No Satellite Signal Received - Help


Active Member
Wondering if anyone can shed some light or have had this issue themselves.

At home I have a Sky+ box in the living room and a Sky+ HD box in the bedroom.

I have had no issues at all with the Sky+ HD box but occasionally the Sky+ with show no satellite signal received on certain channels eg channel 4.
It also fails to record some things or only part records them.

A reboot of the box sorts the issue.

Does this sound like an issue with the box? As the Sky+ HD box has never had this issue. The Sky+ box is 2 years old now.


Yes, it's time to get Sky to replace the old one.
HD box working without problems so it's not the dish, but could be the cabling/connections or the box itself. You could swap the boxes over and see how it behaves - if you still have problems with the Sky+ box, then it's likely to be the box itself.

What make is your box?
