    Further to my posting last week about my Amstrad DRX100 Sky Digibox picture freezing. I have now discovered this only happens when it rains, and over the last couple of days we have had plenty of it. Does any one know of ways to weather proof the dish/LNB, or could that be faulty?

    Cheers

    Damo :)

    Commonest problem this summer is wet leaves.

    Yes, really. Trees have grown up, blocking the signal path. Ten times worse when the leaves are wet.

    (Your LNB connection ought to be waterproofed with self-amalgamating tape. If not, replace the damaged LNB and cable. Do it before the water reaches the Digibox!)
