Have you checked that the dish is still properly aligned? Could the recent storms in the UK have thrown it off? Likewise, have you checked that all the cables and plugs between dish and receiver are in good order? Lastly, if you have a Sky contract, have you called their customer support line?
have you checked the cables to the lmb ( dish ).... or take the dish cables out of the back of the sky box. wet your finger and put finger on to the centre and out part of the cable connector that some times works. faling that the sky box may need a factory rest or is damaged or the lmb has gone.
IF there is a scart port plug your av receiver into the scart. Take note on which number your on ie channel there should be several numbers you can choose on your tx/rx then go down stairs to your sky box and ensuring that you are on the same number as the one upstairs.
Then just plug it into the back of your sky Box.. the number on your sender are incase your getting interfearance from other sources in the home. have a play with this and see what works best
0 1 select
make sure the power is turned ON
now go to the room you can not change the sky channels over with.
you should notice on the magic eye itself should now have a Red led light on it now. you should now be able to change the channel over just remember to press the blue sky button on the remote at the top otherwise this will not operate the sky box.
If not unplug this magic eye and try this directly into RF out 2 to make sure that its not the magic eye that is at fault. If it is working correctly then the light will appear.
Environmental problems like yours are almost always caused by a faulty LNB (Low Noise Block). This is the electronic bit on the satellite dish, and eventually most of them let in a bit of water which causes problems. Yours may be getting condensation inside as morning and evenings are times of temperature change which could cause this to form from any water trapped inside. Also consider replacing the coaxial lead from the LNB to your Sky box, good quality cable gives a better signal and costs little. If water has got into the LNB then it sometimes penetrates along the coaxial cable as well.
Larger DIY stores sell replacement LNB's for as little as £10 and you can get them online as well. Replacement is straightforward if you can safely access your dish. If not then get someone competent to do it.
You can buy what you need online as well, the following website is one which I've used happily in the past but other suppliers are available as well.
This is often due to a limited line of sight issue such as foilage growing into the signal pathway. Often it occurs when the wind blows and the foilage sways into the signal path. From behind the dish look out at the angle of elevation the dish is pointed and try to identify if there are any obstructions in the area. If you are unable to determine this yourself call for a service call and they will assist you with obtaining a better line of sight.
I hope that is helpful. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
