Chunky: Yes, that's correct. 51 & 52 are the logical channel numbers you enter on your remote to view the channels. C39 is the UHF channel corresponding to 618MHz. Do you get any signal strength or quality readings when you select C39?

Chunky: Have you checked with any neighbours as to whether they get reception of the NI mux? It may be that you have an older grouped aerial (Divis is a group A transmitter, but the NI mux on C39 from Black Mountain is outside the group A frequency range and a group A aerial won't have been designed to receive this frequency).

StevensOnln1: that could be the reason....my aerial does look relatively basic horizontal in comparison with neighbouring aerials

J Hamilton: If you provide a full postcode we'll be able to see if you can get RTE1/2 & TG4 on the NI mux. Some areas can also receive overspill signal from the Republic of Ireland. I understand that Sky subscribers in Northern Ireland are also able to access some of the Irish channels via satellite.

J Hamilton: The Digital UK trade checker shows a weak signal for the NI mux from Black Mountain for your postcode, so I think you would struggle to get good reception. It might be worth asking a local aerial installer as they should know what reception is possible in your area.

Hi hope you can help me with my problem. When I moved into my new house I was able to pick up rte1, rte2 and tg4 but over time the quality of the signal got worse. So I retuned both my TV tuner which uses Freeview and my Youview box which resulted in no Irish channels at all using Autotune. I'm not sure which transmitter I receive my channels from because as the crow flies I'm inline with both the Divis and Black Mountain Transmitters. Is there any way of checking which transmitter I receive my channels from? Can you check this for me - My postcode is BT714QZ.. and also can you help me on how to manually tune my receiver to receive requested channels.
