The localhost address is - it is local to that PC and hence
must be being provided by something on that PC.  So you need to find
out what software is providing IPTV via localhost:22000, presumably by
using your DVB-S2 tuners.  This command should tell you:

sudo netstat -pa | grep 22000

Then you need to find the LNB settings that are being used by that
