Digibox locking up on channel change or anything useful.

Watching Will & Grace on SubTV right now frankly because I don't have a choice, any button pushing gives me an instant lockup.
Happened a few days ago also, seems to have cleared up but it's really back with a vengeance.

Apua!

Can you provide some more details: Does rebooting the digibox help? Is this a repeating issue that occurs regularly? When the channel gets jammed and you try to change channel from the remote control, does the led on the front panel of the digibox react or not?
Rebooting doesn't help, channel comes back but if I press any buttons the screen goes black and it's frozen. It is a regular problem now, I almost dare to say that I think the box is broken. I have to go to the box and pull the power from the back everytime it locks up. IR commands are getting through to it but not much else happens i'm afraid.
Is the digibox near a fluorescent light source, like a flat TV ?
Fluorescent light emits ir light.

Okay, since the IR commands go thru I'm not convinced the box would be broken. Try to reset the box to factory settings using the second method (the step-by-step one) guided below (Google translate link since our support site is in Finnish only):

If that doesn't solve the issue do you have fluorescent lamps or other lights in the same room that are implemented with fluorescent lamps like TV's backround light etc.? Those can distract IR receivers and cause similar issues you are having.
After resetting the box it seems to be ok until I enable timeshifing (by plugging in a USB device) then it starts locking up constantly. Tried several usb sticks and drives and the same result.

Alright, almost solved then. Did you also try the USB stick that comes with the Viihde package? Are you able to format the stick with the digibox? If not, format it with your PC to FAT32 and try again.
Yep formatted it with FAT32, using the 2gb stick. Let's see what happens in a day or so.
