Freeview box for use with sky dish?

Hi all,

I am thinking of getting rid of sky+ but would like to get a freeview box with a hard drive and maybe twin freeview. The only problem is that I can not get freeview through an ariel so it would have to be able to use my old sky dish (must have coax conectors). It would be nice if I could use topup tv card aswell.
Does such a box exist?

many thanks Greame

No Chance. The freeview signal requires a "normal" aerial. The signals are very different and completely incompatible.

You can't use Top Up TV in your Sky box. The channels that are available on Top TV are also available on Sky (and are not time-shared there) but you will have to pay for them individually or as part of a Sky package.

£10/month just to have the recording facility on YOUR Sky+ box!
