Hannah: Not if you use the "other channels" procedure, as the original EPG listings does not get altered in any way.

Catherine Burns: In your general area it would appear to be variable as to what can and can't be received. As a result, my answer is somewhat open.

If you can receive analogue from the Republic, then you will be expected to be able to receive Saorview afterwards, if indeed you can't receive it now.

On the B53 which is adjacent to Lough Melvin and I gather you are in this area.

I looked at Streetview and some houses have two aerials; one on the local Gortnalee relay transmitter (aerials vertical) and one horizontally polarised and pointing in the opposite direction to Gortnalee. By my reckoning the latters are pointing to Truskmore whose digital (Saorview) signal will increase in strength on Wednesday.

For reception of Saorview you will need a Freeview HD receiver.

It would appear (bearing in mind that I don't have local knowledge and am relying on online sources) that you will be limited to the Public Service Freeview channels. This is because Gortnalee will only carry them which are BBC standard definition and high definition, BBC radio, UTV, UTV+1, UTVHD, ITV2, Channel 4, Channel 4+1, Channel 4HD, E4, More4 and Channel 5.

Only main transmitters carry the Commercial channels like Film4 and Dave but due to what I gather is the low-lying land you live on it is doubtful that you will be able to receive from one of these transmitters which are Limavady and Brougher Mountain.

Catherine Burns: If you don't receive analogue from the Republic now and this is because you don't have an aerial on one of its transmitters, then you will of course need to get one installed (assuming that at your exact location reception is possible).

If you have a single aerial on Gortnalee then you will receive only Freeview Public Service channels, as explained above. Gortnalee will not broadcast RT, TV3 or TG4.

Due to the channels used by Gortnalee and Truskmore it will be possible to combine the feeds from two aerials into one downlead using a suitable diplexer. This will allow reception of signals from both transmitters on the same receiver(s).

For 3 months now my husband has been going crazy over my past. Before I was married to him I did some things in my past and I was totally honest with him about it. After we got married thats when it started bothering him. He hit me once because of his anger and has said alot of mean things to me that i could not stand. Sometimes he will be fine and then another moment he will be mad at me and look at me with disgust.there nothing i can do to help him or anything i can suggest to help myself because i fear for our marriage and my safety, so one day he went out and never came back after 2 weeks he called, telling me that he is no longer coming back home that he wants to look for another lady to marry over where he is, after his call, i broke down in tear, i was heart broken, i was confused, i went into search for help and at the final stage of my search i came across a wonderful man that has helped many people to save there relationship so when i told him my problem, i was suprise that it took him only 3 days to solve my problem and after that 3 days my husband returned home to me and for the past one week we have been living like husband and wife coverd with love, everything is in peace now
