Are you able to use a SCART cable?

It may be that the rf signal from one of the boxes (sky or freeview) is trying to use a channel (21-69)that is recieving a signal from the aerial

If you read the instruction books you will find how to change the rf output on each box to a channel that has no signal

You can find such a channel by connecting the aerial co-ax dirctly to the tv leaving the other boxes disconnected

Then scroll through channels 21-69 making a note of those where you simply get a clean screen with no signal

Then adjust the rf outputs on both boxes to ensure they each use one of these channels

Sorry, I see you have a digital tuner within the tv

The same basic principle applies although the answer may well be to use a scart cable between the sky box and the tv and then watch the sky pictures on AV1 or whatever

Does the tv have an analogue tuner as well?

If you want to receive stereo sound from your Sky box, then you MUST use a SCART rather than an aerial connection. It will alslo improve the quality of the picture over even a good aerial connection.

You should also have a second SCART from the Sky box to whatever recording device you use (if any).

Yes, you will need a Scart lead for Sky. By passing the Sky signal through the booster you are overloading the TV receiver.
