All ok in plymouth, try turning the box off at the mains for a few minites, then try again.

Turn it off, and physically disconnect the lead coming from the dish.

Wait for three minutes (which seems like an epoch when you're standing there), then reconnect the dish lead. Turn on the Skybox and all should be well.

You were both spot on now working ok, strange how it only affected some channels and not other's and had a convincing error message indicating a sky HQ problem.

But great I am OK for fight club monday night on eurosport now.

looks like your box is playing up.

A passing thunder storm with heavy rain will put most Sky boxes out of action, but surely this is only a passing problem and soon clears. If you are having problems with just "ordinary" rain then surely there must be more to it. Sky are not going to make refunds for every passing thunderstorm, are they?

A larger dish and a better LNB will help!

...that we didn't get anywhere near as much trouble when we all had simple ariels?

This is another good old days posting, as I have already said on another posting tonight they were not such good days. but I do take your point.
