    Hi mate.

    Mine just went off and I'm near Cambridge too, maybe the snow? I had problems before last year when we had heavy snow, although the snow has stopped now.

    You tried calling Sky?

    Typical - Thursday's I record loads of TV at 10pm! Better start looking for repeats.

    I certainly am not joking. Last year it went off just as Man Utd V Liverpool was on!

    I'll give Sky a call, they will tell me. Now just to find a number to call.

    Mine started working again a few minutes ago.

    Spoke to Sky who asked if it had been snowing and this can cause signal loss if snow gets on dish, etc. So looks like the snow caused the signal loss.

    Missed recording Earl and although E4 repeat every episode ever of Earl I can't seem to find when tonights is repeated!
