I've also experienced a loss of channels since purchasing a new TV (Samsung), despite using exactly the same 'set top' aerial as previously.
The missing channels include: 18 (4music), 19 (Yesterday), 31 (5spike), 47 (FourSeven), 50 (Sony Movies +1), 62 (True Movies), 71 (CBS Drama), 79 (Dave +1), 81 (Talking Pictures), plus a few shopping channels and others that I'm not too bothered about - but at least they were all there last week!
Auto-tuning now gives me 106 TV/radio/data channels when the Freeview coverage checker says there should be 141 available at my address.
My postcode is SK12.
Any ideas on what the problem is and how I can fix it?

Moz: SK12 is Stockport by the way, so after a bit more research on your very informative site I've worked out I'm receiving signal from Winter Hill in Bolton and that the missing channels are all on 'COM6' - but I can't work out if that means they're gone forever, or if they'll they reappear at some point, or do I just need a new aerial?

That you are missing some channels when using a set top aerial is not surprising as they are very ineffective unless you are really close to the transmitter mast, typically less than 5 km away. The sollution is to have a wideband aerial fitted either on the chimney stack or in the loft if it can get a clear view of the transmitter and without any water tanks, etc in the line of view.
