    Hi,

    C4HD is on a totally different satellite to BBC HD, so it should be OK.
    Surprised that BBCHD is breaking up yet ITV1 HD is not - as they are on the same satellite and similar frequencies, so their reception should be OK.

    Some things to consider:
    Some Sky HD boxes perform better than others.
    You dish has moved
    Your dish is bent and has been installed incorrectly so is not optimum.
    Your LNB is failing
    Water ngress into the cable
    The current heat and humidty is causing reception issues.

    I do not know where you are (I dont cover Kent!),so I do not know if you are in my service area and you do not say what size dish you have or which of the various Sky HD boxes you are using, so there is very little I can do to help you on here, but, as I suggested in my prevouius post, loss of channels earlier than usual suggests you may need your dish alignment checked, or your LNB checked and / or replaced, or your cabling checked.
