At 10 am UK time(approx) today I lost BBC1 & 2 ITV CH4 and CH5. All gave No Sat Sig being received. Within 10 mins. everything was functioning normally again. This has happened for the last 4 days. I have checked with my neighbours nd they have experianced the same. I am in a fringe area(Costa del Sol). Sky news does not disappear. Changing channels can cause digibox to hang leaving a power off reset to fix. Anyone know anything about this?

Transit of the sun dírectly behind the satellite for a few minutes each day knocking out transmissions with high levels of electromagnetic energy, it'll be over in a few days' time. It's more noticeable on 2d's transmisions (BBC, ITV, C4) due to the lower power levels from that bird.
