Hi All, over the past week,only usually when corrie is on, I get No Sat Signal or break up, but not normal break up like low signal would cause, on my sky+ box. I check the signal strength/quality and they are both sitting on 90/90. I know the reading is not for ITV1 transponder, but I wondered if anybody else was getting the fault.

I have been up to the dish,and the lnb looks fine (only 2 months old) and the f connectors are dry.

Anybody been having problems? ( All the other channels are fine)

First thing to check is the frequency of the ITV channel you are watching, you can do that at www.lyngsat.com. Then go into Services/System Setup/0,1,Select/Manual tuning and type in the information for that channel. Look at what the signal is like during normal times and then check it when the problem arises. It is possibly an outside influence like a radar detector on a car, or a DECT phone.

Does this happen on Euronews (ch528 I think) too?

If it is not interference then it could be a low band switching problem, with the LNB either not switching into the low band properly because it is faulty, or the receiver is not telling it to.

I know some of the BBC and other things are in the same band, but for some reason Euronews and some ITV1 regions seem particularly affected by this.
