Ku frequencies on a DSR 922

Since there is no channels standard for Ku satellites is there a way to
determine what frequencies are being tuned?

I see the 922's "channels" and can slide the frequency + or - 20 mhz
from the zero mark of that channel. But that still doesn't tell what
frequency I'm on.

Thanks,
Take care,
Rich

Options 6-0-5-Right-Right (Diag screen C, in the middle of the 3rd
line), is the tuned LNB frequency.

That's not what I'm looking for.

A frequency for a specific transmission is (for example) 12065. How can
I tune to that specific frequency?

Thanks for the help.

Take care,

You wanted to kmow what frequency you are on. You never said you
wanted to manually tune it.

Now, Options 6-7-7-8-1 will take you to a menu to manually tune the IF
frequency (you have to do the math to convert RF to IF), but that is
good only for tuning in a signal and downloading maps, not for tuning
in any video or audio servce.

Sorry for the confusion.

My old IRD had a programmable setting to change the displayed frequency
on the Ku "channels from +/- a baseline zero to showing the actual tuned
frequency. You're saying the DSR 922 has nothing like that?

Thanks,

Take care,
Rich

The other though I had...

Is there any place in the 922 documentation, or some place on line that
gives a chart for how the "channels" on Ku translate into actual video
or audio service frequencies?

Take care,
Rich
