Customer Question

I love in North London and for some weeks my Freesat has been hit and miss on some stations. Last night it was fine one minute and then completely disappeared and has not re-started this morning. The box is on, the TV screen is showing the TV guide and the white notification at the top of the screen is "the receiver is not receiving a signal or the signal is too weak".I have switched on and off, checked that cables are secure, .. dunno what else to do. Any suggestions ?
JA: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your TV?
Customer: There is an HDMI cable from box to TV. I have already this morning replaced this with a new one. There av jack's, but I have no corresponding cables
JA: Was there a power outage recently?
Customer: No. Not that I am aware of.
JA: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I cannot reach the disc without a long ladder so will not try that!
