Does anyone know if it is possible to use a satellite dish to receive terrestrial digital on a freeview box. I would like to receive channels 4 + 5.

Cheers, Dibsy.

No - that won't work at all i'm afraid.
You need a proper UHF aerial for your freeview box.

Thanks,
unfortunately i'm not in a freeview area, so it looks like i'll have to wait until it comes on fta on the sat.

Cheers, Dibsy
