    Channel 4+1 night time reception

    I have noticed a drop off in reception for Channel 4+1, More 4 and E4. These seem to be the only channels affected. From around 10PM the picture starts breaking up and after approximately 15 minutes is lost altogether. This has never happened before and started about 1 month ago. I have a 2.4 metre dish and live on the Costa Blanca. Does anyone else have this problem, or do I need to get the alignment of my dish checked?

    Hi and welcome,

    Firstly, it is possible that the heat / humidy is causing problems with reception, as per

    Losing TV in the Summer?

    Secondly, there have been some sporadic and UNCONFIRMED reports that this has been happening due to the transponder having power issues. A drop in power would cause loss of signal earlier.

    One solution is that is you have a freesatfromsky card, you can get C4+1 via add channel, on frequency 12480.
    If you have a sky subscription then E4 and M4 are also available via 12480.
