    Hi all,

    Had an issue the last few days with satellite channels breaking up or not working. This morning none of the sat channels are working and when I try to tune them it says unable to locate signal on tuner C and tuner D. I get no SNR or signal lock on either of the two sat tuners but both cable tuners work fine. Running Wooshbuild Infinity one Xtrend ET8500.

    Cheers

    Has your dish moved? It has been windy the last few days.

    A quick way to check is try another box and check the signal strength is that does not work you will need to check dish alignment coax or LNB

    Cheers. I’m going to borrow someone’s sky box to see if I get anything. Hopefully that should establish if it’s my box/tuners or the LNB

    Cheers. Borrowed a box I know that works and it says no signal so it’s pointing towards LNB.

    Now need to get a new one ordered and see if it fixes things.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Check your dish alignment before you
    Purchase l.n.b l.n.b fault will cause
    Fluctuation off your s.n.r or you will
    only recieve certain channels on the
    V side off the transponder or h side
