Yes Dave, CC is blowing the windows in so not a problem loosing Kippure. Wish i could get C39 Black Mountain (NIMM) but Kilkeel is CCI and blocking it out. Divis very strong here too.

Peddyr: Look at the radiation pattern on Kippure's page, it looks like IoM is in the main null, although the Ll??n Peninsula of Wales appears to be served!

Why do you want the NIMM as Clermont Carn will give you all the same channels and more? Plus if you can receive (at least) the COMs from Divis you have all the Freeview channels as well.

Dave: Only to experiment with, plus if I could get NIMM then EPG info and series link would probably work which does not on my Freeview HD box. No series link from Saorview being transmitted to date.

I can get all Divis muxes, Kilkeel, CC, and 3R and a couple from Leitrim. Nothing from BM although post code checker says i should.

I'm surprised Divis is interfering with Caldbeck in Ramsey though as Ramsey is mostly shielded from Divis by Skyhill etc..

Peddyr: I wonder if it is possible for the EPG data for Freeview NI and Saorview to be shared and if the authorities would do it. There is a large portion of Northern Ireland that can receive the Republic's signals so they must all be in the same boat.

I suppose that you must have the same issue when using one of the IoM relays and Divis.

EPG info on some Freeview HD stbs seem to work ok but not on all. it'd be interesting to see how the NIMM fairs if I could only get it.

I don't use the relays on IOM as I'm not remotely interested in what happens in NW of England, Manchester, Liverpool etc. IOM should never have been lumped in with that UK region IMO and should have stayed with Border...
