Just got my USB DVB-T dongle. Scan gave me 7 channels on 538000 and 570000 around 6-7PM. But I cannot find any existing channel now. Pretty strange, is FreeView doing some upgrading or servicing tonight for GA tomorrow?

You should have also found the kordia mux at 666000 aswell. I don't think they are down.

Thanks for the reply.

I think it is OK now. Maybe they were doing some adjusting or something like that on 1/4 evening. I now get around 17 of them including two FM channels that covers 538000, 570000, and 666000.
The dongle is a no brand DVB-T Dongle from ebay HongKong for 30$ including postage, 25$ for DVBViewer, both of them work pretty well now. Cool Cool.

The only problem here now is I found is my computer without hardware H.264 decode support is not fast enough (It is OK, but processor usage is around 80% which is not good)
Maybe need to spend some money to setup a HTPC for playing media.
