            I wouldn’t bother as the signals are so weak now its not worth it . I have dismantled my Sky HD set up and mothballed it

                    We have Sky SD which works OK most of the time but we sometimes lose Sky Sports in the evening. We lost Sky for 2 days after a split second power cut a couple of days ago but it did eventually return in the morning when the signal is stronger. i think SD works better than HD. What are you on? We are on 12.207.

                        Gem , have a look at the Sky Sd post I made , there are a couple of other frequencies to try , they both work for me , whereas 12207 is crippled for days , the other two fgreqs bring Sky back immediately esxman

                            Hi Thanks but we have tried those plus others we found as potentials on Lingsat and Kingsofsat. I don’t know why but people appear to find different frequencies better than others? Is it to do with where you are on the island? The only thing which was good was an alternative for Sky Sport 2, 12.285. For the last week we have had good Sky reception, except for the power cut :-X
