BWinter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter

My postcode is FY1 2RP. Nothing has changed at my end - both equipment systems are the same as before the re-tune, and both aerials are recent, one only a few months old. The Freeview "detailed coverage" page with all the technical charts shows COM7 and COM8 shaded orange for my postcode, with numerals 18/99 - which I suppose shows that reception may be poor. But the simple fact is that a week ago I could receive all these missing 20 channels and now I can't - which suggests that something external has changed. I do realise that a few have permanently shut down.

Following the recent retune, both my TV/Humax systems which have separate aerials both tuned to Winter Hill can no longer receive any of the channels within the COM7 and COM8 groups, including BBC4HD and QuestHD. Yet the Freeview website "postcode predictor" says I should be able to receive them. The Freeview "Help" adviser did not seem to know much, and said that they "have not changed" COM7 at Winter Hill. Is this loss of channels permanent, or regarded as a fault which they will try to fix? Is there any way to get these channels back in the meantime?
