Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Selkirk transmitter area
Have the channels returned?
I can't find any faults or outages listed for the Peebles Relay Transmitter either by Freeview or the BBC.
Was it a case of the channels disappearing but signal was still present, or did the No Signal message pop-up?
If it was the latter, I hope you didn't retune!
Retuning when you have no signal or badly pixellated pictures will usually just clear the correct tuning. There should be no need to retune these days unless a commercial operator has made some changes to their channels and you'll usually get a pop-up message to that effect.
If you did retune and you haven't got the channels back, you'll need to repeat the retune when signals are normal, you may have to try several times as you won't know when that will be.
