    Hi
    I don't know if anyone can help us but we are in the picturesque Picos de Europa and our digibox has started playing up. It switches off after about 5 seconds then comes back on. It does this a few times and then gives up the ghost.

    With the football European cup coming up my husband is feeling very frustrated. Does anyone know any dealers in Oviedo, Leon, Gijon or Lugo where we are likely to be able to buy a new box or have the "zahinder" one looked at.

    Have tried looking on google but just seem to get lists of campsites. Please help to keep the peace in our van

    Firstly... Unscrew the "F" plug on the back of the receiver that goes to the dish and see if still powers down.
    There may be a chance of a short circuit on the cable. If the receiver stays on the investigate the cable and connections. The Lnb at the dish end very rarely short out so check that last.

    Also... Do you have the correct spelling ??! sure it's not this.. "ZEHNDER"

    Find a shopping center and look for a Wortens, Eroski, Cayetano, El Campo, or any major supermarket chain and you should be able to buy a cheap Freesat box,
    Or Leroy Merlin, Aki etc
