Yep, Mux 2 now officially on air from yesterday.

Nothing really on it, apart from RTE 1 in HD which is really only upscaled at the moment.

RTE 1 HD due to start officially around Christmas or the new year.

Speculation TG4 HD and TV3 HD may be starting soon as well.

I am also seeing test cards and such on C56. Hopefully more HD content to come. I did notice that the error rate is in the E-6 region on C56 versus 0 that I see on C52. Received power level looks very similar though - could be just on the edge of my wideband aerial and 27dB worth of gain on a masthead. But it is early days.

Hi PaulIN!

Have you found that the stations on UHF Channel mixed up with a number of placeholders with no stations detailed only ether SD or HD? Power level from both UHF Channels 52 and 56 are about equal.

I live in North Belfast and when NIMM became available last October the power level for the mux wasn't great (as we are on the Divis side of the mountain range) but was easily tuned. As present I find the power on UHF Channel 39 not as good as before.

Regards

Kieran (North Belfast).

Yes getting SV2 mux on channel 56 in Jordanstown,RTE1HD,+1,RTEjr ,two test card channels & various audio tests.The map on uk free tv indicates less coverage to the North with this mux than the SV1 on channel 52. Signal strength on both 52 and 56 appear however similar at my location despite the dark green coverage indicator falling well short of even South Belfast.

Ian: The difference in predicted coverage is due to the difference in published radiation patterns of the two muxes. See above under the heading "Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?".

Yep, I'm also in Jordanstown Ian and Mux 2 is also the same as mux 1.

Mind you, Clermont Cairn is stronger than Divis at this location.

There is no difference between mux1 and mux2 :)

PeteLad: I wondered if it was to protect against interference with Whitehead and possibly Bellair, but both these use C52 as well. I know they're a long way away, but I would have thought that that is the reason for any null.
