This month saw the addition of IB3, or Illes Balears 3. This is the public bradcasting station from the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera). Televisió de Catalunya's TDT channels are also available in the Balearic Islands thanks to an agreement between the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Catalan government, and the Balearic Islands government. A similar arrangement is exists for Canal 9 from Valencia. Note that the local language in both Valencia and the Balearic Islands are dialects of Catalan. Ruben joked and said that I could now practice my mallorquín as the local dialect in Mallorca is called.

In addition, I have configured my Logitech Harmony One universal remote so I can also use it for my TV setup in my bedroom which uses a Samsung TV, SCART-based TDT tuner, and TEAC micro hifi system. The Logitech actually provides better control than the OEM remotes.
