    Does anyone know of a satellite engineer in East Anglia, please.
    We have a trac-vision dome which needs to be told to lock onto Astra 2 to recieve Sky tv, have a spare sky box and will use our sky card when away, and we need help to set it up, as i am a technophobe.
    thanks
    Joe

    Don't know the system but if it's fully automatic it Possibly needs a software update or a new control unit.
    Satellite frequencies change all the time and if it can't find a particular frequency it won't lock on.

    No, if its automatic it will have a control box to tell the dish/dome what satellite to search for.
    It will most probably be separate from the dome and have its own power supply.
    This may be your problem if its turned off or a fuse has blown.
    It's location could be anywhere but try following the TV coax lead from the sky receiver which should take you to it.
