Re-tuned to no avail... Brand new house brand new arial fitted... worked very well until a few days ago and now missing channels (ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 etc basically channels within 2 groups) Where are they now and why can't I receive them anymore?

Two frequency interference
What to do when Freeview reception is perfect, but several channels are missing, and they are all on just the two 'multiplexes'.

So... what is the solution??????? (53.0916,-1.2495)

Rudy Walker: the page really talks more about why it might be two frequencies that are a problem, and not really anything to fix it...

Thank you for your prompt response.
The mode: Yes understood
The location: Post code is NG17 8RJ... a brand new street, and am not altogether confident in the predictor! The coverage here has since moving in, in January, been perfect (from Waltham) on all DTV and analogue channels, until 30 March when I re-tuned as advised and lost Mux A and again on 13 April where I lost Mux 2! I can't see a clash on C57 as it is currently not used, well not until August anyway.
The Nottingham transmitter: Would it be beneficial to switch to this transmitter, bearing in mind I am only 7.3km away from it, albeit slightly NW?
The Twist: I performed another complete re-tune this evening (as advised by the note appearing on my screen)... and picked up Mux A (C29) with a 'good' signal quality & a 'very strong' signal level (but still no Mux 2(C31)... signal quality 'poor' & signal level '0-50% fluctuating'
Conclusion: It seems that without doing very much myself, half the problem has solved itself!!! Are they still working on the "problem"?
Once again many thanks for your input (53.0916,-1.2495)

Does this mean I now have "single frequency interference"
I am not sure how to proceed here as;
Local analogue interference: I don't have Sky, Virgin etc, just a DTV with built-in Freeview. No VCR or PVR, but I do have an X-Box games console, however this is turned off and unplugged.
Non-wideband aerial: I have a brand new wideband aerial, however it's use seems somewhat redundant as I understand it Mux 2 is not an 'out of group' multiplex on Waltham transmitter.
Any suggestions or should I just wait it out for all engineering works to be completed
