On first change over to digital from Rowridge transmitter every thing was fine and all channels had high signal strength.
For the last three days I have had low or no signal for five channels. Retuning does not pick up the channels or picks them up with low signal strength. A broken up picture appears and the the screen goes blank with a heading " Channel not tuned.
Digital UK tell me the reason is due to work being carried out on the transmitter and they only get progress reports once a week they do not know when the work will be completed. They also advise not to retune whilst the work is being carried out for fear of losing channels.
How will we know when it is safe to retune ?

What was the point of changing the channel numbers of Dave and Yesterday up until this change over I enjoyed excellent coverage. Now Dave on 12 the picture breaks up and 19 Yesterday my HD recorder tells me it is not available. I have retuned four or five times aday and get the same answers. It would happen to one of my favourite programms.
My transmitter is Rowridge and about ten miles from it. My aerial is in the loft.
I have a Sony HD Twin disc recorder set top box which has performed exellently until this programme switch and was expensive as far as set top boxes are concerned
