After re-reading your post about the frequency got you a carrier and digital
lock, it reminded me of something.  When I was first trying frequencies, I
was accidentally entering copy protected frequencies in Hz.  Believe it or
not, I was getting both carrier and digital lock even though the frequency
was incorrect.  This was true even though I was the frequency translated to
the hundreds of GHz range.  That is most likely not valid.  I am not sure
what channel you are tuning, but make sure it is one that you know is
clear-QAM.  Do you have a current backend with valid clear-QAM frequencies
in it?  Where are you getting your frequencies from?  You may be able to
verify the copy protection status and frequency via your STB's service
menus.  I am fairly confident that your frequency will need to be in XXX000
