Default Satellite switch

Hi, my Sky+ box in Italy has stopped working with the satellite change,
but a friend nearby in France with a Sky+ HD box is still getting BBC etc.

Is switching to a Sk+ HD box the long-term answer to this or is a bigger
dish needed ?

TIA

It depends how your installation compares over all with your
neighbour. If your dish is more than slightly smaller then a bigger
dish might be all you need. OTOH your LNB might not be as good or your
dish might not be so accurately aligned. The easiest rough and ready
test is to borrow your friend's receiver and see if that works; if it
doesn't then just changing your receiver might not cure the problem.
