Is it just us but for the last week at exactly 1,20 all fransat channels slowly fade and there's no signal (Eutelsat 5a West) it comes back later but I've never stayed to see when, before and after both signal strength and quality are good.
Does anyone else have this problem?

Could this be the infamous "sun fade", where the sun lines up behind the satellite and the dish, where the sun overpowers the satellite signal

Yes Peake I had thought of that as it's stopped now, if the dish pole wasn't in a retaining wall in front of which after all the recent rain it's a bog I would have stood behind it to line it up.
First time it has happened though.
