    Hi guys,

    For over a year I have had a weird problem with Sky. It seems that early evening onwards when I try to access channel 464 (Classic fm) it just completely artifacts making it totally unwatchable.

    Also everytime I go to ITV (103) it artifacts for about a second but then is perfectly okay.

    On Tuesday of this week, both channels were normal for the first time in ages, but alas no it is back to normal again! I was hoping that Sky had sorted something out remotely.

    Anyone know of this problem or have a solution?

    TIA

    Sounds like you could have a faulty LNB (that's the bit in the centre of the dish that the cable attaches to).
