    Hi,
    My movie channels have all gone so blockey that I get no picture at all except Movies 7 and 9 which are perfect. BBC news 24 has also gone, so has a number of other channels. Some of the low budget channels are ok though.

    Does this indicate a specific problem ie LNB can't reach those high notes any more! or does it perhaps show poor dish alignment or bad cable.
    I don't think It's poor alignment because I've spent hours minutley adjusting it to a really good signal on many channels it's just the few broken ones that have gone completley.

    What do you think?

    -Neil

    Neil,

    Pretty sure you've got a faulty LNB there. Probably the 'Cambridge' one at a guess. Easy DIY job to replace. You should be able to pick one up for under £20.

    You even managed to predict correctly the make of my broken cambridge LNB :D
