Hi folks, this isn't technically a computer question but I would really appreciate some help. A member of the family has bought a digital TV with HD freeview built in.How do you get the HD freeview to work?Do you need some kind of digital convertor box? He currently has a freeview box but obviously there must be a way to get the digital/TV signal without using this as it obviously wouldn't be HD either? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

The only Ariel connection is the analouge ariel.I've tried it with this but as suspected there is no signal as it isn't a digital signal? All he has is his TV(Digital with built in freeview)his old freeview box which was connected to his old TV via the analouge ariel.

@MechKB 2 I got it sorted thank you.I thought it needed some kind of digital conversion box as it wasn't receiving any channels.Once I set it up for first time installation and scanned for channels it found them fine. Thank you.
