The message says "Over the next week Sutton Coldfield ... maintancence work".
BUT it has been longer than 2 weeks.
So how many more weeks ?
or when is the work expected to finish ?
Has anyone any ideas or comments ?

Re.- "maintancence work... Digital UK provide this information on a week-by-week basis."
Previously "detailed information" was easy to find.
I did search, but could only find the information on the map.
The link for "detail information" is not very noticeable.
Thanks for your help.

I have been having problems for a few weeks with different channels.
Rescanning some times makes it better, other times worse.
I went to a neighbour and they have had similar problems.
Wednesday I had 45 channels.
At 1am I rescanned and now have 110 channels !
Most are "Midlands" some are "East Midlands", so perhaps there is currently some weather conditions effecting reception.
ALSO apparently "there have been no changes to the Sutton Coldfield transmitter", so why are multiple commenting on channel issues ?

Can anyone suggest the relevant transmitter.
I am suddenly receiving extra TV channels.
All the transmitters I have checked, seem to have BBC TV channels at the lowest frequency.
The additional TV channels, start with lowest frequency TV channels are (i.e. should all be on the same MUX)-
ITV1 , ITV2 , ITV1+1 , Channel 4 , More 4 , E4
(I believe the MUX should be lower than UHF channel 41)

Briantist: My previous post -
"Can anyone suggest the relevant transmitter ... suddenly receiving extra TV channels"
The aerial direction had not changed (Sutton Coldfield), the transmitters in line with the aerial did not match the frequencies of the additional channels we are receiving.

Looking through your posts I came across -
UK TV Frequency map - channel C21 (474.0MHz) before switchover map | - independent free digital TV advice

I love this web site.
