    Hi, I have an NTL box that they have failed to come collect - can I use it as a freeview box in some way? Thanks.

    Nope, NTL STB's are designed for cable broadcasts and can not receive DTT or Dsat signals. The STB is still their property so unless we are talking about months and not a few days past the collection date then either hold onto it or give the a ring to collect it before you start billing them for storage:)

    If they dont collect it for ages and you know that they wont want it back (like months)

    They are going on ebay for £20+ plus postage so you could nearly buy a freeview box with that!
