Hey Ian!
I'm currently having EXACTLY the same problem as you. I can't go above
12.650 GHz. However, I think I have found the problem. I currently have
version 3 of the lt8700 software, which has a tuning range of 2050 MHz.
Therefore, if the Ku-High band is set to 10.6 GHz in LNB settings, which
it is for a universal, you can only go as high as 12.65 (10600 + 2050 =
12650). Apparently, you need the latest version of the software - v4.0
or v4.1. I'll let you know when I solve my problem.
