Hello guys,

I installed a sky set yesterday, but was disappointed with the image quality of it compared to freeview uhf hd. And because I want to have the closed captions, I'm wondering if there is a solution for both. Except uhf antenna, I also have a dish on the roof which receives sky and freeview satellite signal, and all signal come through the same terminal on the wall.

Thanks for any input.

You simply need a TV or STB that supports Freeview|HD and a UHF aerial.

Sorry for my english. I mean I have an UHF antenna and a dish on the roof. And I have my sky machine installed already. What I'm planning is to have a satellite freeview receiver hooked up with my sky machine. My sky machine tv out terminal to satellite freeview receiver input to tv. Is that possible? Thanks.

The picture from Freeview Satellite is not HD and around the same (or worse) than what Sky transmit. I don't see any point in what you want to do.

If you want Freeview|HD you'll need to use your aerial.
