Digital switchover - no problems - all Freeview channels available. End of last week ITV3 and Yesterday showed "no signal " for approximately 48 hrs. Then reappeared - normal transmission. This morning again no signal - WHAT IS HAPPENING? Allother Freeview programmes no problem, only ITV3 and Yesterday affected.

Barbara Abbosh: These channels are on low power until 18th April when you will have to do a retune for them. You will probably have to sit it out until then.

This is the nature of digital transmissions. Whereas analogue will fade in that it will be grainier when weaker, digital pictures will either be there or not there. So a slight fluctuation in signal level could result in loss of picture which of course could come back at some point.
