  • You will need two TV Aerials
  • Careful inspection of the map (and ideally some local advice) is necessary as unlike with a satellite solution, it is not a one size fits all
  • You must be also careful to order exactly what you need

When placing the order you must....

  • Choose which mounting bracket suits you best
  • Make sure that the 50/52 diplexer suits your local Freeview and Saorview transmitters

Installation Steps

  2. Set up the Freeview HD System
    • Install the UHF aerial for the UK Freeview HD transmitter along with the UHF Masthead amplifier & Power unit
    • Connect the aerial to the Receiver & tune in the UK Freeview HD Channels
    • Verify you are picking up all the Freeview HD channels
  3. Set up the Saorview System
    • Install the UHF Aerial for the Irish Saorview channels
    • Most likely you will not need to use a power unit & amplifier - but use if necessary
    • Connect the aerial to the Receiver unit & tune in the Irish Saorview Channels (temporarily disconnect the Freeview HD Aerial)
    • Verify you are picking up all the Saorview channels
  4. Combine 2 systems
    • Use e.g. a 35/37 UHF Diplexer to combine the 2 aerials together. Do this AFTER the power units etc.
    • Feed the combined Aerial output into your Receiver
    • Verify you are picking up all the Saorview & Freeview HD channels

Q: What If I can"t get Freeview in my area?

  •  The best option to get the UK channels on a satellite dish and the Irish Channels on a TV aerial and feed them into a single combo receiver

Q: What if Freeview & Saorview operate on the same frequencies?

  • It is still possible to combine them but you will miss out on the frequencies that clash.
  • Alternatively of course you could just use 2 boxes (or a box and an MPEG4 HD TV)
