I have a Quad LNB, SKY + and Pace 2600,

The sky + does not have any problems.

The new Pace 2600 keeps losing tthe signal. when i do get a signal it very distorted..

Im sure everything was ok beofre i got the new card and the bbc moved to Astra 2D.

Any Ideas ?

I had the same problem with my previous PAce 2200.

Also Gary, is it happening on all channels, or just on the 2D channels. It is pretty common for the quad LNB to be badly skewed when installed, a small tweak may help.

With the quad LNBs, you can twist them in the holder, but if by swapping outlets you have cured the problem, then leave well alone. :)

If its still working tomorrow my next steps would be>
Could be an outer strand intermittently touching the inner cable.
Cable could be naff How old is it? or have you got a uhf splitter on it carrying the terrestrial tv and lnb in 1 cable.
1 output could be naff on the lnb.
