    During heavy rain showers I get very bad interferance on Sky Digital, and in some instances even lose the channel altogether. Is this common place, or is there a fault in my set up?

    Check your signal strength and quality. For some reason your rain margin is too small. It could be dish misalignment, cable too long or faulty, LNB faulty or misaligned, receiver faulty, something blocking the signal to the dish (tree, roof overhang?) or you simply need a larger dish.

    There's a few things for you to check before spending any money!

    This is fairly common with Sky mini-dishes when you have heavy rainfall. It's unlikely to be your lnb or cable.

    Do you lose any signal with average rainfall, or is it only during heavy showers? Possibly your dish is out of alignment and that may cure the problem.
