That sounds like a TV generated message, I'd be checking the cable twixt sat box and TV.

As MTC, check nothings grown up in the line of sight  but I'd expect to see some picture break up rather than an On/Off signal loss

Check your cable connections are ok at both ends, but it sounds to me like you have something getting in the way of the line of sight of your dish. Any trees or other structures in the way?

If nothing in the way, try swapping the receiver out for another and see if it still happens. That will tell you if the box is on it's way out.
