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.

Ikonvert TV converter box is reading lnb short what is this


'LNB' is low noise block. It is the receiver that is located in the middle of your satellite dish where the signal is collected from the dish.

You need to check the wiring at the rear of the receiver and all the way to the LNB itself.

Why is my sky+hd box not getting a signal?


Bad dish alignment. Rain or snow blocking the dish. Leaves on a tree blocking sight of the satellite. Scaffolding/building works blocking sight of the satellite. Fault on the cables. Damaged or faulty LNB

Hello, I have a sky dish and decoder, but before the decoder I have put a splitter and carried a seperate coax straight to another Freeview tv hoping to get a signal... But it hasnt. Is it possible to...


David.
Are you using the same output from the LNB on your sky dish?
ie one cable??.
If you are it will not work you need to use a seperate output,
if you cant do this,you will need to change the LNB to a multi output one.
By the way there is 30 volts present all the time from your receiver to your LNB, that is even while switched off.

No signal on my starview s2828+ box


Three things here the unit the cable or the LNB.
Simple things first Cable
1.cable
Check the satellite plugs on Both ends are correctly fitted and there is no shorting of the core central cable and the shield. Check the cable with a meter put a loop( connect core to shield at one end) on the other end and check resistance.
2. Unit
Check your unit with a know good setup a friends perhaps.
3. LNB the unit on the arm of the dish
You should be able to get a signal from the LNB with a alignment meter. or replace with known good to test

hope that helps

I have a Sky+HD box on a unit, the opposite side of the living room to the where the tv unit is. The Sky box can only go here due to satellite dish cables. I have run coaxial cables underneath the floor...


Unscrew f connectors from LNB, and rewire to desired location, or tell sky to do it or you'll leave. They will put you through to retentions, but will end up sending someone out to do te job

Changed from single to twin LNB, no signal


HELLO

Here is a suggestion! Try SKEWING the LNB around a few degrees. Looking at the front of the dish, turn your LNB to the LEFT slightly (that is anti-clockwise).

Sometimes it's the little things that matter most where installation is concerned. It is also possible that due to the weight of the new LNB, the alignment may be out.

The Sky HD Box keeps losing the signal on every channel except terrestial 1, 2 3, 4 and 5. An error message comes up with 'no satellite signal being received' and codes 28 and 49 and to get the signal...


could be any of the following;

1 dish out of alignment (re-align dish),
2 faulty LNB (low noise block) on the dish (likely) replace
faulty box, even more likely

How do i fit a dual LNB so i can change channels


HELLO
A word of warning! Do not attempt to split any feed coming from a single output LNB to another satellite box - you will be asking for trouble!
Now for the solution. If you are using a standard sky minidish you will need a 40mm adaptor kit, a dual output LNB and another length of satellite cable (Webro WF100 prefereably) but I suppose RG-6 will do the job providing it is not too long (around 10-15 meters or so) a couple of F connectors and self-amalgamating rubber tape.
Power off everything! Remove the old LNB and to do this you'll notice a plastic rivet on the LNB arm of the dish which must be removed. When you have done that and the new LNB is place (don't tighten everything yet), connect your current length of cable to one output and the new length to the other (finger tight should be fine) and make sure BOTH of your boxes are connected. Remember to waterproof those LNB connections.
Power on! You should be getting pictures - if not the LNB will need skewing round a bit. Look at the dish from the front and turn the LNB in a clockwise position say the 2 o'clock position - that should do the trick. Then tighten everything.
I wish you well with it - good luck! (:-)

I have experienced periodic loss of BBC channels on Sky box


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.
