I have an VU Duo2 with 3 tuners and 4 LNB's. Only one tuner is connected to the diseqc. A Spaun SAR 411 WSG 4:1. I have never had any problems with this before, but (I think) since I started using PLI 6.0 (always updating) this has been an issue.

If I connect the tuners directly to the LNB's, everything works perfect. Tested every tuner and every LNB. I even bought a brand new Spaun diseqc because it was old and I guessed it had done it's  job. But, I was wrong. The new one is exactly the same. The tuner connected to the diseqc can't find any signal at all. Maybe a bug in PLI 6.0? Or any suggestions? By the way, the diseqc tests all failed also. I've tried both manual settings and auto settings, they all fail. Thanks in advance.

The version of enigma in OpenPLi 4 and OpenPLi 6 is the same.

Ok. What do I need to do to make this work? I'm struggling figuring out what's wrong. I have tested everything I can imagine. Cross tested tuners, cables, lnb's and settings. And diseqc is also brand new. Everything works perfect with superb signal when not using diseqc. Using diseqc it's 100% dead. (But I measure 18V on cable). Strange that diseqc always worked with BH image. The only thing I haven't yet tested is more advanced settings for diseqc. Can't find any advance settings for diseqc in PLI 6.0, except maybe plugin "Satellite equipment control"? Tried to install, but get server error: Not found. 

 

Several other feeds also not found. Server down?

 

It's this plugin:

Perhaps a 22kHz tone burst problem?

I was finally able to figure out it was a LNB problem. A connector on the LNB that was connected to the diseqc actually shortcut everything now and then. Tested the other  connectors on the same LNB (quad), works a while, then not. When unplugging this LNB everything works fine :)  So I guess it's water trapped inside or something. Problem finally figured out. Now I need to buy new LNB's. Think it's the best to replace them all. Any suggestions? Megasat ones good and reliable?

Try Tuner configuration instead Sipmle, try Advanced. Let us know the results.

Thanks. But not possible, soon as I connect the faulty LNB to the diseqc now, everything stops working. When I unplug it, everything works perfect (except this one faulty LNB of course). Must be some kind of a shortcut inside that LNB I think. I need a new one. Looking at Megasat LNB's. But not sure what's good and reliable LNB's this days. Any suggestions or experiences?
