Gradually worsened problem. Couple of weeks ago I had some channeles (especially up in music / film on sky breaking up; this progressed to a number of channels having NO SIGNAL 28 message but the majority were still fine and even very clear. When on a channel with no signal the signal strength non existent and not locked were showing but when on a visible channel this was strong and locked.

Over this last week the number of channels disappearing increased steadily and then epg wasnt picking up some listings. Finally this has progressed to a total lack of channels message changed to 29 no signal received and epg showing nothing and cant play recorded material. Tried all three methods (the update last night)and it did seem to update and turn of after 7 or 8 minutes or so.

I've checked wires that all look sound (havn't been able to get right up to dish yet but the wires from near look fairly secure still.

Box is a Thomson Sky HD box. We have another box in bedroom running from same dish with freeview only channels that seems to be working fine signal wise.

ANy assistance greatly received thanks

Thanks for that, I must admit box was seming likely with other one working and getting all relevant freeview. Been up to the dish tonight and all wiring and connections look fine and dish appears secure. My time without millions of channels may have pursuaded me to ditch the subscription altogether!!
