      Loss of some, channels....

      Evening folks,

      New here so please be kind...

      I am having a problem with my Sky+ box. I have lost some, not all of my channels. C5, Sky1 main and some other history, Nat Geo etc..

      I get msg up saying 'No signal received' and either 28 or 30 for my information.

      Could this be a faulty LNB? if so could someone out there recommend a new one and if you can are they easy to replace and do you need to set them up?

      Sky either want 65, or 11.35 a month for 12 months to come and have a look at it.

      One of my other options was to add a Freesat box to it for use in our bedroom, is this also possible?

      Regards

      Tony

      Yes but more likely a faulty Digibox (what's the make and model number on the label?) or a faulty cable (how old is it?).

      Yes, in theory, if you have a spare LNB output (and you almost certainly have, since you have Sky+).
