Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Winter Hill transmitter area
There are 6 HD channels (and 2 SD) on the BBCB HD multiplex - BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Ch4, Ch5 & CBBC are the HD ones.
Are they all missing? Have there been any power cuts in the area? I can't find any reports of problems at the transmitter from Freeview or the BBC.
Have you changed anything lately? HDMI leads near unscreened/poorly screened flyleads/aerial leads can cause interference.
If you happened to retune when the signal was missing, this generally just clears the correct tuning and you need to retune again when signals are normal.
I would check that your aerial seems intact and pointing in the correct direction and that your downlead looks undamaged (especially if it is old). Also check all your coax plugs, connections, flyleads etc, unplug connectors check for corrosion or other problems and reconnect them. Flyleads are a common problem, try swapping/changing them. See what signal strengths and quality you are getting for the other multiplexes (groups of channels) shown in your TV's tuning section.
Problematic connections, water ingress etc. can seem to affect reception of just AN individual or several multiplexes.

Can't find any evidence of faults at the Millom Park transmitter from either Freeview or the BBC.
If you retuned when you had no signal (for whatever the reason) this will most likely have just cleared the correct tuning and you'll need to retune when signals are normal. If your set automatically retuned by itself (turn that function off, it's more trouble than it's worth) the the result will be the same.
Try a manual retune on UHF channel C25 (PSB2 at Millom Park).
If you happen to be getting your signals from Winter Hill it's C34.
If you can't manual tune, do an automatic one.
If you still have problems, post back with a full postcode so we can check predicted reception at your locale.
