"OK. Have you checked signal strengths on each mux and each of your boxes? Could be a failing LNB losing the weaker mux occasionally. Or maybe it just wants the skew angle tweaking?"

Here are the instructions for adding Trackside & C4 on a G7500.  

To view the C4 & Trackside EPG, try it from another channel (not from C4 or Trackside) .  As far as I know the Sky Guide is currently not compatible with the Freeview EPG
