I can find 61 - 119 on my 18" , bought a 76cm the other day and I can't find sh*t. Can someone verify that my settings are correct.

LNB type : Standard
LNB Freq: 10750
22k : OFF
Diseq : OFF
TP : 11867

I point and nothing with these settings , am I missing something. I'm trying to tune a couple of international chans on FTA / Telstar 5 / I 97 etc

check your linear LNB, is it really 10750. It should be printed on the LNB as Lo.Freq xxxx. Somtimes people have a Lo.Freq 9750/10600, but don't know it. With telestar5 it's very hard to get the signal, so be very patient when allinning. Other than that check your cables and connectors, and if the mast is balanced. Also check your elevation and azymuth angles according to your location.

Your settings are wrong
with Tels5 97 you need a linear LNB not a circular If you are able to get 61,5 and 119 that meen that your LNB is circular and can't have 97
LNB type:Universal
Lo frequency: Try 10750 or 10600 depend on your LNB

yes I know that , I mentioned I get 61-119 on my 18" not the 76cm, the 76cm does have the proper narrower style lnb. I'm sure it was my settings and I'll try again
