Re: loss of signal

Robert Moore

1) David, Not a silly question - but the plug was the first thing I checked.
I'll need to get local TV installers to check alignment given the awkward position of my dish - probably after Christmas now.
2) Robert, the mains were unplugged while I was away .... but are you suggesting a complete reinstallation?

Thanks both

Thanks David. Left hand side of my status screen is the same as the

The 'Statistics' section is quite different - only the line BC
tallies in my screen.
Dish OK and I've made sure that the short run of cable has not been
chewed by a squirrel (not unknown around here).
Best wishes
OK, Robert.

I would have to guess that the dish has blown in the wind. Silly
question, the cable from the dish is plugged into the card on the PC, I
suppose? You might have removed it in case of lightning.
