When coming back from town, the sky was very dramatic, so took some photos.
The satellite was playing up on Saturday. The picture was pausing and the talking was skipping. So called Bell Canada and spoke to a lovely lady in Orillia who walked me through a series of things and then told me it was probably due to the fog and it should get better later in the day.
Second call, spoke to a lovely gentleman in Montreal, who after repeating everything we had done prior, tells me I need a new box and put one on order to be delivered on Tuesday? We were heading out so went upstairs to get changed and decided to see if the TV worked in the bedroom; it did. So dh decided to switch out the boxes until we get the new one on Tuesday.
Come back in and dh switches out the box and it doesn't work in the family room? Dh checks a couple of the connection's outside, but it is too slippery and too windy to go up the 30 foot ladder to reach the actual dish. So I talk to a lovely gentleman in Toronto this time, and after repeating everything we had done the two prior times and then talking to dh to make sure he had connected everything correctly (which by the way didn't go down well!!) decided that it must be the wire outside and we need to get a technician out. They should be here on Wednesday. That did not go down well with dh so on Saturday night he set up a new coaxial cable from upstairs to the family room, so that we have TV down stairs until they come and repair it.
Meanwhile the Toronto guy tells me the Montreal guy never ordered a new box for us? Thank goodness dh is very, very handy. Now I just have to make sure I don't trip over the cable. The house looks as though a bloody bomb has dropped in it; one day it will be tidy again!!!
