      Have you taken the faceplate off to check the connections? Poor connections are very common for this type of plate due to the lack of room behind making the cables pull out when screwing plate to the wall.

      no comunal using triax system
      Triax is a communal television distribution supplier. You will have to find out from the owner if there is a dish connected to the cable outlets in your apartment and how many feeds you have connected. If your flats are very new, they may not be connected yet. What are your neighbours getting, any with Sky connected?

      I'm also with woodster RE checking the connections, they're often put in by builders who arent aware of the sensitivities of satellite signals - if even one strand of the sheath conductor is touching the copper core you'll get nothing. If you've checked these and they're fine (check it whilst the faceplate is off the wall so you know the connections havent come out) then as others have suggested it wont be connected to the headend which your management company will need to sort out.
