Most BBC Freeview channels have disappeared.
BBC4 is there but BBC1, 2, 3, and News are gone - all other channels are
OK.
Central Scotland.
Anyone else?
Or is it just me?

Yes - several times to no avail.

But I just tried switching off and got them back for a while but now they
are gone again.
I guess the Freeview box is on it's way out (?)

Can you check that.
I can see Earl's Hill on the map (rough NGR NS719885), just west of you, but
although there are masts shown, there is no obvious sign of a TV transmitter
there.

Not surprising since its an ILR analogue site.

Your DTTV comes from Black Hill.

Definitely no loss of BBC1 where I was (um, Bannockburn) last night. Watched
tail end of QT OK---although rather boring.
