I get the no satellite signal error (mainly code 29 but also saw code 25). I have had no signal for 2 days now as yesterday there was snow on the dish, arm and LNB. Today the dish, arm and LNB all appear to be snow free but still no satellite signal. The dish is on the end of a silver pole which I did shake gently to try and get the snow off yesterday however the pole moved. I have pulled the pole back but not sure if this has affected the signal. Is the dish in an exact location and if moved slightly can this completely remove all signal?

Jb38: If I told you I loved you would that be inappropriate :D

I went into the menu you said (I have Sky+ HD so had to work it out). Put the broom out my window and slowly moved the pole the dish is attached to cm by cm. I purposely put the volume up higher than normal and as I was moving the dish I heard Sky come on down stairs, (haven't been so glad to hear that women going on and on on channel 998 lol)

Thanks to you I can cancel the engineer (who was coming out under warranty) and most importantly tomorrow I will be watching Chelsea vs Arsenal and Tottenham vs Man UTD on my 65 inch Panasonic Viera flat screen TV with my Sony S Master amp blasting out 5.1 surround sound and a 6 pack of ice cold fosters gold :)

All the best mate

Jb: Assuming there is only one line of sight the dish can be in to have signal, I'm hoping I won't need to do anything else. Reason being is the metal pole is currently touching the gutter of the roof, it cannot physically be moved any further over. If I move the pole even an inch away from the gutter I completely lose signal. Assuming the dish itself hasn't moved I think it should be ok

Thanks again

Jb38: I understand what you're saying. The picture appears normal however signal is about 80% for Signal 1 Strength and Quality and about 75% for Signal 2 Strength and 80% for Signal 2 Quality I'm assuming Signal has no effect on picture quality as long as your above the 55%. Is it a case of you either have Signal or you don't?

Kind regards
