Freesat (itv-bbc) channels, how can I get them on an old skybox?

I'm looking to get Freesat (the itv-bbc, not sky) a new freesat box is out of the question. Saving money is the name of the game.

I have a three year old basic sky satellite system, from what I have read on the forums I can use the satellite dish and lnb, but what about the (THOMSON DS14214R) sky box? Is it possible to do some jiggery pokery to it to get freesat? If so what?

I have been thinking of splashing out £30 (lol) on ebay to get a HD/hdmi/hard-drive/usb sky box if that could be upgraded / messed with to get freesat. If you know of particular sky box that fit the bill please let me know what to go for, and what to do to it when I get it.

Cheers.
