    Missing Com 6, ARQ B, UHF Channel 29 538MHz (no signal)

    Scanned multiple times. Changed indoor Ariel. Not working

    Switched to Spare Freeview box for scanning, did not work

    From your description your aerial is the problem.
    Room / set-top aerials are seldom ideal and often need re-orienting / slight movement / relocation to get good results on the different transmitted frequencies.

    Take the TV to one of your neighbours who uses a loft or (better) a roof aerial and tune it all in. Then never, ever retune it again if you lose a channel.

    Try your room aerial with the rods vertical rather than flat/horizontal as this may be better now Rowridge has been re-engineered to transmit the best signals in Vertical Polarisation. In any case, moving the aerial to find the 'sweet spot' for your missing channels is one solution. [The other is to get a proper rooftop or loft aerial installed].
