Sorry if this is not the right place to post but I want to know one way or the other if my Amstrad DRX300 box can be used as a DVB box without it being connected to a dish.

All I get on the screen is "No Satellite Signal Being Received"

Now I have a really nice digital aerial I would love to connect it to and make use of my old box as a DVB box but I can not work it out.

so why does the box have a standard coax input as well as the T3 ?

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

To loop-through the TV antenna and to add the sky box's output to the TV via RF...

OK

Thanks for putting me right...

So I now haw two choices...

1) move the feed from the dish...
2) go buy a dvb box...
