I was losing my signal too often (I have Dish), and I thought it might be because the multiswitch was originally installed out in the open, on the arm of the dish mount, and was completely exposed to the elements.
So I had them come out, and they switched the LNB with one of those newer ones that has the switch encased within, and it rarely ever goes out now.
Even when it does, it's never for more than a half minute. When I had Comcast, it would go out everytime we had a really severe thunderstorm, and it would be for hours at a time.
We have our share of cloudy weather here in northern Illinois, too.
