I recently pulled out my old Freeview box ( Supernet 4200s ) http://digitdirect.net.nz/index_files/userguide.htm now i recently have purchased a " Kaiser Bass" USB TV stick. Was wondering if its possible to somehow connect the two up together. Because i don't have a UHF Aerial only a Sky dish is installed on this house. 
 
The Supernet 4200s has a RF IN/OUT and "LNB" IN/OUT  
 
Currently i have connected the SKY dish to the "LNB" IN and i get freeview  on the TV perfect Via RCA Cables 
 
i have then tried to connect the "RF" Out to the "kaiser Bass USB". But when i start searching for channels i can't seem to find anything ( Plus since i am renting i don't want to buy a UHF aerial ) 
 
Have used Two programs  
 
TotalMedia 3.5TotalMedia 3.5 ( Which Software that comes with it ) 
 
NPVR  
 
Tried Scanning all regions and country's with both software 
 
The "Kaiser Bass" Came with its own internal UHF aerial that plugs in but i can't seem to pick up anything off that ( don't think Freeview reception is great where i live )

Nope.

There is no possible way for what you're trying to work, the RF output from the STB just has an analogue RF output of the STB output, it doesn't output a DBV-T signal.

If you don't live in a Freeview|HD coverage area you're not going to get Freeview receception on a device that only supports Freeview|HD.

If you want to use the stick you'll need to install a UHF aerial.
