I think I know what the problem is - you must be close to the Gortnageeragh relay station which lies a mile due west of Martinstown. The tuner is picking up channels 42 (D3&4 mux) and 45 (BBC A mux) but they aren't strong enough to read the list of services off them and because the BBC A mux on on the same frequency as the Saorview mux from Moville, it is jamming it from being received
Fionn,Limavady has all the Freeview services, but not NImm multiplex. If you previously had RTÉ One, RTÉ Two and TG4 on analogue but no TV3, it looks like you were receiving from the Moville relay across into Inishowen. TG4 analogue also disappeared from Moville on the 9th October itself as that frequency was now being used for the BBC A (SD programmes) multiplex from Limavady.
All tv's tuned, no RTE stations/radio stations found. Previously had perfect analogue signal for RTE's and TG4. My signal comes from Limavady to the best of my knowledge.
Does the Freeview HD box available from Play.com around £30 pick up RTE?
Try a Freeview set-top-box or TV with a manual tuning option, and try and tune in to channel 45 or 666MHz - this is the frequency being broadcast for Saorview from Moville. You aren't close to Ballycastle by any chance?
Between Ballymena and Cushendall. Tried manual tuning, no joy. Channels 42 and 45 don't hold long enough to pick up any signal. was wondering why G4 disappeared at the first switchover. Doesn't look i'll be able to pick up RTE then!
There *might* be another source for Saorview possible now given the increase of transmitter powers elsewhere. Otherwise the only option is Saorsat.
Im beside the Gortnageeragh relay station. What "might" be another source other than Saorsat. Sorry for being a pain
Micko, in Martinstown here as well.
Before the switchover digital signal was poor and we weren't picking up UTV etc by Freeview.
Now we can pick up all the channels.
Just checked on my own TV there and can pick up all the RTE Channels no problem. On checking the Signal Quality and Strength they were both 10. It is picked up on Channel 52 so coming from Clernmont Carn I assume. So is your TV definately Saorview compatible?
On another issue at my parents home, we have always had 2 aerials, one for BBC and we had to flick a switch on the aerial to pick up RTE.
On the autotune on the TV it didn't pick up RTE, but it needed to be switched to the RTE aerial, and manually tune in the RTE channels.
