Hi Martin, I presume you have done a full retune?
If so, what type of equipment are you using?
Did you tune the BBC channels in after the first switch?

Hi Jonathan
I have a Technika HD box, which picked up the digital BBC channels after Wednesday 7th. Now I'm getting nothing after trying a full retune.
