Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Midhurst transmitter area
It turned out that the original aerial installer didn't use a big enough poll (which was a scaffold pole cut to size) to clear the neighbours roof opposite our house! That and the trees behind the houses made for very poor reception. Now got the aerial on top of a nice 20ft poll and all mux's show 100% across the board! Fortunately the aerial is good quality I was told.

It might be more helpful if you were quite specific about WHICH channels that you had no signals for! AND provided a full postcode so that we can check the predicted reception for you location.
That said, Freshwater in general should have no problems receiving signals from Midhurst under normal circumstances.
There had been a lot of quite strong "Tropospheric Ducting" around causing interference, see Effect of tropospheric ducting on Freeview | RTIS for a simplistic explanation. It can be quite variable, come and go within seconds, minutes or hours. It has been particularly strong recently which can wipe out your reception.
If you happened to retune when you had no signal or it was badly pixellated, all it may have done is just clear correct tuning and may have tuned to other weaker transmitters maybe Hannington or Haslemere. The advice is NOT to retune in these conditions as you then have to repeat the retune when signals stabilise.
I'd suggest you unplug the aerial and do a full automatic retune which should clear all previous tuning.
Plug the aerial back in and repeat the retune which will hopefully restore all channels.
It would be a good idea if you checked in the TV Tuning section that you are tuned to the correct UHF channels for Midhurst, these are C48, C35, C36, C29, C34, & C33 in the order PSBs1-3, COMs4-6.
