Hi everyone
I have a fransat globsat gs1001, and yesterday I went on to channel 8 and it just showed a black screen. I changed channel (all others worked) and then back again to channel 8 and the picture and sound were back. Please can you tell me what could have caused it to display the black screen? Maybe the satellite dish froze?

We are good but we arent mind readers! Whats on channel 8??!!

More likely though it was just "one of those things" - A set top box is just a computer with slightly different video outputs to your desktop machine and we all know how flaky they can be

Oops sorry it was d8 (direct 8). Ok thanks - I think I may have figured it out, when you change lnb frequency some channels go black right? I noticed the digibox is set to auto frequency, so it probably got confused like you said :) thank you so much for replying!
