The digital switch over is them turning off the analogue transmissions, which frees up space to boost the power of digital transmissions, and they rearrange the channels on the muxes while they do this. 

I believe they only transitioned one mux  last night to give people a chance to make sure their equipment works with the digital only channels before they lose everything, hence why you need to retune again in 2 weeks.
