There are two other things worth noting.

Apart from providing that full postcode, so we can look at predicted reception, Heathfield has been currently listed for Planned Engineering so it's possible this may have had an effect on your reception of the HD multiplex. IF you retuned when you had no signal / badly pixellated picture, it most likely will have cleared the correct tuning.

IF you have retuned check in your TV Tuning Section that your are correctly tuned to Heathfield's UHF channels.
In the order BBCA/PSB1, D3&4/PSB2, BBCB HD/PSB3, SDN/COM4, ArqA/COM5, ArqB/COM6
The UHF channels are C41, C44, C47, C40, C43, & C46
See Channel listings for Industry Professionals | Freeview for which channels are carried on which multiplex.

The other issue that could have compounded matters is Current weather conditions -
Tropospheric Ducting - causing interference from more distant transmitters in Europe or the UK. This can be very variable and is usually short term at any instant but conditions have been persisting for several days, different parts of the UK are being affected at different time. Both Freeview and the BBC have issued warnings about short term interference to reception.

If you are only missing the HD multiplex, try a manual retune of UHF C47.

Hi - why is ITV Meridian on Rowridge I.O.W transmitter the wrong one for Southampton / New Forest? SD chaneel 3 is correct with Meridian but HD channel 103 is SE Kent area?

Barry Surman: There is only one version of ITV Meridian HD on Freeview. The work that took place earlier this year to roll out BBC One HD regions on Freeview has paved the way for the full rollout of ITV HD regions, however ITV have yet to announce any timescale for this to happen.
