picking up analogue on a freeview box?

Can any Freeview boxes also pick up analogue TV?

We use a Sky+ box as the source for our main TV. I'd like to run Sky in to a projector in another part of the house. The Sky+ box has a second RF output that can be controlled independently using a Sky Eye on the RF cable. The problem is in converting RF back to video for the projector.

Ordinarily I would consider using a VCR to do the conversion, but I can't do that in this case. I've also looked for RF demodulaters and TV-to-AV convertors but not found anything yet. Does anyone know if a freeview box would do the trick?

Thanks in anticipation.

No. Freeview boxes will only receive digital muxes.

If you're trying to keep it all in one box, the only thing close that you might get would be a DVD recorder with both analogue and digital tuners.

But then, of course, you know already that shifting video around using RF is the worst possible way to do it - right?

Have you considered using a video sender, or, better still, cabling up for SVideo or RGB?
