The most common problem that users experience on OpenView decoders, is an error message stating "NO SIGNAL. This could be caused by bad weather, dish misalignment or poor cable connection..." Sometimes this can be solved by rebooting your decoder by pressing 12345 and ''OK'' on your remote control. However, if the fault continues, you probably have a faulty dish or cable or LNB. Another possibility is that your dish is not correctly aimed at the satellite and needs realignment. We can assist with dish realignment and faulty LNB or cable replacement.
If this problem occurred during a storm, it is because the rain has absorbed some of the signal from the satellite and the problem will most likely disappear once the storm has passed and the water on your dish has dried up. If not, then your cable may have perished and absorbed water, in which case it must be replaced. If you often lose signal during storms, the solution is to fit a larger dish which will give you a stronger signal.
