      Satellite reception problem

      A couple of days ago I lost my SKY tv reception. At first I thought the signal was being blocked by a large crane on a nearby construction site. In the "services" area under 7 I found that I had some stations listed and could in fact view these. This I assumed meant I had a signal (as confirmed by the strength showing on the signal meter).

      On screen I get the message FOR YOUR INFORMATION 18 - no satellite signal is being received. I canīt find reference to this on SKYīs home pages. The fact that I have manually stored some 30+ stations means that I have a satellite signal.

      Does anyone have any bright ideas? I thought it might be about the new viewing cards but I have no message on screen to insert new card.

      Help gratefully received.

      Thanks

      Have you tried switching it off at the wall counting to 30 and switching it on again?

      Yes, tried all of that. Through the internet I found the frequency codes for most of the channels I use and loaded them manually through "add channels" but for others where I couldnīt find a code it still reads "no satellite signal is being received" which is not true as I have some 30 manually installed channels!! Guess a call to SKY tomorrow is called for

      Re: Satellite reception problem

      In sheer desperation unplugged every lead to all tv, video and satellite box and left off for 3 minutes - hey presto!!!! It didnīt work simply shutting off the satllite box. Ah well a lesson learned and all OK but need to tell SKY of change of address to ensure that I get the new card when they isses them.
