Answer:
Hello, Thank you for your question. No, unfortunately the Alba Freeview Digital Set Top Box will not work with a sky aerial. As it is a freeview box it uses a standard aerial, however you will be able to use a freesat box with your sky aerial. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer:
already tried to use a Wentronic 50071-GB 2.0m 15 Pin SCART Plug to High Density Plug Audio Video Cable but it's not working. So, one option is to try with a HDMI-scart cable but my question is whether a TV bought in USA work in UK... what do you suggest?

thanks!

Answer:
What if I use a Wentronic 50071-GB 2.0m 15 Pin SCART Plug to High Density Plug Audio Video Cable? I bought one but it's not working... So before trying with the scart HDMI adaptor I would like to be sure that it's just a matter of cables... not sure if a TV bought in US works in Uk?

Answer:
Hello, Thank you for your question. As for using a scart to HDMI cable this will not be possible (as the cables don't exist), however you can buy adapters that will do what you want, but this will not be as good as a straight connection from scart or HDMI natively. You would probably be best to purchase a freeview box which has a HDMI port. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer:
Hello, Thank you for your question. If you cannot get signal in your bedroom chances are that adding a freeview box into the mix wouldn't help in any way. This is because the problem is most likely with your aerial not with the TV. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
