Burns .: Try retuning with the aerial disconnected (make a note of any planned recordings first) which should result in all channels being deleted, the reconnect the aerial and retuning again should result in all of your channels reappearing on the correct numbers.

Dale: Rather than blaming technology, try looking for a fault with your aerial system (check for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV etc).
