Default Problem with Setanta Part XII - and I got SKY not freeview

I have a Sky box, have done for years, got the full whack of channels and never had a problem.

So last month I decided to get Setanta for the Clinton Woods fight and because there was sooo much boxing coming up on Setanta.

However not once has there been a picture that I could watch for any of the fight - I even stayed up vainly for the Barrera fight.

The pitcure is OK for some of the football or NASCAR or stuff like that but never for the boxing.

I either get a pixelated screen or a blue screen with "no signal" - anyone else get this or know whats wrong. Once again its just the Setanta channels no other channels.

**** man don't be telling me this ****. I'm getting my sister to get Setanta in for the Calzaghe Kessler fight and i don't need to be hearing this!!!

BTW, do you get all Setanta channels when you subscribe or do you only get a certain few? I don't want to get it in and then have the JC/MK fight on another Setanta station

Welcome to ESB slapbangwhallop!

This is the third thread in the last week (in the brit section) critical of Setanta for one reason or another.

Not exactly a good advertisement - shame considering some of the fights they have coming up.

Wonder if they have a refund policy?

Get on to Setanta about it , I've heard from a person on another forum that anything his Setanta gets an unwatchable signal whenever he contacts them they're able to magically boost it(do what they should of in the first place) .

Get their number on speed-dial for when Calzaghe v Kessler is on

The British coverage is fine but when it's comes to US fights it's like watching Youtube on the telly, can't get it to fit the screen correctly...sucks.
