This is very strange. nobody is reporting a transmitter fault or Planned Engineering.
Where is your aerial, on the roof or in the loft? I assume that if you are getting your signal from Hagg Wood then the aerial rods (or squashed Xs) are vertical. Have you looked at the aerial to make sure it's still pointing correctly?
We really need a full postcode to look at your predicted reception.
You could also look in your TV Tuning section and try a manual retune for UHF channel 45 for the BBCB HD multiplex.

Since the weekend, we are only able to receive the main BBC channels from the Hagg Wood transmitter. I have done a retune but this has made no difference. I might add that this transmitter has often been problematic over the years.
