    Can someone shed some light....

    I've recently been decorating etc and have unplugged and moved the sky box (early Panasonic) about a few times.

    I'm now having problems with "no satellite signal being received", but only on BBC1 & BBC2. All other channels, including sports/movies etc work fine?

    My parents who only live 5miles up the road are having no such problems?

    Is this a fault with box or with transmission?

    Many thanks

    Probably a faulty LNB. The power to the LNB generates a little heat which helps to keep it dry. It may solve itself, but you may need a new one if it doesn't. BBC1 and BBC2 are usually the first ones to suffer if you have a bad LNB - look at the signal strengths and qualities.

    Also, the older boxes 'remember' that they haven't had a signal. Try a reboot and see what happens.

    Is the re-boot simply switching it off/on or is there a specific way?

    Switch off at the mains for 10 seconds then leave on standby for a further minute and then switch on.
