I'm not sure if anyone will be able to answer this as even I have no idea what's going on, but here goes anyway:

our Freeview reception tends to work about 90% of the time but I believe that is due to problems with the aerial when it decides to break up the picture. We are probably going to get that fixed at some point. The query however is can anyone tell me why certain Sky channels are interrupting Freeview reception?

downstairs we have the usual Sky box (the normal one, not HD) connected to the TV as usual and Freeview downstairs has more channels than the TV's upstairs. However when you switch the TV on to one of the UKTV channels (such as Watch, Alibi or Gold) BBC1 and BBC2's Freeview connection goes, plus it will normally reduce the reception of the other muxes and won't come back until you switch it to a Sky channel that the TV deems "suitable". It does happen with quite a few of the shopping channels as well but I really have no idea what is causing it

I don't particularly think it's anything to do with Freeview itself so it's probably something to do with the Sky box. Anyone seen this before and can maybe offer a solution?
