    Hi,

    I have just purchased a Bush Freeview + HD 500GB Smart Digital TV Recorder for use in the van, No instructions have been supplied with the item as it was an Argos return,

    I already have an Oyster satelite dish and the cables from it are 1 x aerial push on type fitting and 1 x screw on type fitting like the ones you get on a home skybox, the bush unit doesn't have this facility (screw on), do I need it or will the push on be sufficient?,

    I have tried to set up but cannot locate any channels???

    You will need a sat decoder to get the Oyster to work and an ariel for what you have bought.
