Have two almost new digital T.V sets, built in Freeview, brand new aerial, located on roof. Perfect viewings till Tuesday 12th April around mid-day.I had lost channel 16, most of the 20's, with remainder poor quality. I contacted Digital.uk, who talked me through re-tune, TWICE, and after some 30 minutes I was advised to contact ITV. This I did, to be told that work was being carried out on the Brierley Hill Transmitter until approx 23rd April. I then contacted Panasonic who once again instructed me on re-tuning, unplugging, etc., some channels re-appeared, but after three attempts at re-tuning I was advised to contact Freeview, no luck there. Today, 14th April, 2-00pm I am still missing channels 16, 20, 23 and others which I assume will be referred to as multiplex. What is going on, and when can we expect the service we not only rely on, but pay for too. HELP !!!
