Well, it seems that the transmitter came back on air at 1327hrs according to the BBC transmitter checker and it was "Off the air due to essential engineering". It also seems that Freeview haven't bothered to report the fact that it was off-air or the fact that there was Engineering Work!

Is the problem still continuing? I can't find any reports from the BBC or Freeview of transmitter problems at this time.
There is no Planned Engineering listed either.

All:

There is a major retune event on the 4th March. The transmitter will likely go off-air overnight and the multiplexes PSBs1-3 are changing UHF channel from aerial Group C/D to channels in aerial Group A. The transmitter may be off-air for several hours and may not be back on air until late morning or early afternoon.
The new channels are as follows, in the order PSBs1-3; C23, C26, C30;
People will need to retune and a Group A aerial may be needed for satisfactory reception of the multiplexes.

Anyone having problems receiving the PSB multiplexes may need a new aerial. Providing they don't have Cable or Satellite, they can get help for a free replacement aerial from Freeview by ringing 0808-100-0288 (a free call, but there might be long wait times on the phone!).

Retuning 4.3.20
This has caused the complete loss of ALL BBC channels (BBC1,2,4 News etc). I have retuned on 3 different sets and the results are the same - ok on Ch3,Ch4,Ch5 but not BBC.
Have just spent 40mins on the phone to Freeview who don't really understand the problem but will book an engineer in 8 days time!!!! I wanted to know what the aerial orientation should now be and whether a new aerial is required. If so why the hell should I pay for several new aerials?
Freeview need to fix this and fast - there must be several hundred people in this area with the same problem.
NB Manual tuning is not an option.

S S Stoker: If Freeview are sending an engineer then you won't need to pay for a new aerial (unless you have satellite or cable) as the work carried out is funded by a help scheme setup to provide new aerials for viewers whose existing aerials are not designed to receive the frequencies new in use. Stanton Moor has moved from the higher part of the UHF band to the lower part, so some viewers with older Group C/D aerials will need to have these replaced, which is what the engineer being sent by Freeview will do.

For your information, the only thing Freeview need to fix is their efficiency at dealing with the volumes of calls they are getting. The changes are all part of the 700MHz Clearance programme mandated by OFCOM What is 700MHz clearance? | Freeview
