Heathfield Transmitter - BBC Four HD - gone AWOL

We had BBC Four HD from Heathfield recently, but after a retune it does not appear on the station list on the TV.
Oddly, BBC Four HD does appear in the tuning list under Channel 47 ok (perfect signal) while it is retuning.

Steve T: As above, BBC 4 HD received a temporary increase in coverage for the duration of the Olympics. It has now returned to it's normal broadcast capacity on COM7, which is not transmitter from Heathfield. The BBC 4 HD you saw on UHF C47 is the temporary version which now only carries the retune message and should appear at channel 790 if you've retuned since it was changed on Tuesday.

Mine said you had to retune but if it did not come back you had use SD.
Mine did return, looks like BBC messed things up with their messing about for the Olympics.
Wish they would leave things alone.

David: Nothing was messed up, the message about BBC 4 being in SD on channel 9 was because BBC 4 HD is now only available to around 70% of households via Freeview, as it was before the Olympics.

OK - so no Four HD unless Heathfield broadcasts on com7. C'est la vie as they say.

Brian Gregory: Hi, Brian Gregory. Brian Butterworth, the owner and 'webmaster' of this UKFREE.TV website, two weeks ago fixed the issue you reported concerning radio pages. Had you not noticed that this had been done? Richard, Norwich.
