    Loss of BBC and ITV signals

    Hi,
    I have a PF 1.45 dish with a Thomson DS14214R, a Pace DS440N and a Bigsat BS100 boxes, normally I get very good reception 24/7 from Torrevieja.
    last night around 1830, I switched on the TV to ch998 (BBC CI) picture very broken and pixulated, then tried ITV CI no signal at all for that, then tried any number of other BBC and ITV ch's and every one had no signal,all other stations were perfect incl the fives and ch TTon4 were working, so then thought it must be a storm somewhere stopping the weaker signals, which I do get from time to time, but normally only for a few secs to a few mins.
    After an hour without the signal from BBC and ITV, I then checked the other boxes and found them to be the same, I then did a reboot (Services4,1,2,ok reset to 12129 etc) but still no signals on BBC and ITV, tried this a couple more times about an hour apart still no success, also checking the web to see if anyone else was having the same problem - nothing reported - also checked the dish and cable nothing untowards, so switched of tele and put box on standby.
    Checked again this morning (around 0700) still same, did another reboot - still no change - also no one else complaining on the web so decided it must be something wrong with my dish/transponder but what?
    Reported my problem to my installer via email.
    Came back from shopping at around 1015 so thought I would give it another try (no reboot) and was most surprised to find both BBC & ITV plus their varients were now working perfectly.
    What I can't understand is why they went off for so long and what made them come back?
    Any ideas?
    Don

    best thing to do is to get the connections from the lnb to the receiver checked...could be a loose connection in the cable...
    failing that then either the dish has moved slightly or there is a problem with the LNB....
