    Thanks for the info daveyboy. I live in Ireland too and currently use a H2S (I live in the countyside a few miles outside Navan so a H2H/Vermin solution can't be used by me). Like many people on here I'm now looking for alternatives since the Sly channels are going away. By the looks of it the H2 is meant to work with an ariel (i.e., a terrestrial receiver), right? I don't mind drilling a hole and running cable myself, and I suppose a small outdoor ariel doesn't cost too much. I like ZGemma anyway (the H2S I'v had since last Novermber has been great, very robust. Any powercuts, etc, and i just power it up, and off it goes - it never crashes. What's the craic with these cheaper boxes versus the H2 though?

    I'd be very interested as to how you get on with this as I'm in the same boat, but I know a "coat hanger" will do me with a DVB-T tuner.
    So, please keep us informed.
    Cheers.

    To get the RTE Terrestrial signal, all you need to get RTE channels is a Saorview box or Saorview TV, or a Freeview HD box or Freeview HD TV, (Freeview HD not Full HD).

    Hi. Is it possible you have a Saorview ready TV and try an indoor aerial or go the external aerial and then you don t bave to buy any other tuner.
    most modern tv s have a tuner built in.
