Just a few questions about taking my sky box to the bach.

Dont know what sky thinks about taking it to another location but when I took it to the bach I could only get the no signal screen.

i have followed the instructions from and still no luck. The LNB is one of the oval ones.

any ideas?

or can I just call sky about it.

but if you have any ideas let me know so I can let people at the bach know.

Your LNB at the batch might be dead. These things don't last forever.

Make sure you have a meter so you can perform an alignment test and confirm signal strength.

an LNB is only about $35 to replace if you go to an electrical wholesaler. As openmedia says though, you'll need to make sure it's lined up correctly.

Yep the LNB was the culprit. Started right up as soon as new one was hooked up.
Great success

thanks again
