    Over the last couple of weeks ive been getting 'No Signal Being Recieved Error 25 on the discovery channels. Now again they deceide to come on.

    I also get the same on bbc news 24. All other channels are perfect & signal strength, as it always has been about halfway.

    Ive tried another box & its still the same. Sky want £65 for an 'engineer' but i dont think its worth it as i rarely watch it I might even cancel altogether.

    Any ideas what else it could be. Would the threat of cancelling bring an 'engineer' out for free.

    In my experience "Error code 25" is usually relating to the signal from the dish being corrupted before reaching the box, some channels are usually ok but the weaker ones just kick up the error 25 message. Most of the times I have encountered this it has been the F Connector that connects the co-axial cable to the box not being correctly fitted, like wise it could always be at the LNB also but is more likely near the digibox as they are more likely to be moved etc.

    Of course it can be a multitude of other things but this is usually the cause.

    1 x Sky HD, 2 x Sky +, 1 x Sky Digital,

    Hope this helps anyone...:smashin:
