Home Forums General Discussion TV reception Re: Re: TV reception


I was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing more than usual problems with their Sky reception at the moment? Our signal strength is down to approx. 25%, and most or all of our channels are affected, with the picture breaking up and/or freezing and the sound being out of sync with the picture.

Given the timing of the problem, I have come to wonder whether volcanic ash from Iceland may be to blame, both in the sense that high-altitude ash particles can probably partly block out the satellite signal, and to the extent that recent rainfall may have caused a layer of ash to stick to the dish?

Interested to hear any comments. Btw, we are in the West block.
