Could anybody tell me what has happened to English TV, received through a 2.4-metre satellite dish.
Since May/June I have lost most of the main channels i.e. BBC, ITV, Channels 4 + 5, although I can sometimes get the last two, at times.
We have a Pace receiver on one television, which on test says the signal is fine – but none of the main channels are on it. On another television there is a Freesat receiver, which has no signal at all. On the Freesat box I can get – at times – Channels 4 + 5, 5Star, E, More4+1, and other channels that I don’t want.
I have checked the LNB to see if it was clear, and the dish is not too dirty. I know that Channel 4 HD left Freesat ,as they were charging too much, but it doesn’t explain what has happened to the others
Hope someone can tell me what has happened, as I have had to resort to watching catchuptv on the internet, which keeps losing the signal and I miss all the endings!
We have consulted with Digital Satellite Services company (see page 19 of our Living pull-out) and they have ensured us there have been no recent changes in the reception. You may require an engineer to have a look at your set-up.
