liz krauesslar: Put your postcode into the site, and it will bring up what sort of signal you should get, but almost certainly your system is at fault, and thats why you've lost various channels.
Check your cables, starting from behind the TV. It could be no more than a loose cable connection or a damaged cable. If you can't find any problems and nothing has got better, then you might need to call out a professional.
