Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Georgina Rees: This type of problem is frequently caused by either the dish having been moved (blown or knocked) out of alignment or alternatively by water having entered the boxes "F" connector where its connected into the dish.
Should the latter apply then this can be checked by swapping the boxes LNB1 & LNB2 inputs over, if though the situation remains the same then this is inclined to point to a possible dish alignment problem, as even although a "no signal" message may have appeared its not necessarily the case that nothing is being received, as signals under a certain level will trigger this message.
You should carry out a signal check using the following procedure:
Press "Services" on your Sky remote control and you will see the main menu with "Options" being highlighted.
2:- Select the "Settings" menu using the right arrow button and press select.
3:- Use the left / right arrows to scroll to "Signal" and press select, the grey bars displayed will show you the strength of the signal being received, if any! should though anything be indicated then the strength / quality levels of that seen have to be around 50% minimum to produce a picture, this especially so where the quality is concerned which should never be lower than the strength.
By the way error 25 (sometimes 29) and not receiving a signal means exactly the same thing.
Further info dependant on reply, although if all the aforementioned fails then you could try placing the box in standby for 30 secs or so before disconnecting it from the mains, this then followed by reconnecting it again after a further 30 seconds and going through the installation procedure.
In cases like this its always much easier to verify if the dish is OK or not by trying another box on the dish, if a standard box then try each of the two input leads one at a time.
