Re the Llandrindod Wells relay transmitter work I see it states, Freeview: HD Digital TV Off Air from 09:00 on 22 May to 09:20 on 22 May.
Well, I dont have Freeview HD just the bog-standard Freeview Lite with the dismal 32 services.
Nevertheless, since 22 May that has been reduced to a mind-blowing 8 services. I have lost 75% of Freeview Lite - it is now Super Lite?
All missing services are BBC related, i.e. all I have now are the ITV, Channel 4 & 5 services these being ok with strong signal strength, unlike the others which have zero.
I still receive the full 32 services on the EPG - although even that showed only 8 after one reinstall attempt!
Can things get any worse (rhetorical question I know the answer)?

Hi Dave, Ive tried a manual tune but theres no signal strength available during that process (as per the auto tune/install), the only way I can access signal strength is on an individual service basis by selecting the Information option.
Re manual tune: I enter 39 then it starts scanning but soon scrolls up to 42, where it sits for a while and captures the 8 services on that channel. Then it continues on around the clock scanning, in vain, until the progress bar reaches 100% - all pretty similar to an auto tune, except an auto tune automatically installs what it finds and overwrites any old stuff. I did have it show a bit of interest in channel 39 yesterday, during an auto tune, but all that gave me was the full 32 services showing on the EPG when I selected any of the channel 39 (BBC) services it still said the program wasnt tuned.
Its not as if Ive moved anything equipment-wise and nothings popped up between the aerial and the transmitter which is situated fairly close. The fact I receive channel 42 stuff a-ok makes me feel as though someone has reduced the power output on 39?
