If the work isn't being done overnight why have I had very few channels for nearly 24 hours solid? No BBC and many others were missing all night and now into the following day. From memory I have around 6-8 working channels as of 09:17 on 29th

Nothing was wrong until Thurs 28th

For the past month or so one TV I have has been using incorrect channel numbers and I don't know how to get it to use correct numbers or if there is something wrong somewhere. I wiped the channels and did a retune which got the correct numbers but within 24 hours the incorrect numbers were back.
To add to the issue, I have 3 devices using the same aeriel but with only one showing incorrect numbers so to my mind it isn't the aeriel. The TV in the bedroom and a media centre PC with 4 tuners use correct numbers but the LG TV in the front room are showing as below:

ITV 800
CH4 805
CH5 811
ITV2 802
ITV3 801
E4 808
Film4 806
More4 807
ITV4 803

UHF CH 35 586000kHz Bandwidth 8MHz Signal Strength 100% Signal Quality 100%

looking on this site the channel numbers from CH35 shouldn't be 800 etc but with the number of times channels are moved, renumbered and the recent outage I'm wondering if this has anything to do with it

Thanks for any pointers

Thanks for your help Chris.
I had removed the aerial during one of the retunes but hadn't powered down the TV for 10 minutes, or checked the auto-update. I did both last night and the channels are back to their correct numbering. I'll keep an eye on things to see if the auto-update can go back on.
