Wow, thought I was the only one with this issue as I've been checking out transmitter information most of the weekend. The rest of my weekend has been spent replacing various parts of aerial cable and booster, spent about £40 so far! Plus keep re-tuning my TV and getting 22 BBC channels only.
Wish I could re-align to Mendip, but I was told when I moved into the house that it would require a 15 foot pole on top of the house!

Re-tuned after getting back from work and all back to normal it seems, so guess the technicians work on Mondays and fixed things. It would have been nice to have seen some information somewhere on the fault though.
