Is anyone else having problems with their Sky TV today? We've just had a "technical fault" screen on every channel since around 8pm last night.

Wondered if it might be due to something really technical Rolleyes like "too much snow on the dish", or a real fault with a wider reach. As per usual the call centre lines are impossible to get through to because...... their staff have been unable to get to work due to the weather Laugh.

No problems here.

For what it's worth, if there's snow on the arm which comes out under your dish (the LNB, I think it's called), I'd say that explains it. Have a look on the Digital Spy forums and you'll probably find a host of people having similar issues.

Obviously take extreme care if you decide to attempt to clear it - you don't want to knock it out of alignment since that might leave you with no signal with or without snow.

Back up and running this morning Thumbsup - perhaps the first (hopeful) signs of a thaw......
