Have you checked the signal strength when this happens?

You're not using the dish as extra storage space ;-)

Seriously though,  I suspect that the issue is more one of dish alignment - no sign here of SBS going.  I imagine as they are vertical and Freeview broadcast Horizontally it's only going to be the "enthusiasts" who tune into SBS.

I have it around the 85 mark ... I have never had any problem before with it (unless it rained).
I did notice there was no signal and then it slowly came back on when the signal got around the 60 mark and increased to 85.

Hi guys,
regarding receiving sbs channels on a dual lnb - ive got the triax dual lnb holder bracket with adjustable tilt

 - after initial install of a dual lnb setup, found by chance that the angle of tilt on the dual bracket wasnt quite quite enough making fine tuning between d1,d2 h&v very fine- a minor modification of the tilt bracket
to tilt the lnb's slightly more to give a slightly more angle increased the signal strength and made fine tuning easier. Perhaps this may be another thing to consider if youre having trouble with sbs channels on a dual lnb?
