sky problem every sunday

my sky plus box every sunday between 4pm and 6pm,. i recieve no signal being recieved up to 4 and after 6 is fine every other day of the week no problem. sky say must be problem with box ,i changed my box and still the problem can anyone help please

If there is a reasonable signal level during that period with very low quality, then this a sign of outside inference either at RF frequencies into the cabling (WiFi devices, Amateur radio enthusiast, Tetra radio transmitter, electrical equipment in or near your property - central heating pumps etc) or microwave frequencies into the lnb at the dish (radar, local microwave link, microwave security system, car radar speed camera detectors). These are just a few sources of interference to satellite reception I have come across in last 25 years.

Does this happen to all channels or just a few channels (if so a list please).

As the issue is very very specific then I would not be surprised the it's a local source of interference as covered by davemurgatroyd2.
The odds are unless the installer arrives between 4 and 6 on a sunday then nothing he can do would make a difference.
