Sky Receiving Problem.......

I have a problem........

My Panasonic Box would keep hanging with the problem where I would get a Noise burst (a 1s hit) and then lose sound. If left, it would lock out possibility to change channels. Only way around this was to recycle power to the digibox. It started getting worse to the point that it would happen every minute or so but on some occassions it would go days with a problem. It has locked out completely now that I cannot power on, just have the red power light.

Purchased a Sony Digibox, plugged in and brought up sky. Message saying "No Satellite Signal is being received".

New box took a month to arrive (this made me happier at delivery delay).

Was the problem with the LNB or is it now that I have to contact Sky. (I'm asking becuase I don't want to spend money on an LNB when its a Sky issue).

Thanks in advance.

1 the panasonic 30's all have a serious problem.
2 sony stopped making digiboxes a couple of years ago so yours might have very old software on it.
go to services 4,5 system details and see the software versions

Hope you are not in fringe area cos as far as i remember the Sony digibox had a poor tuner..
