I changed the measat lnb from a normal ku to a extra gain prime focus lnb. After rotating the lnb, I managed to lock on with satfinder:
Symbol rate 30000
Polarity vertical/circular right
What does it mean when I can lock on to both vertical and circular right polarity?
The main advantage is you don't need to optimize the LNB setting, Anywhere will do. Most standard C band LNB's come with a fibre plate, this slides into two slots or ridges on the inside [throat] of the LNB, this will convert the LNB for Circular use.
With Ku-band there is no plate an a dedicated LNB is required, Pay TV servers the like of "Dish Direct" and "Prime" use this system. Again main advantage is the LNB does not require adjustment.
In the old Analogue days many receivers [digitone, echostar [ had 4 LNB settings Horizontal, Vertical, Left and right polarization. Today with the advent of digital, Vertical and lefthand polarization use the same settings, as does Horizontal and righthand polarization.
