Humax Freesat was working fine then lost signal and now is not reognising postcode. We have unplugged/repluged, checked all cables (all OK) and tried to restart but as it is now not recognising postc
This can happen if the dish is slightly misaligned. I believe the postcode tables are read from a satellite which is about 0.3 degrees away from the Astra satellites. If your dish is slightly misaligned it may not be able to receive it correctly, also the following is the standard procedure which you've probably already been through, but I hope it helps:
1. Freesat Detection Fails / Invalid Postcode
- Unplug the Foxsat-HDR from the mains and unplug the cable from your dish which is connected to the LNB IN
- Check that the "F-type" connector is firmly on the end of the cable.
- Power on the and follow the Installation Wizard again.
2. If still not Detecting the signal or verifying postcode
- Select NEXT through the Installation Wizard and then FINISH at the end.
- Press the OK button to enter the SETUP menu and Select Manual Tune.
- Select the following Transponder (11428 H 27500 A) from the list of Transponders.
- Check that you are receiving stable levels for both Signal Strength & Signal Quality or >50%.
- If you are not receiving sufficient Signal on this Transponder then you may require an installer to check your
Dish Alignment, LNB, cabling, or connectors.

This can be for any number of reasons including weak signals from those stations, a poor antenna, or a defective tuner in the receiver.
Without more information I can't even make a guess as to which one is your problem.
Just because you used to be able to get some stations before they went digital it does not mean you will be able to receive them with the same antenna and a new digital tuner. This has been written by many people besides me on a number of DTV web sites.
