Lost Shaw Direct signal. Anyone else?


Recommended Posts

We got a message on our Shaw Direct TV Satellite system that  "Receiver has lost signal. Network connection lost"  Normally this only happens when a rainstorm interferes with the signal and the signal is regained as soon as the rain lets up. There has been no rain today and the signal has been lost for a couple of hours now. Is this happening with anyone else? Any thoughts, solutions?

It has been cloudy all day.  Clouds can block the signal like rain.   Maybe you need to adjust your dish to perfection as it might be out a little.

See other posts on same subject for more info.  It has been discussed over and over on this site.

I have had a few very short outages during periods of heavy rains etc. But so far most if not all of the Shaw Channels I normally watch are viewable most of the time.  Maybe it's time to call your satellite dealer to either fine tune your antenna or if he deems it necessary, to increase the size of your satellite dish.

Needed a new LnB because it was bad OR because Shaw changed something that requires a new one in order to get those channels back I wonder???

 

The LnB was bad. Hadn't been changed in 8 years. Now everything in perfecto!

When I get that notice you have lost signal, I press guide and select a very strong channel like one of the US networks. So far it has always found the signal. It mostly happens when I am on a weaker channel like Cottage Life, which I watch a lot.
