Been using my Hills STB for months, just returned from holiday to find no channel reception.

Did a factory reset, set it up the same way as before (lnb type 10750) but still 0% signal quality.

Have I got a dud? Third time I've had to replace the unit for various problems. The satellite (an ex-sky one, I guess..) doesn't appear to have moved - what kind of equipment would I be looking at to verify that the sat is OK?

If you dont have access to any test equipment,the easiest way is to borrow another working set top box

Stupid thing fixed itself while I was having a cat-nap.
