How do I know if my DTH LNB is working?

Turn on the meter and check the signal strength. If you don’t get a reading move the dish either right or left about 3 degrees at a time to see if you can locate a signal. If you do locate a signal, even if the strength is weak, your LNB is working. If you are unable to find a signal your LNB isn’t working.

Touch one lead of the multimeter to the metal part of the antenna and touch the other lead to the metal core of the cable. The ohms reading should be zero. If the resistance is greater than that, the antenna or cable is damaged, which is preventing a signal from reaching the reception device.

Had a rg cable running from a good lnb into a receiver, the good lnb on a dish aimed at a strong TP. The rg cable has its outer conductor cut. the center conductor exposed. The test lnb is placed over the rg cable. The rg cable’s magnetic field transmits the signal from the good lnb into the probe of the test lnb.

There are lots of different types of “universal LNB” and contrary to as it sounds not all LNB’s are universal with all satellite dishes.
