Buy a bigger dish or get your current dish re-aligned

channel 5 works up until 12:30 and not much after that , also my itv channel HD has gone after two but normal channel is working. channel 5 is rubbish anyway so dont miss it that much. the channels have gone onto a new satelite and narrowed the band over the Uk I have been told that all the stations are moving to new satelites 

 

bbc2 has gone from my freesat box ?

Try a signal booster (around €10) from a tv/sat shop. Screw your sat cable into it then screw to back of sky box

Yes we are having trouble getting channel 5 for a couple of months now. Tried unplugging the tv & skybox for five minutes ( I'd read to try that on a google forum ) and it did not work immediately but the next day channel 5 came back but then disappeared again the next day. Tried unplugging again but didn't work this time. Anyone got any ideas?

Hi,

See this( http://riviera.angloinfo.com/forum/viewtopic/246081 )and other posts in the AI forum. Key in 'astra' in the forum search box and view by date so you see the latest posts.  Basically the channels are being moved to different satellites.

We might need bigger dishes.

Channel 5 HD is working for me, but I cannot get the regular 'diluted' version.
