The output power of the transmitters does not change at all, remaining the same throughout the day and night.

Lost channels 7 and 50 from Waltham transmitter after March 4 retune (and 5 more retunes). This applies to 2 TVs and 2 PVRs. Grantham.

According to the 700MHz clearance document covering Waltham Freeview | All your favourite TV shows, all in one place and all for free sites/default/files/2019-11/2020_Central_Date_Release.pdf,">…pdf, the Local multiplex moved UHF channel from C26 to C41, you could try a manual retune on C41 but do check that the programmes haven't been pushed into the 800s LCNs in your EPG - if so you'll need to delete them - easiest way is usually to unplug the aerial, carry out a full retune which should clear all previous tuning as no channels found, plug the aerial back in and repeat the full retune.

However, the power was also reduced to 2kW from 5kW, now it might be assumed that this would be because there'd be less co-channel interference on the new channel, BUT no so in many districts around Grantham (not the central area) Emley Moor can be received which also uses C41 (IMHO moving the local mux to C41 was a stupid idea, there must have been a clearer channel?). Because of this, even with your close proximity to Waltham (about 8km away) you may be unlucky, it's going to depend on your precise location and aerial alignment and polar response could be critical.

Have a look in your TV's tuning section for details of the signal strength and quality on C41. If you have lots of signal (maybe even 100%) but low or 0% quality, there's just too much interference.
You could put your details into the Freeview coverage checker Freeview | All your favourite TV shows, all in one place and all for free scroll down and select Detailed view and see what's predicted for your location.
If in fact you are getting too much interference, you could try complaining to Freeview on 0808-100-0288 try option 3. You'll no doubt get a "bad luck" type response but try persisting and state you want the matter escalated as to why C41 used by Emley Moor was picked and not another clearer channel. Good luck.
Post back with an update, we'd be interested to hear.

Thanks for the very useful information.

It is possible to pick up two transmitters here (depending on sensitivity of tuner and/or position of aerial). Both were installed by the previous owner and strongest signal downstairs is BBC E. Midlands with (2nd aerial)Yorks & Lincs. upstairs.

I thought of the 800s initially but there was nothing there and I phoned the Freeview helpline. I was told that Notts TV and Sony Classic Movies should be available and a retune with aerial unplugged should make a difference.

It didn't.

I did wonder if there might have been a reduction in signal strength and it looks like that is the case since a manual tune reveals no signal at all on 41 (upstairs or down)!!

Hardly the point but I've since realised that Sony Classic is available on Freesat!

Thanks for the update, I'm surprised you have no signal at all on C41. I would have expected some, but with 0% quality. At least you can get it on Freesat then, that's something (until it snows of course!).
