Dear Geniuses,

I have just bought a new 37" Panasonic with built in Freeview tuner.

I am in a location where I can't get a terrestrial signal worth talking about, so only have a signal through satellite.

I have connected the tv to all my usual devices, and everything looks great.

My question is, can I connect anything that will allow me to tune the Freeview tuner in so that we can have something different showing on this tv than the others using the Sky+ coax output?

I guess that it isn't possible as the Sky signal is different to the Freeview Terrestrial, but if any of you knows better, I would be grateful for advice.

Thanks in advance.

Why not get yourself a freesat HD box, then you'll have alternative viewing.:) Just run another cable from the LNB into the room.

Yep, a Freeview receiver/TV with one built in won't work on satellite, and there is nothing available domestically to make it so.
