The LNB (low-noise blocking) module on a satellite antenna captures the satellite programming signals and channels them to the satellite receiver devices. These modules are angled to have an unobstructed view, or line-of-sight, in the direction of the satellite. A satellite scan can then be run by the satellite receiver to fix or set the LNB frequency to the satellite. The process is pretty straightforward.

Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Plug the RG-6 cable into the "Cable" port on the base of the main satellite antenna assembly, just below the LNB module, then plug the other end of the cable into the "Antenna" port on the back of the satellite receiver.

  2. 2

    Press the "Power" button on the satellite receiver remote control to turn it on, then press the "Power" button on the television to turn it on.

  3. 3

    Press the "Program" (or equivalent) button on the receiver to open the "Program Setting" screen on the television.

  4. 4

    Press the "Run Scan" (or equivalent) button on the receiver remote control to initiate the satellite scanning process. The receiver will automatically run the scan and set the frequency of the LNB module. Once the process is complete, a completion prompt will appear on the display screen.
