Hi team,

My Uncle had an older TV in his room that he had connected to his Sky decoder in his living room via the RF input. Today he replaced said TV with a Veon TV that has built in Freeview.

He and my mother have been on the phone with me for the past hour trying to figure out how to get it going, and what a joy that has been.

What I need to know is, is this input still able to be used to receive his Sky tv through if the TV already has built in Freeview or does he need to purchase other cables? He is a simple man who was hoping that it would just plug in and go and the cable he already has is the perfect length, so ultimately he would like to continue with this one.

And if it is able to be used with this input still, is it simply a matter of tuning?

Thanks in advance for any assistance, I hope I have been clear.

You need to tune analog and digital. there is a dtv/atv button on the remote to toggle between them when you are watching.


On my veon its menu then ATV manual tuning in the leftmost menu to get it to let you search for analog stuff. There is no offer of tuning analog when doing the setup process because it would just waste most peoples time.
