Thanks again, Geoff D.

Our LNB is fairly new - it replaced one that had developed a crack at the edge of the casing facing the dish, causing issues with a large swathe of channels.

So the problem was bigger than we knew? I cn't see those channels anyway so did not notice them being missing.

Wonder if it had anything to do with a switch over to the disaster recovery site in Midrand maybe?
Spare decoders: SD PVR(3) PSU's, DSD 660, 1110, 1131, Explora 1.
Spare switches and LNBs: 1 x 5-1(repaired); 1 x 5-2.Numerous so called faulty LNBs that were easily repaired.
2 unmentionable FTA decoders
1.2m antenna, 8-way universal LNB, 2 x (2x6) MS, FSM permanently connected.

Hi Team

The tech team suspect there could have been a temporary broadcast problem which should have been resolved now...

We are able to view all of these channels on our decoders.
