    Irish TV astations Gone 4th Mar 18 at 9:52 PM
    I live in the Armagh area and use to receive pretty decent coverage from the Republic. Transmitter Clermont Carn. I canít get from the Monaghan transmitter because of a large building blocking the signal

    Anyway theyíve all vanished. In the past they use to be in the 800 range but that range has gone completly. So what to do. Has anybody had the same problem and got a fix?

    I stumbled across an article tonight where some American was promoting this supper new indoor TV aerial, TVSurf Antenna. Google it and see. Anyway Iím not interested in that but I did look at some modern indoor aerials on Amazon and Iím wondering if they are all theyíre made out to be.

    That said all Iím really interested in is in getting RTE1 AND 2 and TNaG

    I know someone near me who put the sky dish on a pole at the end of the garden .

    That is freeview and need a modern Full HD Tv to receive(not just HD ready)

    The Eire transmitters mentioned use Saorview

    When did the channels vanish? First thing I would do is check my aerial, to see if it's still there, and pointing in the right direction! Otherwise maybe there's been a change at the transmitters? If you can't get it with an outdoor aerial, don't bother with an indoor one.
