    I'm interested in putting TV channels through a projector and sound system and have come to the conclusion that I should use a Freeview box.

    However, I would also like to receive Sky which is pumped via an analogue signal through my RF aerial from a Skybox in another room.

    Does anyone know of a Freeview box that also has a built in analogue tuner?

    Alternatively I could use a video recorder to tune in the Sky signal but this would mean investing in yet another piece of kit.

    Does anyone have any ideas??

    I have never heard of a Freeview box with an analogue tuner as well.
    Actually dont understand why you need one. You dont say that you actually want to watch analogue as well as Sky and Freeview; there would be little point. Perhaps I am missing something!

    The problem is that the Sky comes as an analogue channel (using Sky Extender) from the remote digibox.

    There are no FV boxes of ANY type with analogue tuner, if you really need Sky get another box for the HC room and swap the card

    cards are married to the box so swapping card wont work.......... mirror sub will £10 a month and get a sky box in the PJ room (will look so much better) get all of your channels on your main box in the other room
