Dorothy Bunsee: There's a report at the top of the page now:

"SALISBURY transmitter - Freeview: BBC Digital TV Off Air; DSO related from 09:26 today,"

It doesn't say when it's coming back though.

I thought we'd done DSO already.

Jackie tothill: Engineering work at Salisbury has been taking place during daytime only and won't be taking place over the weekend. Have you attempted to retune your TV whilst you had no signal? If you did, this will have deleted all of your channels (retuning when there is a problem is always a bad idea).
