Yep,seems so wod, I'm getting nothing on my minidish, however on the 1m I'm getting a seriously weak signal and just getting a piccie on some tps, eg 11642V, but weak.

EDIT,
checked again.

Now seem to be OK at the moment, see if it goes again.

Yeah, well those channels are not on Eurobird1, they are on Astra 2D, so not surprising that they are not affected.

Didn't notice a problem during the week though, but still OK right now.

As Robbo says they're on Astra 2D not on Eurobird.

There have been reports of 2D reception changes in the fringes such the Canaries but not in the UK area.

Satellite: 88cms DiSEqC motorised dish (self-installed) covering 62E - 37.5W; Technomate TM6900HD Super Combo & TM5400 via IF loopthrough. Also fixed 70cms Raven dish (monoblock 13E / 19E) as backup.
My Location
Littlehampton, West Sussex, UK
I'm glad to read this because I thought there was a problem with my setup!

I have a motorised 88cms dish down here in Sussex. At about 11PM last night (Saturday 12 September) all the Eurobird 1 channels that I flicked through were missing.

There was a very weak signal from several EB1 transponders, but it was unusable. This morning the EB1 channels were back, but even about an hour ago I was watching the quality bargraph fluctuate wildly between about 58% and 73%

Could it be a problem with the satellite itself or with the uplink station? Could it be weather-related somehow? Doubt it as it's been nice UK-wide this weekend!

At a guess EB1 depointed for some reason. cant see any obvious official comments on it so far.

This has been reported on DS forum by a member called Strathclyde. He is MD for one of the small channels and his info is normally spot on. I was correct with my depointing analysis :D
GlobeCast has been in constant contact with Eutelsat, the satellite operator since yesterday evening and Eutelsat has confirmed that the satellite is currently unstable within its orbital position. This is resulting in the fixed uplink antennas being unable to constantly transmit to the satellite accurately causing intermittent loss to all services. GlobeCast are at this time awaiting further information from Eutelsat who are working on resolving the issue as soon as possible and as soon as we have further information, a further update will be provided.

That sounds quite serious, is there enough redundancy at that location for channel migration, should the problem not be easily resolved?

One would hope that potentially catastrophic failure modes have been considered as part of the operational plan: but Eutelsat are not exactly over-represented by clearly identifiable craft up there. At least SES-Astra have more shuffle room, which is probably no consolation!

I suppose they could shunt the slightly dodgy W2M over to 28.2e if EB1 does go completely tits up :D

Lets face it, theres hardly anything of importance thats been broadcast off it at the moment anyway :p
