Northern Ireland "mini multiplex" (NIMM)
I have added information to the UK Free TV database to cover the so-called mini-multiplex that will carry three Irish channels, TG4, RTE1 and RTE2 in a very special multiplex from three transmitters in Northern Ireland.
However, you will not be able to view these services using a standard-definition Freeview receiver - a Freeview HD box or set will be required. It is not known at this time if the NIMM will carry RTE2 in HD, as per the Saorview service. TG4 and RTE1 are broadcast in standard definition at the moment.
mrdtv. I get your point about Clermont Carn, but I'm 4 miles north of the mountains & getting the C.C. signal through a dip to the west of the range. A guy across the road from me is pulling in C.C. on an original NewcastleAerial (not sure of group) as it's about 4 miles line of sight. He just added a masthead amp & tweaked the aerial west by a wee few degrees. Thanks too Dave, no danger of me having any interaction with Kilkeel (Aughrim Hill), it's totally blocked to the north (Newcastle, Dundrum, Castlewellan, etc) by the mountain range. I was consodering a 21 - 37 combined with 39 - 68 (split at 38 / screened) from aerialsandtv.com. Do you think this would have the desired effect for me? Also, what aerial group is Clermont Carn? Thanks Again to both of you!
Damian Cooper: Now that we know your situation I would get the Ch51 diplexer from aerials and tv. CC is a Group C/D. Why bother with the NIMM if you get CC as it has the full Saorview package, but if you want CC and Divis/Black Mountain then the Ch51 diplexer is the right one. Kilkeel won't interfere but Moel-y-Parc might be an occasional nuisance with NIMM. Of course FreeviewHD needed.
