RE-tuned my Humax HD box at noon today and picked up a number of digital channels on C52. I actually watched it for 5 mins or so, including TV3. However, while the channels are still listed in the EPG, there is nothing showing and the signal checker on the box shows 0%. Any thoughts?
I didn't expect to see them at all as I have a loft aerial facing Divis. ( I am in BT667RU )

Also, the NIMM on C39 shows level of 36% whereas all the others from Divis have levels of between 78% and 81%. Why the big difference?

In case this is helpful to someone else trying to get the NIMM. My earlier post details signal levels but 35% on C39 and 80% all others.

I use a variable signal booster to feed a loftbox and 4 other rooms. If I adjust the booster down to a point where signal level is 60% on main channels ( and all work well ), the RTE mux disappears.

Sorry for cross posting, I made a few posts on the Clermont Carn page but its more relevant here;

Petelad thanks for that info. I immediately went to find an old indoor aerial ( no amp ) and plugged it in to my TV. Got all the rte channels inc TV3 from CCarn on C52.

Although this does raise another question. This LG TV doesn't pick up the HD channels or the NIMM from Divis so I assume its not Mpeg4 compatible. Not sure whats going on!
Still, I can't complain.

Petelad. That explains a lot, including how my Humax freeview box tuned in TV3 etc earlier.

In the meantime, I came across this link with an interesting table that helps to explain ;
