A friend inherited a Vodafone HT500a box when he bought an old Panasonic Plasma TV (with no built in Freeview)


Can this box be used just to watch Freeview using a UHF antenna as there are 2 sockets marker ANT IN and RF OUT.


Should I suggest he give up on this T Box and get the likes of a  DISH TV set top box as he doesnt want too spend much. 


I have looked in the forum but its mostly about comments from people who are using the device

Nope. Unit is DVB-C (cable) only.

Strictly speaking the kit belongs to vodafone as well, they were never sold.
