For the past two weeks I have had problems receiving the four FTA programmes on Intelsat 19 .They are provided by TV Plus on 12286H SR 30000.The signal level has dropped from 88%  to anything between 65% and zero. I only get sound and occassionally a still (frozen) picture.  This affects channels France 24, Euronews, RT and 4E.  Reception of non TV Plus channels on other TPs is not affected. I particularly miss France 24 and Euronews which are very good souces of international news.


Does anyone else have the same problem?

I only checked briefly but they all seem fine to me.

I'm recieving these channels fine as well.  Although on another TP with a weaker signal I seem to lose signal around sunrise recently, somes back eventually.

Thanks.   I discovered I had a bad connection with the loop through cable!  These channels are working again but with a slightly lower signal strength.


Strange that it did not affect the Freeview channels.
