Getting a weird error on both my Uno's.

Over the last few weeks, a couple of channels have started to freeze every 10 seconds, anywhere from 5-30 seconds before resuming and freezing again.
its the same few channels on both receivers, mixture of SD and HD chans, freeview and premium.
Snr on the channels is 40-70%.

Updated the firmware to blackhole 2.0.3 and now to 2.0.5, still same problem.
Checked the cables from the lnb, they seem fine.
Done a full tuner rescan, problem persists.

Anything else I can try?

signal 40-70 is quite low in my opinion mate.

What our the other frequencies like for signal to noise ratio?

I'll check when i get home.
funny thing is some channels in sd are at 40% snr, others are hd at 80% and they freeze.
yet other channels at those levels are fine.
i was thinking it might be the dish alignment or a dodgy lnb. we've had some heavy rain and strong winds in my area over the last year or two.

As the guys say check all connections LNB and dish (easy ones first) etc,also have you thought about updating bouquets or re doing them.?
