No sat signal received, yet signal locked and strong...

Ive got a very strange problem with my SKY HD box which has been happening for months now.

Originally I would just be watching a program and it would lose the signal quite a lot.

But about 2-3 months ago it refused to pick up any channels at all - constantly saying "satellite signal not being received"

The strange thing is if you go into the signal test - the signal is locked and the quality is about 75% full!

I live in a shared apartment block so perhaps that could be something to do with it - but every other problem i read people can't get a lock on the program.

In this time of the HD box not showing anything at all, its managed to download the new SKY HD EPG as well! - and the TV guide even updates with what should be on.

Ive tried unplugging for 24 hours and various resetting commands although i dont know how to get them to work properly with the new EPG.

Any suggestions guys?
