Tom: The Technisat should receive the NI mini multiplex (RTE1, RTE2, and TG 4) when it comes on air as this should conform to Freeview standards.
However, as has been reported elsewhere, it appears to have problems with Saorview. TG4, TV3, 3e etc. are apparently fine. RTE1 and RTE2 disappear after a few minutes. It appears to be a software glitch which Technisat refuse to fix since the unit is designed for the UK market.
Brian: Saorview does not transmit BBC1, BBC2 and BBC3 and BBC News. Any chance of you putting the correct Saorview channels on the ROI transmitter section ?
