We have been unable to receive any channels from the Gt Missenden TV transmitter, normal channels and freeview, for two evenings now. Please advise what is wrong.

We have checked different televisions with different aerials and all are the same - no signal.

when will the engineering work at the Great Missenden transmitter be finished. We have had no signal for 3 days. There seems little point in trying to retune when there is no signal at all. we are at HP160EG

john obee: The engineering work was completed on 21st March. As this has resulted in all multiplexes at Great Missenden moving to new frequencies you will need to retune and may potentially require a new aerial (this can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line and will be free of charge if you don't have satellite or cable - see link below).
