to set up the LNB parameters.…"

"Without the TV connected you won't be able to see the S7070 Menu on screen so you won't be able to check all parameters are correct. Most likely the LNB setting in the S7070 needs changing."
