Paul Brookes: Frequency changes have nothing to do with being digital. It is down to the dates set by the frequency planners for changes to take place, which have to be co-ordinated across the entire transmitter network as well as with the availability of enough engineers to make the required changes at each transmitter.

I think also the double retune stems back to the DSO switchover.
If you remember, the BBC2 analogue signal was turned off before the rest of the other signals.
To me the current double retune, one week after the other has two reasons, firstly it warns people that something is going to happen and they need to make sure they know how to retune there boxes / tv, secondly when the other MUX's change frequency tomorrow morning, people have an idea when the transmitter is switched back on and it is safe to retune.
It will be interesting to see how much disruption is caused by this, many people shouldn't need a new aerial as a good c/d aerial should work on the new Brierley Hill frequencies, but communal aerials or older aerials may suffer a little more.
