It's ALWAYS your end.

You've done the disconnecting/reconnecting power.

Check the satellite cable is secure in the back of your box.

We didn't have a huge storm over night that I noticed so I'd suspect that if it's not a loose cable that the cable has got water in it over the winter and has only now broken or either the LNB or box has died.

If you can reach the dish then undo the cable connector, it should be bright and clean inside with the centre core of the cable sticking out a little proud of the connector. If it's black and manky with no cntre core then that's your problem. If you cut a bit off the end of the cable, clean up and replace the connector you can often refit the remade cable to the LNB.

If it's easier, test your connection with a borrowed working box or check your box on a friends working dish.

It's all a process of elimination, good luck.
