we've had a problem with our satellite signal since last tuesday (i honestly dont kniw hiw we have survived a week without TV!). during the storms we didnt ge any satellite signal - thats business as usual so didnt think anything of it. however the next day when we still didnt have any signal i started to become concerned... ok i admit the words "blind" and "panic" may more accurately describe my feelings....
anyway, we've tried the whole "turn it off and on again" thing with no luck: ive googled and found solutions "turn it off, hold down the back up button while turning on etc etc" - no luck - then tried the "turn it off, hold down the left/right arrow buttons while turnng back on etc etc" - no luck... ive called the guy who installed the dish who told us to find a local engineer (!?!) so we've got a french company coming next Tuesday pm to check the dish alignment... but the prospect of another weekend without tv is torture
so i wandered if anyone knew of someone in basel who could come and check our dish? i tried Dave the Dish but apparently he has retired and the dude who does his work now wont come out to france (leymen)
i was also wondering- if anyone knows about this stuff- we're not getting any signal, when i look on the signal strength page theres nothing, nada, zip there... so i actually suspect its our box thats kapput... if our dish had moved slightly surely we would get some signal? albeit maybe a crappy one? i thought about buying/borrowing a signal meter from somewhere- does anyone have one or know where i can buy one?
please help! panicking person!
oh by the way we're near basel un case i didnt mention that- and if i have replaced half the 'w's in this post with 'z's i'm not taking the p*ss i'm on a french keyboard.... honest
