Humax Freesat box can't pick up signal and no chan

  Nkeogh 15:28 20 Apr 2018

For the past few days I have not been able to watch the tv. We have a humax Freesat box i have tried to retune the settings but all I keep getting is the box can't pick up a signal and no channels can be found. I have done all the normal stuff like disconnecting everything as per rebooting a computer but this hasn't worked either. I've also looked at the terminals on our dish outside and given them a clean, but still nothing, can someone help ?

Just be careful. I did a retune of my Foxsat but the RF input was faulty so could not tune in. The setup then just hung and now I cant get at any of my recorder programs.

Hi fruit bat Thanks for the response. I have tried all these steps but nothing changes. The Freesat box is working as I can still watch programmes we've recorded, we can't pick up live tv channels. I've arranged for a sat company to visit next week to check the dish etc so looks like no tv for the next 5 days !. Many thanks

Thanks Alan the box is still working okay as we can watch recordings, just no live tv channels.
