Do not know your stb but I would suspect there is a setup menu or installation menu where you can stipulate the UHF channel you use. Or am I reading your post incorrectly are you saying you wish to pick up the terrestrial freeview TV channels with a satellite box????....err no :-idiot

the box has an aerial in and tv out socket as well as the usual lnb in and out. The instruction book tells me how to vary the carrier channnel out of the box but not how to actually tune any individual tv channnel. The fact that it had the aerial input I thought it could maybe receive and clear the digital tv channels given they use dvb type technology. Unfortunately there are not too many british owners of my box so was not too optimistic getting a reply so thanks for at least taking the time to respond.
