I had enormous retuning problems this morning with my various Freeview devices. My Panasonic PVR couldn't see any channels, my Humax 9200T insisted on putting BBC on 800-up channels, and my 8000T couldn't see BBC at all.

I eventually found that the daisy-chain RF cable from my Sky box to the rest of the chain of devices was faulty, and degrading the signal just enough that previously-tuned channels had been just about OK, but a retune decided they were too marginal to use.

Those having problems following yesterday's events might be suffering from the same issue. I twigged when I looked at the analogue output from the Sky box and saw how snowy it was. Those without any remaining analogue devices will have to rely on the signal strength and quality diagnostics from their equipment.
