      Are you certain that it's 3 minutes after switching on the Sky box -- or 3 minutes after switching on the TV set? The latter is more common, since TV sets emit lots of interference, especially when warming up.

      If it's definitely the Digibox, dump it and buy a newer one.

      Thanks for the replys. I will try these and any other suggestions I may get when I am next at the holiday house. Will report back how I get on.
