If you only have the dish and a TV then you need a satellite receiver,,

FREESAT - Designed for UK programs and has a dedicated channel guide like you have on a home TV. Equipment will have the Freesat logo on it.
FREE TO AIR - Any cheapo satellite receiver, still gets same channels but will not be in any sensible order unless you arramge them via favourites.

FREEVIEW - Is UK TV via an aerial..(y)

Not familiar with your brand of TV so unsure if it may / may not have satellite built in. Maybe check on back for the "F" style socket and a little pic of a sat dish :)

Sat dish - Receiver/Decoder (if not built in) - TV (decoder built in?) = Sattelite reception.

RF aerial - Freeview box (if not built in - TV (decoder built in?) = Freeview channels via ground based transmitters.

If your TV is a cheap one it may not have either a Freeview decoder or Satellite decoder bulit in to it.

Way to go. It will need a 12v power supply which you could piggy-back the TV 12v or a separate supply.

Our van has 12v in the wardrobe where the satellite connections are and I could put a box in there out of the way. However, I decided to go the whole hog and buy a new TV with the Freesat decoder built in. More expensive option but less connections and wiring.

Good luck

Something like this is what you need.

I’ve got the model before this one and I mounted it in the wardrobe and fitted an rf repeater outside the wardrobe for pointing the remote at.
