In Harlow, I currently receive BBC1, BBC2, ITV London, C4, C5 and ITV Anglia analogue from Virgin via fibre optic to house. Before I have aerial (Freeview), dish (Freesat) or Virgin, I need to know whether with Freesat or Virgin I will still be able to record TV programmes on to DVD using a Sony Freeview DVR, as I have a friend who spends 8 months each year at sea, and I record TV programmes for him to watch when he's home.

I live in Greenwich and when I bought this house one of the 'selling' points was it was already wired for cable TV. Initially it was Cable & Wireless then it became NTL and finally Virgin. My main TV is connected to a satellite dish so is not a problem. I received through cable, free of charge, BBC1 and 2, ITV, Channel 4 and 5, in the kitchen and bedroom. When the dish was installed the engineer said he could not connect the other TV's using the existing cable installation. Does anyone know how I could still get the 'free' channels on my bedroom and kitchen TVs

Pam: There is a couple of issues connected to that question, the first being, are you intending to scrap the cable service or have you already done so? as if you are (or have already done so) then are TV's you refer to Freeview capable sets? because if they are then all you require is a suitable aerial to be installed to feed the Freeview signal to both devices provided there are no restrictions in force at your place of residence that would not allow this to be done.

The other aspect being, that you could also receive Freesat on these TV's if the LNB on the dish was changed to a quad 4 output type (if not already that) and a pair of cables run from the LNB to the kitchen and bedroom TV's, of course it would also be necessary to purchase a Freesat receiver for each TV meaning that this method would probably be the most expensive of all.

Maybe you could clarify on the cable question as this determines the options available, plus if Freeview is a possibility then a post code or one from nearby (a shop etc) is necessary to access the signal predictor, this to get an idea of the level of signal thats expected in your area.

I would suggest a weekly slot on live TV to update older people understand what they have on their
New service.
Most older people I have installed for do not realise ther is life beyond 1 2 3. 4. And. 5
