Alba Freeview Digital Set Top Box. 4.2 5 391 433
This Product is Excellent & easy to install & use. The Alba Freeview box is excellent and easy to use. I recommend this to everyone. 22 April 2015
Brilliant replacement I purchased this as a reasonably priced replacement for an old digi box that was causing problems (they do wear out after a few years) Having installed this, along with my new amplified aerial, I am delighted with it. It confuses me a little as it switches itself off automatically if the tv isn't on, so I have to remember to switch it on again each time, and then it comes up with odd messages on the screen, but overall I am very pleased with this purchase 21 April 2015
great little box Easy to set up works a treat extra channels too yahoo 14 April 2015
Slow start, but perfect after a few minutes After setting up, switched on and got stop/start interference for a few minutes, as if box had to 'bed in'. After that, perfect. Very easy to use and would recommend. 07 April 2015
it's ok You get what you pay for, ok for a spare tv 07 April 2015

Answer: 
Hi,

You'll need a standard terrestrial aerial cable such as the Philex TV Aerial Extension Kit - 4m (108/3363).

More information about this device can be found at http://argos-support.co.uk.

I hope this helps.

Answer: 
You can either buy a complete aerial, which will have a cable attached to it, or, if you intend to attach it to a loft aerial, you will need a length of coaxial cable with the appropriate plug fittings on the end of it to plug into the set top box

Do I need an outdoor ariel connection?

1 week, 5 days ago
I would like to buy a freeview box to go with a TV in my bedroom. I have no sky/outdoor in this room but do in the rest of the house. Can I just plug the box into the TV for it to work?

Answer: 
Hi Nicole,

I can confirm that this Freeview box needs a standard aerial to function, it will be compatible with an indoor ariel however it may affect your channels due to the difference in signal strength.

I hope this helps,
Thank you for using Argos Q&A

The aerial and cable have been changed. initially things improved, the aerial man managed to get a 90% signal. but now it has dropped to zero again. the telly loses the picture and it tweets like a budgie. it is an LCD digital telly supposedly with inbuilt freeview.

Answer: 
Hello. Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately the Alba set top box will not be of help to you in this instance as it does not act as a booster for the signal. More information about this device can be found at http://argos-support.co.uk. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

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.
