Well, you may/should have seen pop-up messages on your TV screen telling you to retune on the 5th February if you are actually receiving signals from the Elland relay transmitter. However the Freeview Detailed Coverage checker doesn't predict any coverage!! A different predictor doesn't show coverage from Elland, even though it's the closest, it's very low power. Another shows that the Halifax relay should give you a reasonable signal.
So it will depend on which way your aerial is pointing. For Elland it should point roughly NE and the aerial rods should be horizontal.
It's obviously a very difficult spot for reception.
(For the Halifax relay the aerial should point roughly NNW with rods vertical).
If you've tried a retune, try once more, but unplug the aerial first, do a retune which should clear all previous tuning, plug the aerial back in and repeat the retune. If you are still not receiving anything, then it may be that you have an old C/D group aerial, and the transmitter has now changed to Group A, but if you have a wideband aerial you should be ok.
If it's the case of an old aerial, you should be able to get free help from Freeview phone 0808-100-0288
Post back and let us know how you get on, you might have a problem if Freeview say you have no coverage!

The transmitter isn't listed at present for Planned Engineering which could explain this. Do you know what sort of time they return?
I'm wondering if there's some sort of interference, but can you confirm when this started? Was it after the retune event, or did it start before then?
