Thank you both Ernst and David,
PuTTY to check the SR1 configuration as suggested, I was presented
with an "unable to access serial port" error message. I am still
using Win 7 Ultimate, and the Device Manager fails to bring up the
"Ports" option, even viewing the hidden items. I have spent much of
the afternoon attempting to recover the com ports details without
success. They appear to have vanished entirely. I shall have a break
over the weekend and try again next week!
Your assistance has been much appreciated.

Terence and David,
yes indeed according to the SR1 Manual F) LNB Power lets you
select OFF, 13V and 18V (18V needed for H). If this does not work
maybe setting up the second plug RF2 for EUMETCast might still
AFAIK not all SR1 models sold let you do that. IIRC a "cheaper"
GEO sold model could not be used to switch for Dual Mode and
Single Mode. For above case you should be able to use Single Mode
EUMETSAT might help. There is also an interesting note in the
EUMETSAT published SR1 setup guide on page 6. Has anybody reading
this ever run such an EUMETCast reception configuration (I doubt
N-B: Even when working in single demodulator mode you can have two
RF inputs in redundancy mode - you can have two antennas and if
one LNB fail the SR1 will automatically switch to the other one.
