I had a similar problem with my 1000D.  But it was only 
with very
strong signals.  Ended up finding the Tx PIN diode was 
leaky and
messing up the input to the receivers.  Replaced it with a
1N4007 power supply diode.  It's been fine since.
Check the diodes towards the front end.  I actually found 
it with
just an ohm meter.
