You can Jon, but you will only be able to receive a few channels, as the digibox firstly will only save 50 non-Sky channels and only covers two symbol rates. There is also another fly in the ointment, unless you know the pin number for the box, it will not let you view other channels.

Why not buy yourself a cheap patchable receiver like the Technomate and then you will be able to view all free to air channels and possibly some other ones?
