DirecTV Problems in Cold Weather
I live in NJ and it's been pretty cold lately (15- 25 degrees). A few times last week, I lost the satellite for an entire night. Once I lost it well into the next morning. Tonight, the temp has dropped into the low 20's and the picture has started to pixulate (is that the right word?). The picture is breaking up into small boxes.
I called D-TV and they told me to see if there is any snow or ice in the dish. I did and it is clear. They also thought there maybe some water/ice in the LNBs. Is this possible? I would think an outdoor device would be made water tight. Since I can not get to the dish (roof is too steep), I may have to call for service.
Any other thoughts?
