    Might sound like a silly question but can I buy projector & connect it to a Freeview box via cable without the need for a tv? If so could you recommend a projector for under £100 thanks for your help

    Do you mean plug the TV aerial into the freeview box, and then HDMI from freeview box? Then yes you can, however, not all projectors have built in speakers, so.you would need some form of external speakers etc for sound.

    If your PJ doesn't have speaker facilities then the box can be connected by HDMI to a receiver, with pass through facilities, or a stereo amp that has it's own inbuilt DAC by digital optical to facilitate sound from external speakers.
