If you lose channels for the next 2 weeks at around 10-11 am for a few minutes then this is normal for this time of year.

Basically the sun is right behind the satellites, and the energy from the sun will swamp out the weaker satellite signals.

There is nothing you can do about it, as it can even affect “big dishes” also.

Rebooting the box will not help – apart from killing time until the signal returns again

It does not happen on ALL channels, as some are stronger than others.

This loss of signal happens twice a year in March and October – around the time of the equinoxes.

  1. We had not had access to satellite TV on this visit to Spain of April 2018, even though we had access in January. Is there an issue with the sky signal to the Marbella area?

    • There are no issues with any of the 100+ frequencies used on any of the three UK TV satellites.
      Nothing has changed with regards to signals or satellites at all in the last few years.
      So any issues you are experiencing will be down to a problem with your own individual system somewhere.
