I just dug into my version of VLC on Linux to see where the LNB
settings are.  They are well hidden.  To find them, from the menu go
to Tools > Preferences.  At the bottom left of the window, find the
"Show settings" box and click on "All".  Then go to Input / Codecs >
Access Modules > DTV to bring up the "Digital Television and Radio"
settings page.  Use the scroll bar to scroll that window all the way
to the bottom to see the "Satellite Equipment Control" settings. Those
are the ones that control the LNB and DiSEqC.
