Ade:
It does not appear in the programme listing on my Sky HD box, so I doubt it is generally available. But I live in Wiltshire so I suspect that few would be interested in RTE as they would generally appeal to those interested in Irish programming and affairs.

Ade I don't know. Ask on an Irish in UK website.

Or try with an Irish box.

David Messer: Channels can disappear for a number of reasons. In my experience it is often a reception problem. This can be due to water in the aerial or water in the cable or interference from Tree growth. Did the loss happen over time or almost immediately?

No Signal Help. Recently lost signal 2 input. Switched cable input into box and can then get input 2 but not one. Checked all cables, dish and tried troubleshooting options listed here

I will assume you are talking about a Sky+ box? If that is the case then by swapping the two cables between the inputs you have shown that there is a fault with the feed that was originally plugged into Input 1. The possibilities are that the cable has a fault, the connectors at end (or both) have a fault, possibly a short circuit (often caused by the fine braid outer screening touching the inner core) or else the LNB on your dish has developed a fault.

Do you have a dual LNB or a Quad? The first has just two output connectors inside the weather cover and the latter has four connectors. If you have the latter, and you can gain safe access to the LNB, you might try swapping the twpo cables to the other pair of connectors. But do make sure they are screwed on correctly and the weather cover is put back in place to prevent water getting into the cables.

Mark.

Applogies, I meant that you have shown that the feed that was originally Input 2 is faulty. Input 1 feed ios still working fine.

I keep meaning to ask : what do the coloured bars at the bottom of each posting signify? ( It was doubtless explained somewhere, but I missed it.)

thanks for the reply Mike.

Just to be sure, the fact that the socket on the sky+ box won't register input 2 or input 1 (when cables are switched) indicates cable or LNB fault not box fault ?

appreciate your help
