SKY Aerial : On side of house near top, around 15/20 feet off ground.

Normal Aerial - On chimney, 30/40 feet up.

Hi - [seemingly] since the analogue signal has been switched off in Shropshire (Wrekin transmitter) I appear to have lost reception on a lot of sky channels e.g 110,401 -> 405,432 - even reception for channels like bbc1 can be hit and miss (quite a lot of the freeview channels also have iffy recption).Other channels still seem to be absolutely fine. This has only occurred recently (hence thinking it is related to digital s/over),the aforementioned channels were all A1 until very recently. I have not tried the above reset sequencing yet.........any suggestions as to where I start plse. Many Thanks !!

Hi Briantist,

Tried Method 2 as instructed, all went to plan but issues not resolved.

Also tried Method 3 - issues still present and we just seemed to have lost all the sky channel listings :-(

Next ?

Many thanks for the advice :-)

Rgds, Nick

Hi Briantist,

Are LNBs easy to replace yourself or is it something best left to an engineer to sort everything out ? I'm no techie (as you have probably guessed by now :-) )

If the LNB was covered in dust/cobwebs etc would that affect reception i.e would cleaning it up potentially make a difference or not ?

Many Thanks again :-)

Hi Briantist,

I was speaking to you last week with my signal reception issues - it was TREES that were the problem :-<>. We are out in the sticks and there are a number of trees in line with the dish which have grown considerably over the last 10 years, hence the gradual decline in signal quality, accelerated now they are in full summer bloom.

Engineer has re-sited the dish so we should be OK for a coupla more years now, it will be on the chimney stack next !

Thanks very much for all the advice given.

Best Rgds,
Nick H
