Sorry, missed this post. :)

If you have tested your other receiver and it is OK on the upstairs connection, then it is probably your box, older Grundigs are notorious for power supply failure and it's easy to install a new power supply, Amstrads seem to suffer from tuner problems and other problems which I believe are mentioned in another thread. You can pick up a Sky+ box on somewher like eBay for around £150, probably less.

If you want to check it's not a cable or other fault you could swap the boxes for a day or so.
