Noticed the same yesterday. Used to be able to lock (and decode) 3+
after 21.00 CET with sparkles. Yesterday, PERFECT picture from 19.00.
BTW : Sci-Fi is stopping on TV-SAT2 from March 31, then only available
from Sirius 2, let's hope that will bring more power to Cinema.

Annoying isn't it.
They get the time from the channels so if you pause on a European
channel, you get European time!
I found that if you manually set the time from the settings menu - using
the arrow keys to corect the time, you should be less hassled by it.

On the contrary, it's VERY likely that this is the cause of the trouble.
It certainly seemed to be the case for someone else with a similar
problem about a month ago: that thread was transferred to
rec.video.satellite.europe, because it doesn't have anything to do with
the a.s.tv.crypt group --- I'm transferring this thread too: Cc to
original poster in case he doesn't take that group.
AIUI, the Global SPS-1 (and indeed most other "smart" switches) operates
on the basis that one satellite receiver is counted as the master: when
it is on, it controls the LNB's polarity and band, and signals from the
LNB are passed back to that receiver. Only if the receiver is switched
off does the *other* receiver control the LNB, and receive signals from
the LNB. This would perhaps be useful for a set-up with an analogue
receiver that's already using a universal LNB, such that the LNB is
shared (but independently) with the digital receiver.
