How can I Receive Freeview on two TVs using one Freeview box
published on UK Free TV

It is possible to do this, but only if the Freeview box has an RF output. Even then you won't be able to change the channel.

As you can get Freeview boxes from £20, it is probably better to put a Freeview box on the second set.

TLS - A freeview TV doesn't need a digital box because it is built-in, except if you want HD the in-built is not HD. Only analogue devices, like your old tv, need a digital box to enable them to receive freeview channels.

steven preston: Let me get this right - your Talktalk/Humax recorder is downstairs, but you want to connect a TV in the bedroom to the aerial.

Ok, assuming you've got an outside aerial, you could split the signal (easiest if your cable runs inside the house, and through the loft). Your nearest main transmitter is Rowridge, which is 52km away, but you might be fine without a booster. Someone is probably able to tell you how to do this better than I can, but its not difficult. Just buy a decent metal splitter (about a fiver).

You could even just put up a portable, but I wouldn't bet on it.
