Could Supraventricular Ectopic beats be the trigger of Nocturnal Sinus Tacycardia with Normal Rythm i get from time to time while off of Betablockers?

In brief: It is unlikely that

ectopic beats would trigger sinus tachycardia however it is possible that ectopic beats could trigger other forms of supra ventricular tachycardia both relatively slow or fast runs that might mimic sinus tachycardia.
Beta blockers would be reasonably effective at suppressing these ectopic rhythms.
