I have HUMAX Model FOXSAT-HDR Bought in Jan 2011 which is now discontinued.
In the last 2 months I started to see an error message stating “no or bad signal or the channel is currently unavailable or scrambled” on 3 three radio stations – heart (channel 733), absolute 80’s (channel 726) & smooth radio UK (channel 732). All my free sat TV channels are fine. All BBC radio stations work fine as well. This occurs when there is no stormy/windy weather on fine weather days to move the satellite dish about.
I checked all the cabling in case of loose connections & removed & re-inserted those cables including the HDMI one. I have turned on & off the HUMAX top box & did a factory re-install to default settings which worked & all my TV channels including radio channels were re-installed after an initial message stating "check your satellite antenna cable connection". I am based in London (zone 2) so reception should be good & I doubt the 3 radio channels changed their frequency nor someone knocking my SKY satellite dish to be out of alignment. I was also told the satellite dishes are quite sturdy but there maybe a problem with the LMB blackbox on the dish?
I read some blogs online & they state the tuner on the humax unit could be on its way out due to the age of the model & that Humax kit has some signal reception sensitivity issues?
Does any know how to fix this issue on the 3 radio stations concerned.
