Key: Modulator With modulator PVR Hard disk recorder

* RF loopthrough – Your main TV aerial connects into set-top box, and the box has an aerial output socket that can be used to feed a TV or video recorder regardless of whether the Freeview box is on or off. For a fuller explanation, see our Glossary
* RF modulator – Modulated output indicates that a box can ‘re-broadcast’ the output onto a new TV channel, so that your TV or video can ‘tune in’ to the Freeview signal (this is especially useful for TV and video equipment that don’t have SCART sockets).
