The terms Foxsat and freeview don't go together. Is it a Foxsat box that uses a dish and the freesat EPG?

Either the fault is internal, or you have a source of infra-red flicker in the room which is being confused for a "menu" button press.

Cover the Foxsat with a thick cloth (temporarily!) and see if the problem goes away. If not, try turning off and on again at the mains. If it still doesn't go away but you can get some kind of control over it, the may be a "restore factory defaults" menu option to try - I can't advise further on that as I am not a Foxsat owner.

If the cloth trick stopped the menu flashes, remove all remote control handsets from the room and you should be able to pin down the source of the interference. Fluorescent lamps (including the compact light bulb replacements) are known to be a problem, particularly the early types. Lamps on dimmer switches can also create IR interference. Alternatively you might find a stuck button on a remote control handset - the digital cameras on phones can show up the emitter.

When you press a button on the remote control which of the white buttons at the top of the remote flashes red ?
The last 'white button' to be selected will continue to flash when ever a non white button is pressed, until a new 'white button' is pressed, indicating that you have selected a new unit to be controlled

I know that, just making sure the OP remote is actually talking to the Foxsat.
