Tacolneston (Norfolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter

I have three Bush IDLCD27TV006 tvs with built in Freeview, since the South of the Anglia region changed to digital only I find they are freezing/not responding to the r/c on ITV, CH4 and CH5.
I am on the Tacholneston transmitter, done full factory resets etc. All these channels are 64QAM, all the rest on 16QAM still work fine.
Do we know if any changes to the transmission have taken place to cause this or is it a temporary changeover thing as if it isn't it's a disaster as it only seems to affect these tvs!!
Any comments or information would be gratefully received.

Thanks for the reply Mike, but I'm afraid you don't get the cigar as I've come across a couple of other people with assorted BUSH sets with the same problem!
Ie: Is it a TV set problem or has anything changed in the transmission that's upsetting them?

Yes, I fully understand that fact!
I was purely wondering whether we knew if the transmission had changed [which it appears to have] and whether it was something temporary/a glitch that was known about, or was it a permanent change that has disabled the sets, as I am sure they will not be updatable?

So have we suddenly been switched to 8k mode two weeks ago, is there anywhere I can find out this kind of information? Ie: What is actually coming out of my local transmitter at this time?

Thank you KMJ I had thought there was no 8k until switchover as you have confirmed.
The Tradeview page is very useful for the future but needless to say says that at the moment all is how it has been for ages. Interestingly at exactly the time my problems began this area also lost Videoplus and auto clock setting options on Analogue, so someone somewhere is doing something, they're just keeping very quiet about it.
Is there not a huge long updating list of what is being done, and where, published by whoever runs the transmitters nowadays?
