CH: The Newhaven transmitter changed frequencies on 19th July and you will need to retune. You may also need a new aerial if you don't already have a wideband type, which should be available free of charge if you don't have satellite or cable by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

Thanks for replying. I have tried to retune. I have deleted all my channels. Set top box says database empty. But when I do a channel search, it doesn't find anything :( I was sort of hoping that it would just come back, given the yellow roadworks symbol at the top of this page (does this mean that there are works ongoing?).

CH: The engineering work was completed during the morning of 19th July. You should contact the Freeview Advice Line to arrange for a free aerial replacement, see the link in my previous reply.
