My TV keeps randomly switching to Channel 5 when I'm watching Channel 25. WHAT IS GOING ON AND HOW DO I MAKE IT STOP

I have a Sceptre LCD television. It is connected to a coax cable that feeds me uber-basic cable (basically just the local broadcast stations in HD, plus the local public television stations). I watch a lot of shows on Channel 25. Recently my TV started randomly doing this thing where it will suddenly switch to Channel 5 while I'm watching Channel 25. If I watch other channels there's no problem; it's only channels 25 and 5. No one's sitting on the remote or anything -- in fact, I removed the batteries from my remote, and it's still happening.
What could be going on?
Alternatively, does anyone know how to google this better than I'm apparently doing? Searching for "channel changes" or "channel switches" or "channel jumps" isn't doing it for me in the results.
Any help much appreciated!
