Mark: The transmitter engineering posts on the previous comments page report that the transmitter was off air from 26th to 30th November, which seems to be the result of the loss of mains power caused by the recent storm. If you retuned whilst the transmitter was off air then you have most likely deleted the tuning data from your TV and will need to retune again. Or have you lost signal again since 30th November?

Jane Bellamy :
The only information available is "From 9:35:03pm on 30th Jan 2022 Off the air due to a fault".
My guess from general news reports would be that the power lines are down.
Do NOT retune, as this will most likely just clear the correct tuning as no channels will be found, then you won't know when it's back on air without constant retuning!
