    As a recent convert to $ky digital, all has been plain sailing until last night when I switched the box on and it says no satelite signal being received. I have checked the cable from box to wall socket (unscrewed and reconnected), booted up the box again and same thing.
    I live in flats and from the box, the cable goes up the outside wall and to the communal dish on the roof.I have called $ky (waiting for engineer) and the building managers say they will check the roof part, but this all takes time! (And no doubt they will all blame each other). Any suggestions as to where the problem may be?
    ie box cable or dish?
    I don't know which neighbours have $KY (so can't ask if theirs is OK) and we all have seperate cable runs up to the roof. Terrestrial and ITVDIgital work OK (it pixelates and breaks up but always has done)- they come down the same cable, the aerial is part of the same install as the dish.

    Cheers (All hail to the Ale etc.),

    I get no satelite signal being received sometimes when its raining heavy. I would suspect it is the cable or dish or lnb. If you have a new satellite box, its probably not at fault (the box).

    I get pixilation if there is a cloud anywhere in the sky. Mind you something has to be sacrificed so we can get 19 shopping channels.
