I have had everything up and running perfectly with my Dreambox up till yesterday evening. Stupidly I connected an old analogue receiver to my dish and answered the doorbell. While I was out of the room the dish had moved itself right over to its extreme west side as the analogue receiver was sending a DiseqC signal to the motor. I reconnected my Dreambox and restarted it, and tuned to Das Erste on Astra 19.2E. The box worked fine but when I retuned to BBC World the signal started to break up and was lost. Now I find I need to restart the Dreambox to watch some channels even if they are on the same satellite. I have the second tuner connected to my Sky dish and if a tune now fails on the first tuner I can't get anything at all on the DB without restarting it first.

Try sending the dish to zero or reference point, it is unlikely that the dish is misaligned.

Great stuff - I set the dish to zero point in the postioner menu, rebooted the box and all seems fine now. :)
