I am living in Germany and have just returned from Spain where I was staying for a week.
I have a house between Marbella and Estipona.The house is situated quite high with nothing to block out tv signals.
When we bought the house it had two sky boxes one upstairs and one downstairs.The one downstairs was always okay but the one upstairs would take a few days before the signal came through! If it was turned off, the signal also went again and could take quite some time to come back.

They share a double LNB with a 1.5 mt dish.(which is almost 30 years old)

Over Xmas (downstairs) many channels were breaking up later in the day and so I tried to adjust the dish.I have the very basic sat finder and it always did the trick.This time, although I got a strong signal coming through from the sat finder there was no Sky signal.I tried again this last week but with no success at all. I tried to update the software but without success.
and also a direct cable from tv to dish.Nothing works.
I must point out that my neighbour has had no problems with sky.(except certain channels breaking up evening time.

I tried a second sky reciever but with the same result.It seems to me there is nothing else to try!

I also have a smaller dish for German.When I used my sat finder installing that I found many different signals from various countries but when searching on the big dish for Sky,I could only find one signal.
I did try another LNB(quite an old one) without success.

I would really appreciate any help anyone might be able to offer.
