      This may be a stupid question but if the dish has moved out of alignment why does the channel work ok between around 10.30 am and 7pm? Seems to coincide with the increase in temperature when the sun is on the dish and as it cools down?
      Tonight it didn't go off until after the nightly 6.58pm twitch that bbc2 seems to have.
      I'm sure a service call will be needed in the end but am hoping to get past christmas or avoid it altogether if I can and I know next to nothing about it all!

      Dools26, signal fade in the evening is quite common, and if your dish alignment is not optimised, or the LNB itself is ageing, your reception of channels from Eurobird and/or the Astra cluster will vary, especially as atmospherics change at night. The solution to your problem is to have the dish and/or the LNB attended to. Nothing lasts forever.

      Must have been the weather messing with the signal as all seems to be better for the moment.

      Cheers for the advice

      Remember, if it's happened once, it could do so again. Keep an eye on it. You may yet need to do something about it. Winter has only just begun.
