Question about Televison & Video
Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the
house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal
except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish
e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major
storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow
build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has
decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most
likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the
dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Dropping of the sat signal can happen for many reasons, weather, sun spot activity (which we have now) and also up link to sat can be faulty, I suspect the problem is not with your equipment but the signal is being affected by some outside influence like sun spots.
