When we were watching TV this morning, at between about 12 and 1pm I think, we lost all satellite signal.
We are on Digital Sky TV in the UK.
I went to the technical menu and there was absolutly NO signal, ID transponder or anything. The weather was fine, though even during the heaviest
rainstorms when we lose picture, we still get a signal reading and transponder ID.
This lasted for at least 1 minute, and then the system seemed to some back online. As they use a constellation of satellites, even if 1 went down I
would still expect the others to be operating? Unless something affected them all.
Wondered if anyone else noticed this and what may have caused it, like maybe solar flare or something?
