My TV works exclusively from a Skybox.
Over the past two weeks the picture and sound have been coming and going.
Sometime the screen states "Your Skybox/HD isn't getting a satellite signal"
Is the problem with the dish?
Thanks for the Question

OK what you need to do initially is get another input into the set like a DVD recorder or player and monitor that if its mis-behaving with that then you have a problem with the TV or both so let me know about that first and we will move on with it, just come back here when ready

The DVD player works fine

DVD player is fine. I have two skyboxes and they are both similarly affected. That's why I thought it might be the dish.

Tony yes its a problem with the dish particularly if its dual LNB feeding both boxes or the lead from the dish to the box, the LNB can go bad

Let me know if you need more info

A positive rating is appreciated thank you
