I havent had that many problems using Waltham, but there always seams to be some kind of "work" going on. Satellite just seams much more reliable and you can chose any BBC/ITV region you want.

Please don't try to clear your dish with a hose pipe, you will end up with a skating rink and possibly a damaged LNB.

Insistently, if you live in a snowy area you can fit a low watt heating cable to keep it clear.

I would still have someone out to align and tighten the dish.

Something is defiantly going on at Waltham, over the past week or so a client of mine has had problems with some channels constantly breaking up while I have not not noticed anything, then yesterday they were all working perfectly for him, there have been lots of reports lately describing the same thing. What's going on???

I live in the LE10 area and my reception is strong. Always has been. He lives in the LE9 area his reception was fine before and after switch over then suddenly for about 10 days reception on some stations was bad, then without doing anything its fine again. Lot's of people have reported the same thing from Walthem. Digital just isn't as reliable as the old analogue was, you only have to read this forum to see that.
