while you might be able to knock together something that might work well enough as a dish I doubt you could find cable or components for an LNB there..... you definately aren't going to be able to assemble a set top box with clock radios and pencil sharpeners... you can buy everything you need brand new for $300 or so - if thats too much to spend then I would question if you really needed the freeview kit in the firstplace

freeview != wifi
