    Motorised dish no signal

    Hi guys,
    Using my solo2, I have A connected to sky and B connected to my positioner dish.
    I have all the numbers set as normal but found the motorised dish isn't working.
    If I put a foreign channel (e.g. riksat 13east) it will gain signal for about 2 seconds and then nothing.
    If I change satellite and move back to the original channel the same will happen.

    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Al

    maybe try shifting with those values.Could be that the aligment off the dish is not right or has changed.Try manually to get a lock on a transponder by moving dish step by step.

    I had a similar problem and tried re-installing everything associated with the motorised dish, I even flash installed the latest image but no joy. As a last resort I asked my local sat guy to test the signal on the dish, thinking it was the LNB. He found that the LNB connector was corroded and hence was not making a good contact. Apparently the original installer forgot to pull the weather cover down over the connections!! All now working fine having installed a new LNB.
