Hi I am living in Stevenage, I had a TV in the living room and another one in my bedroom on the second floor, I can watch sky programs in the living room but not in my bedroom, I have a long cable connecting my LNB and to my second floor, the error messege says "searching for listing", but there is always a main screen when I operate the box on second floor, I guess that's probably something wrong with my cable...

Nicola: Although the other Sky boxes used in your house are reported as being OK the LNB ports used for the problem box might not be, and so the best way to determine as to whether they are or not is to temporarily swap the problem box over with one of the others, giving an update on the results, further advice being dependant on findings.

Just another little point I wondered about, when you said that you reset the box was this via the boxes "Reset" option on the menu? and although you have only had the box for 10 days was it a new box? as there are different versions of these.

Today I was watching TV as normal and switched everything off as I went upstairs to get catch a nap. I came back down after an hour or so and switched on the TV adn everything else. The TV, Sky box, DVD Player etc came on and when the sky box came on, it did not show the sky channel, I wasn't able to switch to any channel, even from those 4 buttons that be on the top of the remote. All it said was: Any further scheduled information cannot be listed. Then it said: Searching for listings. I waited like half an hour, but still it was frozen on the screen. What oI do? Tried 2 hours later-still the same. :( Help me please.:).

I can't get any channel to show the listings. All I get is "Searching for listings" .....I'm not sure if there is a signal from the dish. I've tried selecting SERVICES but there is no option to then select SYSTEM SETUP and then SIGNAL TEST.

Please can someone help!!

Peter: Which model of Sky box do you have? Have you checked the cabling and connections coming from the dish?
