    Quite often we ask members to check their receiver, on another dish, even a fixed sky dish, but looking at the pictures, and the age, of the LNB, the odds are that the LNB has failed.
    I'm surprised an installer left a monobloc LNB, on a motorized dish, but it seems to have worked, for the user, has he got quite a few satellites, including 16E, and 4.8E, although he disn't mention 7E, 10E, and especially 23.5E.
    Sorry, didn't list all satellites I can receive, just the ones I can remembers using!!!! I also suspect that current setup can get other satellites outside the 0.8w-28.2 range I mentioned. It's just that that gives me everything I need and never bothered with anything else!

    Yes, I did connect receiver to a Sky dish and this pulled in all 28.8E channels.

    Anyway, on to the good news.......the guy has been, fitted a new dish/LNB and all is working great again. In fact, the signal strength has gone up significantly (0.8W is 81% and 28.2E is 100%!!!!!!)

    So, well happy with the outcome.

    Many thanks for all your interesting comments/suggestions
