I have the VT50 which is why I thought I could help cos the menu functions are basically the same so I went straight to it but it doesnt seem to hold which is annoying now that analogue is gone its just a fuzzy picture.
I did wonder if its forgetting its setting due to a knackered capacitor/battery has died inside cos you wouldnt really know if it is as he doesnt use freeview or freesat so if it forgot all the channels he wouldnt be able to tell.

G10 settings are found by Menu/Setup/Other settings/Power on preference/Select TV or AV.
It only seems to work for scart connections on my TV and not for HDMI.
I never noticed this as I watch standard TV at switch on.

I'm assuming the sky box is turned on before the tv is turned on, hdmi from sky box is connected to tv hdmi 1, and scart input is not connected to sky box?

Yes if the tv doesnt notice a signal on the Sky channel , it wont auto switch

Go into sky box and switch off the power saving so its on all the time
