Simbo1943: Check the signal strength - if its very low, sounds like your system has a problem, and its the first mux to go.

DAve is rubbish reception here in sy8 (shropshire) it has crashed my sky box twice now. My dad who lives a 1000yds down road has bad reception which always seems to start around 7pm when good programs start so have to turn over to something else because pixel picture and squeaking audio very bad . The frequency which dave broadcasts on needs to be stronger and more stable. I came home the other night after leaving my house with sky on dave channel to find it had locked up my entire box and had to turn it off to do a reset.

edd: Your sky box is on...Sky. Your dad has freeview, which is an entirely different system, but its a good start to check signal strength.

Further to that said by MikeB, it would appear that your Sky box has a fault that needs attention. It is nothing to do with Freeview at all.
