My Freeview box has no EPG, is blank on FIVE, ITV3, ITV4, ITV2+

Sony RDR-HXD870: retunes OK but each day receives a message "new channel found, data updated" and all the channels disappear. Aerial on roof with booster and other freeview box (newer, Humax)upstairs working fine. When Sony freeview box loses its channels it changes from RF27 signal to RF45 signal. I can't find any way of stopping the Sony box updating and losing the channels (I've stopped the only update feature I can find - for software, I think) but no luck. There is a Sky box also connected to same TV as Sony freeview box. Any comments would be most appreciated.

Hi KMJ, Derby
Thanks for comments, very helpful. I have since found and installed a firmware upgrade from Sony. Unfortunately I still lose the channels, but now in a different way - when the machine switches to standby. I feel you are on the right track, suggesting the analogue tuner as the culprit - just got to find a way of disabling it. I've asked Sony, but not holding my breath!
