Hi Mellissa, it sounds like the LNB in the satellite dish might be failing as the warmer weather comes in. A lot of old oval shaped ex-Sky ones are failing at the moment and need replacing.

If the problem affects all the channels at the hottest part of the day, this is the most likely reason I think. Cheers, Mike

Hi thanks Mike you  are right it is the hottest part of the day  and it is an old sky dish so I will get onto getting that sorted.

 

That LNB looks good Paul, but has a wider throat than the Sky one so will need a different bracket to mount it to the dish. Where would you get one of those?
