With others comments and the rest of the background you are providing I
would almost guarantee that you are having a heat issue.

If there is no warranty per se or if the access is easy, it might be
worthwhile opening the box and ensuring no build up on the inside. Also
check for capacitors burst etc, (I have no idea what your contract with
sky says about doing such)

And if the timing is messing up that might be a suitable reason to have
them replace it. One really should not be having such difficulties with
a STB.
