Just got a new TV with built in freview.

Plug in back of TV is an aerial plug. But the plug I have coming out of my wall is a LNB cable. As its running off a sky dish (dont have sky now).

Is there a connection you can buy to join the LNB cable to the aerial plug? And whats it called.

If so would places like Dick Smith have them?

You could use an F type to Belling Lee adapter BUT in this case it won't do you any good. The inbuilt freeview is known as DVB-T H.264. DVB-T means terrestrial and that the signal comes from a tower on a hill via a UHF aerial to your TV. You need to have a UHF aerial installed if you are in a coverage area.




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.


Banana?

You need a UHF aerial and you need to live somewhere that can recieve DVB-T transmissions.
If you want to use the cable in the wall, you need to get a Freeview Satellite receiver (and these are not built in to TVs).
