I have a YouView box and have lost all free view channels.
I have tried re-tuning but it only retunes internet channels.

As the first step Brian, remove the power from the youview and wait 10 minutes.
Then power it on, try to retune and tell me if it now picks up the channels.
Let me know the results please

It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
