Could you tell me please. Is it true if a TV doesn't have a scart plug, it will not work when digital take over?

Not true, just check that the digibox has a UHF output socket (modulator) so that it will plug into the TV. You will have to tune the TV to channel X, (usually 32)

I haven got a digbox for this tv as it hasn't got a scart socket. I know if it had,a digibox it would work.

You need to look carefully for a freeview box with a UHF modulator. All have two UHF sockets - in and out, but tha vast majority have no modulator and will ONLY output freeview via scart.

I googled this and found no easy link to boxes with this feature. but you could use one of these:

Or look at when your area is due to change over and start saving now for a new TV; yours must already be quite old and the costs above make quite a contribution to a new TV

Thank you for that info. I was just wondering about the old tv. Going to have a new arial for digital and wondered if the old tv would work. I do have a new tv 9 months old, so not in need. Thanks again for info.
