Hi there and welcome

It is very possible there was an outage local to your area, do you still have the issue?

Thanks

Please remove the power to the Sky box and wait 10 minutes

Connect the power to it and tell me if you now get a signal please

sky isn't the problem. its the three others using an outside antennae
Expert:  Richard replied 9 months ago.

ok, then can you check the antenna please as this then would be the most likely cause.

Check the cabling that is going from the main switch to the Antenna for any damage, also the Antenna itself.

Let me know the results please.

Thank you for your help, but as an 80 year old lady, I am unable to check the outside wiring etc. I have arranged for a technician to come to find out what the problem is. Thank you for your help tho. M Glynn

Unfortunately, your help wasn't very helpful, as I had already decided it had to be the outside antennae, but that wasn't your fault. I feel I have paid £20 for nothing. Again, not your fault. I would use your service again for some other matter tho. Thank you.M Glynn
