John Lucibello :

I can't find any reports of faults at Dallington Park (or its parent Sandy Heath) in the last 5 days.
As you haven't given a full postcode, we can't check your predicted reception either.
The channels you've mentioned are carried on the ArqB/COM6 multiplex which is not transmitted from Dallington Park as it's a Freeview Light transmitter with only the 3 PSB multiplexes, so your aerial could be pointing at Sandy Heath (Anglia) or even possibly Waltham (Central).
For which TV channels are carried on which multiplex, see Channel listings for Industry Professionals | Freeview
you should also be missing other channels on ArqB/COM6.

There's also the possibility you may be suffering interference from a new/upgraded phone mast and perhaps had a postcard from https://restoretv.uk/post…ure/

When you found some channels missing (whatever the cause might have been) I hope you didn't retune - you cannot tune to signals that aren't there, the usual effect is to clear your correct tuning.
If you did retune, the signals may have returned and you won't know as you may no longer be tuned to them.

Without that full postcode, we can't offer any further advise other than to check some obvious things -
Check that your aerial is still pointing correctly and that the downlead isn't flapping in the wind. Check all you accessible coax connections to ensure there is no corrosion or water, and everything is plugged in correctly.
