Check here http://www.lyngsat.com/hotbird.html that the program you want exists.  You should be able to receive many programmes. 

It is unlikely that the box has reset itself but if you are certain it has then it may have an autotune/search mode which will take 20 minutes or so to scan the entire satellite frequency range and polarisations and  build a new database.   Don't do this till you have a good signal on one carrier - which you can tune manually using a sample from the lyngsat data.

Moisture and corrosion of the pin and the inside of the cable at the LNB F connector are a likely cause of signal deterioration if the antenna is still fixed solid in its bracket.  The aluminium film braid may have turned to powder over several feet length inside the cable sheath.

Happy Christmas, Eric.
