Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Limavady transmitter area
Paul Fisher: Is the set a Freeview HD one, which means it contains a DVB-T2 tuner? If not then you will not receive Freeview HD services. Saorview uses DVB-T only therefore a non-Freeview HD receiver capable of showing HD pictures will receive RT One HD and RT 2 HD.

E Mark : Please note that engineering work has been taking place at the Limavady station since last Monday 22nd, warnings of a "possible weak signal" having been posted on the engineering page, this being the most likely reason for your problem, no expected completion dates having been given.
Carry out a retune as suggested by derryuser, if though nothing is received keep trying, as the signal will return.
