    Sky Completely Gone Off

    Anyone elses Sky completely gone off ? It started with a couple of channels, then more and more now the lots off and I dont even get the EPG loading, getting no signal strength or quality on either 1 or 2.

    Is it likely to be the heavy snow or something else ?

    Thanks but I think not ! I might try spraying a hose up there but thats it !

    as above there's snow on your dish - get ya broom and gently brush it off..

    my dish is too high up to reach & no ladders, so will have to wait for it to fall off.

    If you spray water on it then that may freeze.

    Have you considered suicide? I mean no sky.... thats disastrous. What if its off for over 2 hours! You just can't live like that.

    Or you could just play in the snow, go for a walk, help an old lady, leave the house.

    What he said.

    As someone else pointed out it's probably a bad idea to spray it with water but a good hit with a snowball might knock any snow off.

    Are the ones filled with dog poo I reserve for passing pensioners suitable ?

    I do hope that this thread was put on as a joke? It's a bit like calling your car manufacturer because there's snow on the road!!
