Normally we have no problem watching and recording TV programmes via Freesat through our Humax box, but, unusually, over the past several days our TV screen has displayed, intermittently, the message "weak or no signal" and we lose the picture, only for it to return and then disappear again. For long periods there is no problem and then suddenly the picture pixillates, stutters and we see the "weak or no signal" message. If we change channels, some channels appear, unaffected, while others display the faulty signal message. Since the problem is intermittent, it seems to me that the equipment is not at fault; if it were, then presumably we would not receive any programmes at all. The reception problem first appeared when the recent prolonged period of bad weather began (high winds, heavy rain), but we have had similar conditions in previous years and we have not experienced the problem to the same degree. Are we alone or is this problem one that is currently being experienced by many others?
