Alba Freeview Digital Set Top Box. 4.2 5 402 444
exactly what we wanted We needed to set up freeview on an old tv we borrowed for some visitors. This set performed exactly as required with an indoor aerial (we are in a strong signal area). Straightforward to set up. Happy to recommend this product. 27 May 2015
good product and easy to set up. Good product which is easy to set up. 26 May 2015
An excellent devise at a very goog price My previous set top box was out of sinc. Sound and Picture. This replacement is excellent. Very easy to set up and works very well at a reasonable price. An excellent buy! 19 May 2015
Does everything you'd expect! Bought this for my bedroom after my old one broke. Does everything the dearer freeviews boxes do at a fraction of the price. Does looks a bit cheap, but for being in the bedroom and out of view it's perfect! 19 May 2015
Fitted the bill Bought as top box for bedroom tv did everything it said on the tin Very pleased 19 May 2015

Answer: 
Hi Jane!

I can confirm that Southern Ireland have Soarview and you will need to purchase a box compatible with this, as Freeview will not work.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

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 month, 2 weeks 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.
