Loss of signal

While watching a program and it starts raining, even slightly with a slight wind, the program comes to a halt with a loss of signal indication. What could be the problem? The dish? Genie unit? Plus, I have to wait for the weather to calm down before reception is regained and I can continue watching the program.

Agree with @Constructive ... sounds like your dish is slightly out of alignment. It gets a good enough signal during clear, calm weather, but bad weather quickly ruins the signal. You can refer to some of the do-it-yourself videos on Youtube that show you how to use the satellite settings from your receiver to check your dish alignment. You could also call 800.531.5000 for a billable tech call; be prepared for long delays.
