lost signal on old Sky Dish...
My mother-in-law uses my old Humax Foxsat-HD box for her TV, and recently it's showing zero sat signal strength and quality. She has freesat, but loves the free bollywood movies on UMP....
I've check the humax box at my house, and it works fine so presume it's either (a) the dish has moved; and/or (b) the single LNB has failed. From peering out the window it seems solid as always - it's fixed to a wall at 17feet up, so not wavering on anything "movable". There are no trees in the immediate area to block.
As she lives in an upstairs flat (in London), I need to ask the elderly downstairs neighbour for access to get a ladder up the back of the building to check the dish. As I don't want to impose on the old lady downstairs any more than necessary, I thought I'd pre-buy a single LNB so I can check alignment and replace the lnb in the same visit.
But... eBay has a large variety of LNBs - 0.1dB, 0.2dB etc, and they appear to affix to a dish in different ways.
Re the attachment, I can take another look and double check what it looks like (I recall Sky changed their dish design about 10 years ago). As to the 0.1dB, 0.2dB etc - I'm flummoxed! Are there "decent" makes and brands to avoid also?
