Lots of questions

Have you checked the signal strength. Could anything have bumped the dish or moved it. You don't say where you are but Southern Ontario just had a lot of wind. Could the dish have been moved in wind. Are you in an area that has just had snow. Is it covered in snow and the LNBs blocked. Have you tried totally unplugging it from power and disconnecting inputs. Could it have lost its handshake with TV if connected by HDMI cables. Try disconnecting and reconnecting that cable to see if it makes a difference.

Good call on the list of possible causes LONSat. I too have had the very occasional lose of signal between my Sony AVR and Samsung TV due to HDMI issues. Easily solved by me powering down and up the AVR and TV. Never had to physically disconnect the cable.
