Hi

There is a possibility that the antenna is defective. Sometimes a factory reboot helps or re-burn of the firmware. One way to confirm an antenna problem is to go into the tools menu and select "about". If the screen says "GPS S/W = 0.0 (should be a real number like 2.9 or 3.0) then this indicates that your antenna is not communicating with the main board.

Why do I lose All BBC channels every time it rains It is an LG tv with built in freeview


Are you using a Satellite dish for your signal? Rain adversly affects signal with satellite dishes, or if the incoming signal is from a satellite based transmission from the BBC, channels will be "knocked out" temporarily.

Duodvr 625 loses guide


deemary911,

If the guide isn't updating then the timers will not fire correctly. The guide should update every night during it's updates, however if it's losing signal it may not update at all.

Go to the Main Menu > System Setup > Installation > Point Dish then select "Check Switch" then "Test". This will test the satellite signal to be sure there are no problems. If it finisheds and no messages come up, exit out and see if the problem continues. If it does or you get any messages about fewer satellites found, let me know!

No satellite signal


Some vehicles have a coating in the windshield that can interfere with the GPS unit receiving the satellite signal. It is not the unit's fault. You may need to purchase an external antenna to allow your unit to work inside your vehicle. These are available at www.garmin.com or at your local GPS retailer.

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

Lost signal from the satellite


Signal Fade And Loss ~ Important, especially during winter!

Keep in mind that satellite broadcasts occur directly from fixed satellites in space to users. UPLINKS TO that satellite can happen from almost anywhere in the world! This includes broadcasts from remote studios, satellite vans and trucks.

Even signals from the main providing studios are susceptible to weather conditons even tho they have huge, high-gain transmitting dishes!

Weather is a major factor for both the uplinks and downlinks! Storm clouds can block the signals anywhere in the signal path(s). Rain clouds do too ~ even if it's not raining yet. Water-laden clouds make some of the BEST signal attenuators.

So one may have a gorgeous day in San Diego (let's say), but storms back east could trash satellite reception at his location and potentially everywhere else!

As you know, weather conditions all over the US are changing constantly with many severe storms occurring this past week and during any winter. In fact this week there was total signal loss on several satellites and I suspect storms back east were a big factor.

So it could have just been issues of timing for you. The UPLINK had intermittent problems with signal paths semi-crippled by weather... YOUR weather was CLEAR, but your reception was far from problem free ~ only because of weather problems elsewhere.

If you see intermittent satellite reception do check out the weather... especially back east.

Hope this helps!

Stops receiving signals


Make sure that your antenna is in a line of sight such as a window. I know Sirius works in an Easterly direction for line of sight but I think XM works in a Westerly direction for line of sight.

The system has a buffer in it so it can take 5-10 minutes to lose the signal if it does. Keep an eye on the meter.
