Wind moved your dish?

 

(Although with BSkyB transponder power, a dustbin lid in the right direction will pick up Sky)

Not sure, we live in a rural area, and it is usually quite rainy/windy. But it only seems to disconnect when not connected to phone cable. When it is, it's fine.

Connecting the phone line whilst seeing the on screen error will prove it either way ....

 

One thing's for sure ... it ain't the sat, its geo-stationary orbit is still at 28.2 degrees east.    🙂

 

(funny story)

 

~ Although my mate had a problem with his sky .... every morning whilst watching Sky News a cockerel from the adjacent farm would sit on his dish arm, next to the low noise blocker, and often excrete on said LNB, and it took him a fortnight to find the cause .... which was sorted secretly one morning, with the aid of a Theoben Rapid 7 at 60ft lbs muzzle velocity.

 

And now he gets a lie-in as well as improved sat reception.!    🙂

 

When needs must ....

if you disconnect the sky box from the power supply is will give a 'telephone not connected error' but just ignore that and continue on and channels work fine.  if you are having connection drops then check the signal strength and quality using the remote

When you say power supply do you mean phone cable or actual electricity?

my phone is never connected so when I sometimes need to reset the sky box by switching power off and then on again it boots up and first thing it says is telephone line not connected.  I just ignore it and continue on to the menu
