For the past 5 days we have been having trouble receiving all the channels we used to eg 400 for CFL football. We heard there have been some solar flares which are affecting reception. Any thoughts?
I previously wrote posts about our system's Dish Network satellite reception and the possibility of solar flares - since the problems were happening worst between 9 AM and 3 PM. It turned out that I had 2 LNBs that were slowly failing in similar ways, and the problems only appeared when the sun was beating onto them - overheating circuitry damaged by a previous lightning storm electrical surges. The weakened LNBs partially failed on only some transponders when the sun beat on them - showing false signs of solar flare influence & tuning problems.
